Thanks for all the responses. My neighbor across the alley has a “garage door” style, but with no roof and as others have noted, the electric opener no longer works. So good to know if I go that route, probably best to just get a manual door since the eletric motor will stop working once it is exposed to the weather. I will look at Ponner and Sons, but I’m sure it will be out of my price range. I spoke to my contractor today and he suggested if I’m going to build a whole structure, why not put a deck on top? Interesting. I’ll still be losing sunlight and will need to move some plants, but I would gain useable space with the deck on top… anyway for now I’m resigned to just getting out of the car and opening the gate by hand (that mood may chnage as the weather changes). Thanks again for all the useful comments.
