|Hi everyone !!
|I know this isn't really a woodworking question but after reading some of
|the posts I know I can get an answer.
|Ok--now for the stupid question--I'm planning on building a pole building
|garage and I need to know what the finished dimensions would be for the
|opening for a 9 X 7 garage door--also what is the normal wall height for a
|pole garage??--just wanting to get an idea so that I can do some figuring
|while it is still cold and wet outside LOL
Why don't you contact dealers for data sheets? They can give you
dimensions, attachment and trim requirements, clearances required,
Be sure to allow enough overhead space for an opener if you intend to
Also, IMHO your sizing is too small. When you trade in your Geo Metro
for a 4x4 Ford Excursion what are you going to do?
I built my two-car garage 30' wide and 28' deep with a 10' high clear
span ceiling and two 12' wide x 8' high doors. With the crap that
accumulates I still can't open the doors on my Camaro all the way.
Now that I'm doing WW in it I wish it was 40' deep but unfortunately I
had a septic tank in the way.
Decide how big you want it then double that number.
