"Are You Looking For A High Quality
Garage Opener You Can Install Yourself?
It's The Genie Garage Door Opener!"

The Genie garage door opener is one of the finest garage door openers available for the home-handyman / do-it-yourselfer who wants to install the unit him/herself. Genie® provides a great animated video on their website that simply shows how to safely accomplish the installation.

Genie® was the first of the radio controlled residential garage door openers to be mass produced beginning in 1954 by the Alliance Manufacturing Company. Their engineering prowess brought the first screw drive garage door openers to market in 1958. By 1994, Genie® was purchased by Overhead Door Corporation who today continues to manufacture under the Genie® name, a fine line of garage door openers incorporating the engineering refinements from both companies in their products.

We have been following your blog and we have found a lot of useful information in it.

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.
