I know, this a firarms forum damnit. But everyone here seems to know something about do-it-yourself stuff, so i thought i'd ask. Has anyone here ever built a garage? I'm going to start drafting up my plans today to submit to the zoning/planing board this week and I have everything i need except the rough opening dimensions of my garage doors. I went online and looked for like an hour, but could'nt find any. I'm going to use either H=7' x 8', or 8' x 8' doors. Does the door fall behing the opening? I never really paid much attention before. Or does the door squeese inside the opening? Any help is appreciated.
A sectional door fits behind the opening. By the way, go with the 7 foot height, that is standard and an 8 foot will cost considerably more.
