    What's so special about the garage door at 1.10 in the video?

    Much better than a public one I saw, beside a main street in Armidale NSW (in 1971). It had a cutout, to clear the pedistal when opening. All and sundry could inspect the toilet user in action.I HAD to use the 3 ft by 3 ft room unfortunately, so it was a god send as no others existed in the area. It was known as the "city of churches" so i guess no one looked. No perverts or pedophiles then: not even Lady Godiva's peeping Tom (blacksmith, I think he was, but Tom's occupation doesn't matter)?

    Only thing with that one is there is no barrier on first couple of steps to prevent youngings/pets from going around.Like the basic concept

    Cheers

    Plus that little black rubber foot needs to be relocated so it's not a snag when the gate is in the upright position. Another one:

    Ge , I could raise the roof in my shed/shop. Looks flimsy, though it takes that guy at about 70 odd kg: wonder how it would cope if carrying a heavy load that is above OH&S that is. Looks like polimer/plastic but I do like it.I used to work with a guy who weighed 153kg exactly the same as our offsider (60 kg) plus me at 93kg. he might make it shake, rattle & roll esp if carrying an item of say 40 kg.

    I have the same questions as well. I'm a fatty and I carry heavy stuff. This would be a nice feature to have when I build my big garage. I'd like to have a mezzanine for storage.
