For the record, my 32 is 93" high so the 8' isn't out of the question, being a home builder myself, my only hang up on a 10' high garage doors on a attached garage is the curb appeal, last thing you want is a garage with alittle house attached, I know a garage is the utmost importance for us, but over welming a custom build home with huge doors might be something to reconsider, do you have room for a detached garage for the boat?

If curb appeal is the issue, you can make a fold down section to replicate the look of an 8' door on the outside. I saw it on a custom home and you couldn't tell it was covering a 12' plus opening. Not sure how it was opened

Default Door height

Our 353 sitting on a triple axle trailer with 16 inch wheels is exactly 9 feet from ground to top of windshield. When we built our present house, we were able to get approval from the HOA for a 20 wide by 10 high garage door. Works great.

True that, I just expanded from 60x60 to 60x90 and still I don't have room for a bus.

Our lot is 1.3 so we are allowed one additional building. In the future I'll build something to accommodate a fifth wheel with a mother in law apartment. You're a builder so you know doing the detached makes it more pricey due to not sharing walls with the house, separate slab, electrical, etc. no baller status here just maximizing what I can afford at this point. The house is 3000 sf and the garage is 1300. Appreciate the feedback.
