LEGO Two Car Garage With Door Opener How To Tutorial


Hey everyone! JAYSTEPHER with a complete
tutorial on a Two-Car Garage equipped with an electric garage door opener. First let’s take a 32 by 32 stud base plate. On the bottom-left,
skip seven studs. Let’s set down a 1 by 6 flat tile. Let’s place another 1 by 6
flat tile in the middle, and the last 1 by 6 flat tile on the right. Now take 15 6 by 6 flat tiles. Let’s start on the bottom-left
right above the 1 by 6 flat tile, and place this tile down. These are a bit of a challenge to
press down onto the base plate. A little bit of brute force is needed. So let’s just cake all these
down on the plate. This is going to be the driveway and part of the foundation for the Two-Car Garage Now that the 6 by 6 flat
tiles have been set down, Let’s take a 1 by 8 flat tile. Place it on the bottom-left in this area. Take another 1 by 8 flat tile. Place it on the right. Take a 1 by 2 plate. Place it on the left-hand side of the 1 by 8 flat tile. Repeat the process on the right-hand side of the 1 by 8 flat tile. Let’s place two more 1 by 2 plates. One on the left, and one on the right. Take two 1 by 6 flat tiles. Let’s place these two on the left. Let’s take four 1 by 8 flat tiles. Let’s set them in the remaining area right above the two 1 by 6 flat tiles. Let’s repeat the process on the right-hand side starting with two more 1 by 6 flat tiles followed by four 1 by 8 flat tiles. This will give us a smooth surface for the garage and part of the driveway. Let’s set down a 1 by 8 plate on the left where it’s right next to the 1 by 2 plates. The same goes for the right-hand side. Just set down another 1 by 8 plate. Now let’s set down two 1 by 10- plates. One on the left, and one on the right. Let’s drop down two 1 by 6 plates. One on the left, and one on the right. Let’s place down a 1 by 2 by 2 corner plate on the top-left, and another 1 by 2 by 2 corner
plate on the top-right. Let’s place this 1 by 10 plate
on the right-hand side followed by a 1 by 6 plate. Leave a 1 by 4 stud opening for a door. Let’s begin the first row of bricks starting with two 1 by 2 profile
bricks with single groove. Place one on the left and one on the right. Let’s set down two 1 by 2 bricks right behind the profile bricks. Place two 1 by 3 slopes right behind the 1 by 2 bricks. These are going to act as
stops for the garage door. Next, let’s set down two 1 by 8 bricks. One on the left, and one on the right followed by two more 1 by 8 bricks. Let’s set down two 1 by 6 bricks on the left and right hand sides. Let’s set down this 1 by 8 brick on the top-right followed by a 1 by 10 brick. Let’s set the 1 by 2 brick on the top-left to wrap up the first row Let’s start the second row with two 1 by 2 profile bricks with single groove. Place one on the left
and one on the right. Let’s set two 1 by 1 bricks right behind the profile bricks where they are inside the opening like so. Let’s place two 1 by 6 bricks on the left-hand side. Let’s place two more 1 by 6 bricks on the right-hand side. Set this 1 by 8 brick on the left followed by another 1 by 8 brick on the right. Now let’s set these two 1 by 3 bricks right above the 1 by 8 bricks. Let’s lock in both corners with
two 1 by 2 by 2 corner bricks. Place one on the left and one on the right. Let’s fill in the back portion of the wall with two 1 by 8 bricks. This will wrap up the second row. Let’s begin the third row
starting with two 2 by 2 bricks. Place one on the left, and one on the right right above the profile bricks. Let’s place a 1 by 1 brick on the left right behind the 2 by 2 brick followed by a 1 by 1 brick
on the right-hand side. Let’s take two 2 by 2 inverted slopes. Place one on the left and one on the right. Those are going to be used to support the hinge mechanism for the garage door. Let’s set down two 1 by 10 bricks on the left-hand side followed by a 1 by 2 brick on the top-left hand corner. On the right-hand side, let’s set down this 1 by 10 brick followed by a 1 by 8 brick. In the top-right, let’s set down a 1 by 3 brick. Skip two studs. Place a 1 by 8 brick. Take two 2 by 2 inverted slopes. Place one on the right-hand
side of the 1 by 8 brick and one on the left followed by a 1 by 2 brick and a 1 by 3 brick to finish up the third row. Now take two 1 by 2 bricks with Technic pin. Place them on the inverted slopes on the top. The slopes may come out. So be very careful. Let’s place a 1 by 2 by 2 corner brick on the top-right followed by a 1 by 1 brick. Let’s set down a 1 by 3 brick on the left-hand side of the corner brick followed by a 1 by 2 brick. Let’s skip two studs, and set down a 1 by 3 brick. Let’s place a 1 by 6 brick right next to the 1 by 3 brick. Let’s lock this corner with
a 1 by 2 by 2 corner brick. Let’s set down a 1 by 6 brick. Let’s skip eight studs for a window opening. Place a 1 by 3 brick. Place a 1 by 6 brick right here and a 1 by 2 by 2 corner brick on the bottom-left. Starting back at the top-right, let’s skip a stud, and set down a 1 by 3 brick followed by a 1 by 6 brick. Let’s skip four studs. Set down a 1 by 8 brick followed by a 1 by 2 by 2 corner brick to finish up this corner. Now take two 1 by 2 plates. Place them on top of one another. Set them on top of the inverted slope. Let’s do the same for the right-hand side. Take two more 1 by 2 plates. Set them on top of the inverted slope. Now take two 2 by 3 inverted slopes and a 2 by 4 plate. Place the 2 by 4 plate on top of the slopes. Let’s place down a 4 by 4 plate right on top of the 2 by 4 plate. Place this assembly on the right. Now let’s begin the mechanics
for the electric garage door opener. Let’s start the build with a
5 by 7 Technic beam frame. On the bottom-right, set down one friction pin. Skip a hole, and set down another friction pin. Now on the top-right, let’s place another friction pin followed by two more friction pins. Next, take a 1 by 5 Technic beam. Place it on these two Technic pins on the left followed by two more friction pins. Let’s place one in the top hole and one on the bottom hole. Let’s take a DC motor. Let’s place the motor on the Technic pins. Next, take a 10 to 15 stud linear actuator. Let’s use a three-stud long cross shaft. Place the cross shaft in this hole. Let’s take a cross block. Place it on the top. Take another cross block, and place it on the front. Next take a two-stud long cross shaft. Slip it in the opening. Put the cross shaft right in the center. Next, take a Technic pin that is one and one-half studs long. slip it in the other slot. Now take a 1 by 4 half beam. Place it on the bottom. Stick another two-stud long
cross shaft on the left. Next take a 1 by 5 beam and a one and one-half stud Technic pin. Place the Technic pin in the far-right hole. Set the beam on like so. Let’s lock the unit together
with a 1 by 4 half beam. Let’s take a standard Technic pin with cross shaft. Place it on this side of the assembly. Let’s set down a 1 by 3 half beam followed by a bushing. Take another Technic pin with cross shaft and a bushing. Place the bushing on the Technic pin, and set it inside the half beam. Finally take a 1 by 2 bearing plate. Place it on like so. Set the linear actuator on the frame. So push the cross blocks onto the friction pins. This is a bit tricky. Now take a three stud long
cross shaft and a bushing. Place the bushing right in the center. Slip the cross shaft into the actuator. Now let’s set down a 24 tooth gear right on the shaft. For the right-hand side, We’re going to take a four stud long cross shaft and a bushing. Place the bushing like so. Slip this end into the motor. Now take a 24 tooth clutch gear. Slip it on the cross shaft. On the bottom-right, let’s place a 2 by 2 brick with Technic pin. On the bottom-left, let’s set down a 1 by 4 Technic brick. Place the friction pin in the center hole. Let’s set the motorized actuator assembly in these slots. before pressing the assembly down, let’s make sure that our bearing plate is towards this wall. This is very critical. Press the two bricks down. Make sure that this is sitting
on top of this support. We’re good! Let’s begin the construction of the garage door with an 8 by 8 plate. Take eight 1 by 8 flat tiles. Cover the entire 8 by 8 plate. If you choose, you can add a design to the garage door. Let’s set this off to the side. Take two 6 by 8 plates, and take 12 1 by 8 flat tiles. Let’s set six on one of the panels. These panels will be covered
completely with 1 by 8 flat tiles. Let’s take the remaining six, and place them on the other panel. Let’s flip the panels over. Place the 8 by 8 assembly in the middle and the two 6 by 8 assemblies on the left and right-hand sides. Let’s set down two 1 by 10 plates on the bottom followed by one 1 by 10 plate on the top. Let’s set down a 1 by 8 plate
on the left-hand side where we have a two stud opening. That’s left open to attach the garage door opener. Let’s take two 2 by 2 plates with single bearing, Skip one stud from the left and two from the top. Place the 2 by 2 plates with
bearing down like so. Let’s take two more 2 by 2 plates with bearing. Place them on the right. Let’s construct the left hinge
with two friction pins that have a cross shaft and a 3 by 3 Technic lever. Place the cross shafts inside the slots. Now take a 3 by 3 Technic
half beam with a quarter ellipse. Place it on top like so where the shafts do go through. We can set this assembly on the left inside the bearing plates. Let’s make another for the right with another 3 by 3 Technic lever and two friction pins with cross shafts. Finally a 3 by 3 half beam with quarter ellipse. Place this assembly on the right-hand side. Now let’s take two Technic pins that have a cross shaft Let’s place this one on the right and this one on the left. Let’s take a 1 by 2 Technic brick and a 1 by 2 plate. Place the plate on top of the brick. Set it on the Technic pin on the left-hand side. Let’s do the same for the right with another 1 by 2 Technic brick and a 1 by 2 plate. Now we have a nice garage door assembly. Now let’s attach the garage door. Let’s set the Technic bricks on top of these 1 by 2 plates. A little adjustment is needed to line everything up. Let’s take the bearing plate and attach it to the far left of the door. Let’s proceed with the fifth row starting with two 2 by 2 bricks. Place one on the left-hand side of the door and one on the right-hand side of the door. Let’s set down a 1 by 8 brick on the left. Set another 1 by 8 brick on that side. On the back, let’s take a 1 by 1 brick with one knob. Place it on the right-hand side of the door. Now place a 1 by 3 brick right next to the door opening followed by a 1 by 2 brick. Place a 2 by 2 slope on top of the brick with Technic pin. Set down a 1 by 8 brick to lock those joints together. Another 2 by 2 slope. On this side, place a 1 by 6 brick. Take a 1 by 8 brick Place it right next to the 1 by 6 brick followed by a 1 by 10 brick to finish up the fifth row. Take two 1 by 2 Technic
bricks with one hole. Place one on the left and one on the right. Take two small Technic pins. Place them inside the Technic bricks. Thee are going to be used
to attach the outdoor lights. Let’s set down a 2 by 4 brick on this side of the door. A 1 by 2 brick followed by a 1 by 3 brick. Skip the eight studs. Place a 1 by 6 brick followed by a 1 by 2 by 2 corner brick to lock in this joint. Now let’s place a 1 by 10 brick to lock in this section followed by a 1 by 8 brick. Let’s place this 1 by 10 brick right here. Let’s take a 1 by 4 brick. Place it on this side of the actuator assembly. Take another 1 by 4 brick. Place it on the bottom followed by a 4 by 4 plate to lock everything together. Let’s place three 1 by 4 flat tiles on the upper portion of the 4 by 4 plate to finish off the studs. Let’s proceed with another 1 by 10 brick. Finally a 2 by 4 brick to lock this area together. Take a 1 by 4 by 6 frame and a door that will fit
inside of a 1 by 4 by 6 frame. Set the door inside the frame and add a stud for the doorknob. Now place a 1 by 4 plate
on top of the door frame. Let’s place the door in this opening. Take a 1 by 4 by 3 frame and a piece of glass that
will fit inside the frame. Place it like so, and set it inside the
opening for the window. Let’s make another. Take another 1 by 4 by 3 frame and a piece of glass. Assemble the pieces together, and set it inside the opening. Let’s start the last row of bricks with a 2 by 3 brick. Place it on this side. Next take a 2 by 2 slope. Place it in this area. A 1 by 8 brick, a 1 by 10 brick to lock the windows together, and a 1 by 3 brick. Let’s take two 1 by 6 bricks. Place one right above the door and one on the left side of the door. Now take a 1 by 4 brick with arch. Place the wire in this area, and slip the arch over the wire making sure not to pinch the wire. Let’s finish up the back side with a 1 by 6 brick. Place a 1 by 4 brick on the right, a 2 by 2 brick right by the actuator, a 1 by 3 brick, a 1 by 4 brick, a 2 by 4 slope right above the support assembly, a 1 by 4 brick, a 2 by 2 slope, and a 2 by 3 brick to finish up the last row of bricks. Let’s finish off the bricks with flat tiles starting with two 1 by 2 flat tiles. Place these two on the left-hand
side of the door like so. Now take three 1 by 8 flat tiles. Place them along the
left-hand side of the wall. Grab four 1 by 6 flat tiles. Place them along the back. Set down a 1 by 2 flat tile on top of the 2 by 2 brick. Place three 1 by 8 flat tiles along the right wall. Finally, two 1 by 2 flat tiles in the remaining area. Let’s assemble the lights for the garage. Start with a tap and a transparent 1 by 1 round brick. Place the brick on the tap. Set it on the Technic pin. Let’s make another one
for the right-hand side. Take another tap and another transparent 1 by 1 round brick. Then set it on the Technic pin. Finally let’s make one more to put beside the side door. Take another tap and a 1 by 1 transparent round brick. Place it on the brick with knob. Let’s connect the battery box to the back wall. First, let’s add our power connector, and place it on the middle slots. It will snap on the bricks with Technic pin. Now for the wiring, let’s just tuck it between the motor and the actuator. If everything goes well, we should have a functioning garage door opener. Let’s slide the switch to the right. You can hear the clutch gear taking on the extra torque. So you want to time this just right. Sliding the switch to the left does close the door. Really clever design. Let’s construct the roof for the Two-Car Garage starting with two 4 by 10 plates. Let’s place two 1 by 8 bricks on the plates where the bricks are hanging over two studs. Now, take two more 4 by 10 plates. Tuck them right underneath the 1 by 8 bricks. Now let’s grab two 1 by 6 bricks. Place them right next to the 1 by 8 bricks. Take two more 4 by 10 plates. Set them on the bottom of the assemblies, and lock them together
with two 1 by 8 bricks. Take two 3 by 3 double slopes. Place them on the top corners where the top of the slopes are facing inward. Let’s set down six 3 by 4 slopes on the left assembly. These will have to be pressed
down firm onto the plates. Take six more 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on the right assembly. You really have to press
these down on the plates! Let’s finish up the two bottom corners with two more 3 by 3 double slopes. Let’s construct two more sides starting with two 4 by 6 plates and two 1 by 6 bricks. Place the 1 by 6 bricks on one side of the 4 by 6 plates. Take two 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on one of the assemblies where we have a one stud hanging over. Take two more 3 by 4 roof slopes. Place them on the other assembly. Take two 4 by 8 plates. Slip them right underneath the slopes. Take two more 4 by 8 plates. Slip them on the other side underneath the slopes. Now take two 1 by 8 bricks. Skip one stud. Place them on the end of the 4 by 8 plates. The same goes for the other side. Two more 1 by 8 bricks. Place them on the ends. Let’s place four 3 by 4 slopes in the remaining areas on the left assembly. Remember to press down firm on the slopes. So they will lock into the plates. Let’s place four more slopes on the right assembly. Let’s lock the four corners together. Let’s lock in the top-left and the bottom-left. Same goes for the top and bottom-right. Let’s construct the trusses for the roof starting with a 1 by 10 brick and a 1 by 8 brick. Place the 1 by 8 brick on top of the 1 by 10 brick where there are two studs hanging over. Place another 1 by 10 brick right underneath the 1 by 8 brick. Let’s set down a 1 by 4 brick right next to the 1 by 8 brick. Place another 1 by 8 brick right on top of the previous
1 by 4 and 1 by 8 bricks. Finally set down a 2 by 4
brick right in the center. Let’s lay the assembly on the side. Take two 1 by 3 inverted slopes. Place them on the ends on the bottom. Now we have one truss assembly. Let’s make another assembly. It is the same as the first. So take another 1 by 10 brick and another 1 by 8 brick. Place the 1 by 10 underneath the 1 by 8, and proceed like the first. Let’s grab two more 1 by 3 inverted slopes. Place the on the bottom on the ends. Let’s set the trusses in the 1 by 1 openings. They should just fall in place. Now how the 2 by 4 brick is facing outward. Take two 2 by 3 slopes. Place one on the top-left and one on the top-right. Take six 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on the left-hand side. You do have to press
these down firm as well. The slopes will lock the trusses in place. Take six more 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on the right-hand side. It’s starting to look more like a roof. Now grab five 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on the top where they are facing that way. Take five more 3 by 4 slopes. Place them on the bottom. Let’s build the end supports of the roof starting with a 1 by 10 brick. Skip four studs from the left. Place it on top of the slopes. Let’s take another 1 by 10 brick, and place it on the top. Now let’s finish up the other side
with a couple of 1 by 4 bricks, Take two 1 by 4 bricks. Skip two studs. Set this one down on the right. Place this one on the left. The same for the top end. So take two more 1 by 4 bricks, and place them as shown. Take a 1 by 2 by 2/3 frame with arch and a piece of lattice that fits inside the frame. Set it inside like so. Place it in the opening. Let’s make another for the top with another 1 by 2 by 2/3 frame and a piece of lattice. Let’s wrap around the top of the lattice with two 1 by 4 by 2 bricks with arch. Take two 1 by 1 bricks. Place them on both sides of the window followed by two more 1 by 1 bricks for the other window. Let’s add some cross
supports for our trusses. Take three 1 by 8 bricks. Place them in the areas. Grab three more 1 by 8 bricks. Place them on the right-hand side. Take three more 1 by 8 bricks. Place them on the left. Let’s do the other side of the roof the same as the previous starting with three more 1 by 8 bricks. Place them in the middle. Place three more 1 by 8 bricks on the left followed by three 1 by 8 bricks on the right. For the top, grab two 1 by 16 bricks. Set them on top of the 2 by 4 bricks where they are on the center. Take two 1 by 2 bricks. Place them on the top and two on the bottom. This will give added support for the roof slopes. Now let’s roof this sucker! Let’s start on the end where
we have the 2 by 3 slope. Let’s place a 3 by 4 slope right above the 2 by 3, and we will proceed to the other end. These two areas are critical. We will have to deal with those in a bit. On the right, let’s set down a 2 by 3 slope. Now on the side where we have the 2 by 3 slope, let’s place down a 3 by 4 slope. Our cross supports are helping out. This area is a bit critical. This tile may end up falling inside. I’m going to place my hand underneath and give it some support. So I can lock down that tile. This one may cave in as well. The risky part is done. Now let’s set a 2 by 3 on this end. Let’s place another 3 by 4 in this corner, and support the 2 by 3 with our fingers. Sometimes they won’t line up all the way. So you have to persuade it a bit. So basically we’re going back and forth. Working with 3 by 4 slopes
is a bit of a challenge. Another 2 by 3 slope. We’ll set another 3 by 4
on top of the 2 by 3. We’re almost done with this side of the roof. That one didn’t want to go down. Another 2 by 3. We’ll add our last
3 by 4 row on this side. Sometimes you have to
press firm on these slopes. And our last 2 by 3 for this side. This side is the same as the previous. So let’s begin starting with this corner and work back and forth. Take a 2 by 2 ridge slope. Place it on the right-hand side on top of the 3 by 4 slopes. Proceed with six 2 by 4 ridge slopes. This will finish off the top. If you don’t have the 2 by 4 slopes, you can finish it off with flat tiles. Let’s support these two 2 by 3 tiles with a finger, and set down our last 2 by 4 slope. We have a nice heavy duty roof assembly. Now on the bottom, we need to attach
some 1 by 2 by 2 corner plates to keep the roof locked into the garage. So let’s start on the top-right. Drop down two studs,
and set our first. On the top-left, we’re going to go in two studs from the top and two studs from the left. The same for the bottom. So with the bottom-left, come in two studs from the left and two studs from the bottom. And on the bottom-right, two studs from the bottom. This completes the roof assembly. Setting the roof on top of the
Two-Car Garage is simple. Note the orientation of the corner plates. It should hook around the walls. Very sturdy. We even have access for the switch. It is a nice self-contained build. Now let’s test out the door. Hopefully it still works. Sure does! Now let’s close it. Nice indeed. This design can be expanded or integrated into an existing Lego garage or a Lego house. I hope this tutorial helped everyone out. Jay the Surfer seems to like it. Thank you for watching!

  4. can you please help me with a Lego project i am trying to accomplish I am trying to build a custom animal shelter and I am using Lego friends parts can you give me ideas please

  5. l love your all creations and now I want you to make me a space ship with simple parts please please please please please and see my videos iam sure you will be inspired by my creations

  6. JAYSTEPHER. for the electric garage door opener were did you get the bearing plate for the actuator assembly I have looked in ebay amazon and lego.com and couldn't find it.would you please tell me were I can get it from. and were did you get the 66 flat tiles.

  7. would you ever consider selling one? I have a 5 year old son who has autism and he is obsessed with garage doors. He watches this video over and over and over.
