I built a 65' L 24' W by 16' H with 14' high doors on both ends for drive through with a 24' x65' x12' H lean on the side for extra storage I did the drive through at the time because I had a 5 th wheel and that's what it required to fit but now having the class a I'm glad I did it that way so I can leave the toad hooked and just pull through and be ready for next trip ...... Sorry no pics yet try to get some up later

I am also enjoying following this topic as I am planning on building an RV garage next Spring. I have been searching the internet for building plans but finding very few. My question is; did you hire an architect to draw up the plans? I have to have plans to get the County building permit. I found one company that has plans for sale over the internet, sdscad.com, does anyone have any information about this company? They have plans for one that is 30 X 48 X 14. the plan number is G355. I would post a picture but can't figure out how to do it. Thanks

My plans were drawn up by the builder after I told them what I wanted.

I built mine myself. I had to produce stamped drawings for the trusses. From there the permit and inspection process went smoothly.

18'w x 51'l x 14'h(@peak). Plenty of room to open slides & we can raise the TV antenna. Packed gravel base. The closed end faces west. 30A outlet on adjacent building. Out in the boondocks so no permits necessary. Approx $5k assembled.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

The garage was built to match our house it has dormers on it too.

Right now they are adding to the back of it another 14 X 28 to make my husbands garage 44 X 30. I told him he didn't build it big enough, now he will have a room for his shelving instead of taking up almost half his garage.

So now we have garage doors on 3 sides so it should be really useful, just need to get our electric in and some heat for his side. His garage has insulated sides and a metal liner, we left the insulation out of the ceiling till he gets it wired, so he can heat it easily when he works out there in the winter. The motorhome side only has a vapor barrier in the top and will have 2 50 amp plugs one on each wall. We had it cut down 6 inches and put fabric and white rock in the driveway to support the motorhome. We put in a circle drive. He wanted to make sure everything would support a 30000 pound motorhome and it does, no issue.

I went to a pole barn builder and told him what I wanted. There are no supports in the center of the building being it's all open space, I had the double trusses engineered for an 60lb (per square foot) load. We live in a snow belt. Because we also live in the boonies there are no building requirements.

I also would not want to, nor do I know how to, go about getting any kind of a permit. Get ready to build something, we just tell them what we want, and let them build it. And we like it that way.

Everybody's garages, barns, etc. look great.

Those going to be windows/ventilation across the top, or are the walls not finished?

Ventilation is what I'm trying to figure out on an enclosed garage. Maybe 3-4 screened windows down each side?
