I am building a new house (Barndominium) and will need a large gate to get my motorhome and trailer out of. I would like to have the remote type like garage door opener to open it.

What types are you all using? My search has not come up with much.

I installed a GTO (Gates That Open, Mighty Mule) system on a 16' tubular gate and it works great. You can program your homelink buttons in your car (buttons for a garage door opener) or get fobs or a keypad to open the gate. They also have a keypad intercom system, which allows you to open the gate from your house/shop. Its battery operated and you can either run low voltage wire from an outlet in the ground or use a solar charger.

Curly... I built two 8’ gates. I sent u pics.. but that being said I need two controllers .. I can still make it a one gate slider that would be way simpler and less cost than what I have. Maybe?? The material was already here and I like to fab things so.. all ahead full..

It’s work! Lots of work. Worked me into two bulged discs. 25 years of collecting parts and general stuff so get help when you need it. Hope it all goes smooth for you. Been here one year and just starting to get settled in. This week it’s flood watch, getting hammered here.

I was the lightest of my adult life when we were helping build our house and my shop. My wife was digging me, but I was too tired to chase her. LOL.

You guys kind of touched on why I am moving. Out where I am at you probably will not be able to see my house from the road and my driveway is long and curved. Also there is no crime in the area. So you can see my gate but will not see much else from street. The view on the hill is nice and I am surrounded on three sides by 220 acres. So there will be plenty of security and privacy. That secluded spot also allows me to change the design of my house some. Originally I was thinking of 6,000 square foot shop so I could park my motorhome and trailer inside. Now I feel one that big is not needed and will have 4500 sq ft and a 20 x 100 covered car port for motorhome and trailer. The carport will protect them from elements and if I need to work on them can still put them in shop. Also using two 40 foot storage containers with a 20 foot patio in between them, one for storage and one is a paint booth.
I will be able to reload and shoot my guns when ever I want and can sit on front porch all day shooting my pellet guns.

The barndominum will be completely insulated and air conditioned and painted high gloss white. Floors will be painted a light grey. Will probably have some fans that run at night to draw heat out to help keep it cool. The exterior walls of living quarters are 10 inches thick and will be sealed and insulated. This house will take very little to heat and cool. LED lights through out.

I have big industrial shelving that will go almost up to ceiling. The bottom shelves on them will be about 7 feet high and there will be work benches under each of them with LED lighting.
There will be a ranch style porch on the house.

I am budgeting a motorhome to help with my racing now that I have a good place to keep it. Will be able to leave it hooked up and ready to go instead of having to unload everything late at night when I get home. Plus with motorhome I will not have to drive most of night to get home. Get a shower and go to bed then make breakfast and drive home in the morning.
Everything is designed for ease of use and to be really energy efficient.

You see signs around my area "No Trespassing, I have guns and a backhoe" Which is a joke but you get the picture. With the electric gate and not being able to see my house from street or driveway helps with security.

One other thing in building the house from ground up I have the opportunity to build in some good security systems.

Run CAT 5/6 cable to every place you may want a camera. Run 18-22 four conductor to every door, window or where you would want a motion detector. Did this when I built my new house and shop and it made life very easy to put security and cameras up!

I had Dobermans from when I was born until 1987 when I lost the last one. Tore me up when she died and have not got another since. Now that I am retiring and moving out to the country it is time to get another.
