    I would have considered using cathedral trusses so as to create a taller ceiling
    with the same wall height. One 14' Door to allow Class A RV parking (for whom
    ever buys your place "someday".
    I'm just saying that the 14' Door Higher Ceiling makes shop more versatile.

    Good point, I have 15' ceiling with a 20 x 14' door in each shop and a 40' diesel pusher fits with room to spare.
    Not sure if it would on a 12 footer??
    Even my racecar trailer is almost 12 foot tall with the A/C unit.

    Check your building code for woodstoves in a garage if you plan on bringing that up while building it. Where i live you cant put a woodstove in anything you can get a car in.
    Might need to install that after all the inspectors go bye-bye.

    Dumbass that had my shop built had attic trusses used to create a unneccesary upstairs room
    which I do have FULL of Camaro parts.
    My previous owner than buys Class A RV and cant get under 12 foot Door
    As I said above Cathedral Trusses (what else are they called) would have allowed a 14 Ft
    Door in Gable end and higher vehicle.
    With the cathedral trusses (instead af attic) my shop could have had a higher outside
    wall with a lower overall (less pitch) roofline

    These pics were as I bought in 2012, Ive since eliminated side door and moved
    "attic" stairway against side wall.

    Anybody building/owning a large shop garage should know about
