Electric Garage Door Opener

We have original side by side garage doors (dual garage). I would like to be able to at least open one of the doors with a remote electric opener. I would like to keep the original doors. Are there any companies who specialize in garage door openers for Eichlers?

i know of one person in our neighborhood who rigged an automatic opener to move the door from side to side like originally intended. he had only 1 door hooked up to move that way (the inside slider).
another neighbor left the original door look from the outside, but completely re-built the opening mechanism so that he had 2 independently flip up opening doors.

so it can be done without ruining the look of your home.
