Cool Re: need advice on garage size

It's NEVER big enough !!!!!!! I just built mine 32' wide ad 48' deep, and the boat ( 38' Scarab ) filled one side quick and the rest filled up just as fast. Already need more space

Not really close to being big enough! You have to do as big as you can do...it is more important than the house!

100x200 ought to do it. Just be sure you leave room for expansion.

40x60 is a great size to build.

Big is Good, Bigger is Better.
In Fl you may want to have a strorage shed for the boat. Taxes on a shed might be cheaper. Sometimes, I don't like all my eggs in one basket, as fire would wipe out everything and it is harder to heat and cool.

Much of that depends on your lot size and access and womans input. Just make sure you make it really big. Incremental square footage is cheap. Adding on is expensive.

My 38' would actually fit in an 8' door, but I put 9' doors for plenty of clearance.It can also depend on the trailer how high it sits.I would go a min. 9 foot.

Go as big as you can afford or the law will allow. I've never built one that was big enough yet
