Planning Garage overall size and Door height
I will be adding an attached garage to our ranch house this summer and wanted to get some input on how big overall to make the footprint and talk about door height.
We are considering a single story, 28'wide x 30'deep two car, with roughly a 90" height set of doors. I'd like to get my Pathfinder with kayak racks into the garage without removing the racks.
The gable end will be in line with the ranch house itself. Car entry will be along the non-gable side.
How high would the non gable walls need to be in order to accomodate the extra door height?
Are there standard openings for garage doors, height and width?
We plan to use the upper space for storage, so will place a large window or hayloft type door in the gable end. With a 5:12 pitch roof line, matching the house, it looks like the storage area ridge height will be about 6 feet. Any thoughts on how to get that a little higher without changing pitch?
Thanks in advance for any input.
