Garage swing-door install: sill bolt problem

4106 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Willie T
I'm trying to put in a steel door next to the roll-up, and want to locate it in the center(the outer lines are drawn on wall).

The problem is that:
1) The door frame(on the right) would land on the existing sill bolt, unless I move the door over and cut out an "arch" for the jackstud(I hope that's the right term) to fit over it.
2) There would still be no sill bolt for the roll-up door side.

Are there any solutions to this?
Much thanks.

Just a side note, you just removed the shear panel required for that garage to help keep it from swaying in the breeze. Hopefully, it won't bite you when you go to sell.
A wedge anchor by other name.
Be safe, G
