Motor or Manual Pulley? - My wife and I love this windowed-garage door/side entrance idea! Overhead Door Co came out and provided a quote on installing this (8' x 8') in our ManCave (apt unit attached to the garage). Seemed a little steep ($4500) since I did all the prep work (demo/framing/header/drywall, etc). Would you recommend the motor or just a simple, manual pulley system? What does this door have? (a motor in the middle of a living area might be a little odd.)

I always spec manual for houses - just a chain to close and usually you lift it from the bottom of the door frame to open. There's no great need to open these doors fast and they aren't that heavy. The door guys often will try to sell you the electric opener but it's not necessary. Enjoy!

Thanks so much!
Would you recommend a door company do the framework/install and a glass company provide the glass to them? A friend of ours owns a glass company here in the valley and we could get a deal on glass, but not sure if that will be much of a cost savings overall or if the door company would more or less frown on the added complication of getting another company involved.
Again, thanks so much!

They're Emeco chairs with custom upholstery. I think...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Interview: What's Up With Prefab?
HJ: The price is something that can be fixed within the housing industry. Really big developers are already using many prefab techniques in their homes/developments because it's quick and it saves money. This is not a new idea, but it is something that is new to a design-oriented community, because the fact that it isn't completely customizable sometimes implies a poor design. Above: Although this space in this model could be used for a garage, PLACE used it as a dining room for the owners of this home. The metal sliding doors and concrete floors add a fun, industrial twist.
Natalie Myers added this to A New Look for the Overlooked Garage Door
In this modular prefab home, a garage door serves as a floor-to-ceiling window that can be raised to create an al fresco dining experience.
Houzz added this to Sectional Door
Rooms with lower ceilings still need the pivoting function of the sectional door.
