Masonite or luan plywood. Either can be cut by scoring with a utility knife, and it bends very well. Cardboard can also be bent into curves if it is kind of crushed along a line so it bends, like the flaps on a box. I use the back of a scissor blade or the round end of a ballpoint pen to sort of score it without breaking the paper. To get the curved ...

Maybe something like sodium acrylate or polycarbonate (lexan) would work. Unlike acrylic sheets (plexiglass glass) the two I mentioned are less brittle and easier to fasten with screws and drilled holes. These materials can all be cut with a specialized handheld plastic cutter that looks like a razor. The cost will depend on the thickness of material, but ...

2x's laying flat as opposed to on edge are going to bend or break when weight is suspended from it over time. The longer the board the faster it will compress or fail. To remedy this problem you must add support to the existing framing members. I think the simplest way is to install additional 2 x 4's (on edge) attached against the edge of the original 2 x ...

There are a couple of options, though: Add a "Security+ 2.0" compatible receiver to the gate Depending on the actual gate used, if you can wire in a universal receiver, then you can link the Liftmaster remote with it. Would need details on the gate control ...

I assume you are wondering what size header to use for the framing and how to support that header. You should: consult your local building department they can tell you. The old rule of thumb is 1" height of header for every foot of width. With an 8 foot span you should use double studs (jack studs) on each side to support it. So - for a 8' span with 2x4 ...

Just build the platform as Chris Duffin did, make sure it is low enough so your auto's undercarriage will clear, and leave a couple channels/slots for your auto to pass through. You could make hinged lids that fold back down when the car is gone, giving you a continuous level platform surface. Keep it simple.

I had exactly this same need, and did -not- want to use outlets or an entire system for just two switches at a place I will probably not be in another year or two. I found what I was looking for at a local HW store recently turned A*E. The brand is "Heath Zenith", the model is BL-6133-WH (the last two letters are the color, in this case White) I believe. ...

Almost everything will eventually fade if left in direct sun light for years. Outside of cosmetic problems, I'd be concerned about batteries leaking or exploding. Your best bet might be to relocate the keypad to another location like the other side of the garage.
