Before Kris got the jackhammer I watched the guys taking turns manually smashing the cement. Kris rented the jackhammer for one day and it went very quickly! Some of the foundation was rock, and that part crumbled easier than the solid cement.
You can see they used beams to build supports for the opening. It looks big, it looks solid, it looks like you can drive through it ... should work great for storing bales. As we were driving into our (old) garage the other day, I was remarking on how you get an inch clearance on either side and you have to be careful - but I've never hit it! Hopefully we'll be as lucky as with this door!
