I'm biting the bulllet and finalizing my garage plans. The door I was currently planning on is 18'wide x 9' high, also considering a 10' high, but +$$. I am going with a 21.5' deep x 26' wide building (room for a workbench!
) I figure the 18' width will allow me to get the truck in easier once the trailer is wintered in the garage (more commonly, people are using 16'w door on a 2 car garage)
is 8' high and I would like to install a MaxxFan or similar vent fan unit, the MaxxFan is 5" high. Now in theory, 8'-5" should be okay to clear a 9' door, but it could be close. The ground seems level from the alley to where the garage will be built.
Does anyone have any other items I should be considering before deciding on the final height of the door? I'm not worried about resale value, so I don't need a really large height for someone to put a bulgemobile in in the future.
I suppose another way to go would be two single overhead doors - one 8'w x 7' or 8'h for truck and one 10'w x 9/10' high for trailer, but I thought it might be easier to back the trailer in with the wider door??
Thoughts?? Thanks for putting up with another one of my looong posts
