I will look into getting the hardware and ask my builder guy about making a door. However, if I completely strike out on the single panel tilt-up search/solution...can anyone recommend an affordable roll-up that has the absolute best look for a MCM? --Robb

Ask your "overhead door" retailer/installer for a plain-panel sectional roll-up door. The panels will probably be Masonite-faced (unless there's a newer substitute); the only thing showing on the surface might be the carriage-bolt heads (they look like rivets) of the roller hardware. An upgrade would be doors not showing these bolt heads; the hardware would be screwed on with lag bolts from behind (inside). See if they'll do that for you. . .definitely a plus.

But I hope you find the tilt-up you want. Good luck.

Well, I went and picked up my brand new single panel swing-up/tilt-up garage door this week. $300. Here's a photo of it leaning against the wall in my new garage, currently under construction...

These doors are about impossible to find, so I feel lucky to have found one at an affordable price and within driving distance. If anyone needs a door like this the info is...

I'd imagine that you could make something like that out of T-111 siding...it looks very similar...of course, you'd have a wood garage door instead of metal.
