Canyon Ridge Carriage House (4-Layer), Design 11 with long frosted glass windows.

When the garage door is the first thing you see when you pull in the drive way, you want it to make the right impression. It’s the door that introduces your home to your guests.

The original wood door.

Melaine (@mysweetsavannah) describes her design style as clean, simple and cozy. She and her husband have made a lot of improvements to their lake house over the years including new windows, siding and landscaping.

An insulated Canyon Ridge 4-Layer carriage house garage door was a much-anticipated update that fits their home and low-maintenance lifestyle perfectly.

She used the Door Imagination System to try on different door designs before deciding on this one. She loves having windows in the door and how quiet the door is when it opens and closes. She’s looking forward to lower heating bills because the door is well-insulated, too.
