You might want to see if a Wayne Dalton IDrive would work. I had 3 installed by WD and the price including installation was $400. They fit above the door instead of in the middle of the ceiling and turn the torsion spring to open the door.

Yes, I have two installed on my garage. You probably won't find any at the big box hardware stores, though. You will have to get it from a garage door company. Mine are Liftmaster, but I would think that other brands are available too.
I haven't been hearing too many good things about the i-Drive. If you decide to go that route, do your homework before you buy. Other companies make similar systems too.
