Garage door opener, gotta share this, unusual, unique design. one moving part.

11-21-2011 02:20 AM by Craftsman on the Lake | 112 comments »

Update two years later 9/16/13: The opener is still working like the day I bought it. First one that’s lasted this long on my large wooden door. I don’t know where exactly to put this so I guess a blog entry is the best. First of all I am just a guy in Maine with an 18 ft wood garage door. Heavy and older. (the door… I guess me too) Anyway, I am not in any way affiliated with any garage door people or companies or stores that sell them. I’ve had a few garage door...

Just the beginning

A bit of background… We (my wife and I) purchased our first house together in march of 2015 knowing that we would not move in until June. I talked her into a fixer based on the fact that myself and a buddy worked our way through college working for our landlord fixing up his old rentals and also flipping houses for him.

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging thing so please bear with me if this article isn’t quite up to Shakespearean standard just yet! This is my first blog post so I thought I’d make it about something that’s been interesting me as of late. Firstly, my main job is a real estate agent.
