The last house with glass garage door is in LA where the car reigns supreme. And the lot is narrow, so no room for a back end garage. So...I think the glass looks okay here, as it seems to have a reflective coating so that what you see is not the guts of garage (mess) but a reflection of the street, giving some lightness to the facade of the house. I think it's better than steel or wood, which would definitely make the garage even more overbearing.

The glass garage door is in Seattle, but I agree that wood would look overbearing. I think the coated windowed door is classy, and the perfect way to solve a design dilemma on a narrow lot.

Sorry, zagster, the caption under the last photo says LA.
