Replacing a scruffy garage door has been on my to-do list for a long time. The garage is also the workshop, so I wanted to get some natural light in, make it slightly less icy in winter, and avoid it taking up any space inside (as the previous up-and-over door did).

This solution has worked well - hiding the large double glazed windows behind cedar cladding makes them quite subtle but still lets enough light in to find my way around in the daytime without turning on lights.

Construction-wise it's unremarkable - the exterior face is marine ply, the frame/rails/stiles are more laminated plywood (with hardwood edging) and the core is sheet insulation. As such, it's not as pretty from the inside but it's weather sealed and secure.
