    I put radiant floors in mine as well, that way the boat is nice and toasty on blackmouth days and the anchor rope is never frozen from the day before.
    Stick built is only more expensive if ZERO interior is desired.... as in no wall sheething of any sort and also no insulation. If it's in the budget I really recommend it as a contractor who's built a lot of them. But let's face it, having the boat under any cover is a blessing!

    14'6" is the correct door heighth to bring in 14" tall vehicles. Unless your garage door clears the header.

    You can still do insulation and interior walls on tin, but still not as niceas stick.

    Automatic door and gate in Everett makes and installs aluminum roll up doors. It has a thin layer of insulation on the I. Mine is a 12'W X 14'T chain drive. Supposedly you can replace sections of the door if you screw up and damage it.

    At my old place of work they use a blue fabric door. Cost was crazy. As Charlie said the regular garage door cuts into your overhead space with tracks that are permanently installed.

    Two forums that help with ideas are The Shop Floor Talk and The Garage Journal. Now is the time to plan all of nice to have items as well as the must haves. Such as a urinal and sink with hot water to wash your paws before going into the house.

    Alright, thanks for all the thoughts! Current plan is to go with stick built, 38'x24', 14'x14' rollup door. HOA says it has to "kinda" match the house so that adds a few dollars and eliminates tin. Last shop I had in Montana only had a 10' wide door and that was a little nerve wracking backing into in the dark!

    My doorways are 12' x 14't. Garage door slides up above the header. I used scissor trusses to get more headroom and have a loft built over the stern of the boat (the stern slides just under the loft). Makes it super easy to load and unload, not to mention climbing in and out of the boat.

    I do not have the peak height yet as I'm waiting for the detail plans. I'm using a builder recommended from a friend who works at Kingston lumber. They just had him do a shop for them. Peninsula structures is the company and his name is Kelly. The copy of the drawing in my post looks a bit stretched!

    I'm getting close. To many jobs to focus on my own solely but it's getting there.
