At the bottom of the below page are some reversing motor setups that use limit switches and diodes that allow for motor stop/reversing.

I am basically walking I to this blindfolded and looking to find someone willing to walk me through this what I'm creating is a chicken coop door which opens vertically with a small geared motor and I want to control it with my raspberry pi via its USB port. So what I'm looking for is a stackable solution based on a arduino USB board with limit switches for open and close.

Any help will be grately apreciated.
