What did you put on top of this door to save the wood from rain? - I am busy building a house, in an old barn style. My garage door is fitted on the outside and slide sidewards. How do I protect the wood from rotting from the top?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Lake Guest House might be set back a little bit from the water's edge, but it focuses on the water through large porch and the sliding glass wall that connects inside and outside.
Upon discovery, you realize that the guest house design nearly mirrors that of the main house, even down to the sliding glass walls and muted materials and color palette.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Saltbox
Even when the home isn't historic, a chimney set in the middle of a saltbox roof is a common New England design.
