    Steeply angled bottom of overhead door

    I have a fun project on a steeply sloped side. We're putting in coiling overhead doors with the bottom having crazy sloping to it. My plan is to use my spiffy new overhead door family with nested panels to fit the exact angles. I know it'll work but I wanted to ask how other people have handled this kind of thing. Not so much for my benefit but for others in case somebody has done something brilliant and wants to share it.

    The attached image shows the worst scenario. Until the door goes in we're using an opening. I'm sure glad I don't have to park in there.

    IMHO it's just a custom Panel with a sloped bottom edge, and a custom frame with cutoff bottoms, as well. Just how it will need to be bought.

    Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.
