At Fine Homebuildings first project house, this is the front of the garage that we are converting to warm, livable shop space.
One carriage door (built by Justin Fink) is installed, the other is inside the shop leaning against a wall.
Looks like they got the first carriage door to fit.
It, and its twin will replace a 12 foot overhead door.

------------------------------------------------------------

The first project at the Fine Homebuilding project house: Convert a garage into a warm and workable shop.

The front facade was designed by Chuck Miller and executed by Chris Green and Kevin Ireton.

We removed the double-wide overhead door and reduced the size of the opening, adding the windows and carriage door(s).

Justin built these carriage doors in the woodshop. Look for the weekly Wrap-up video shot in the Fine Woodworking woodshop to see the construction process.
