Basement garage and fireproofing
We are in the process of designing a new house. We've been told that if we put a garage door in the unfinished basement area, it will have to be fireproofed. The area is about 32'X37'. The rear wall and part of the side wall will be studs and not cement. We have a large window at the rear of the area in case the next owner wants to change it to a game room. The basement will likely be at least 10' deep. Obviously we'll be using drywall on all studded walls. Would it be best to use drywall or a suspended ceiling in this area? Also is there another type of large double door we could use instead of a garage door? We may not put a car in the basement, but we do have a riding mower.
