I was pleased that I was able to easily find the proper tall storage cabinet for my garage. I needed lockable storage to keep my toddler away from sharp tools and solvents that my husband stores. Garagetips-101 solved my problem!

I love the detail in your garage building pages. They helped me understand how to engineer a foundation for a garage we are planning that our building department will approve. I had the inspector go to your pages and review what I was talking about. Now, I am studying the wall framing sections, as we plan to build it ourselves this fall. Thank you so much for the great information.

Great stuff on wall framing. I never really understood the on-and-off spacing concepts for the wall studs until I read your explanations.

Little Known Facts

Did you know that the overhead garage door that we are all familiar with today was invented in 1921. It is a fact! A fine gentleman from Lewisville, Texas named C.G. Johnson invented the upward acting door system and in 1926 he invented the electric garage door opener.

The overhead door was a huge improvement over the hinged carriage door of the day, that was heavy and always in the way - open or shut.

Mr. Johnson's concept was a huge success. He aptly named his company, Overhead Door Corporation. Mr. Johnson is still with us today in spirit, as his business has grown to include over 450 authorized dealers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
