    Planning 30x40 Garage

    I am planning on building a garage at my cabin next Spring. The max size ( enclosed) is a 30x40. I plan on having two 12 foot over hangs on each side make to roof size 54x40. I require one of the over hangs to be at least 12'6" to store our Motorhome. The other overhang can be smaller in size as this will be more of a patron and storage for a few cords of firewood. I thought might be best just to keep it the same... Not sure. I have drawn a sketch with two garage doors, one would be fine. I want a entrance under the patio side overhang. The enclosed portion will be 30x40 and 12 foot walls (max allowed). I want the base of the wall to no less than 2' high block to prevent rot from the snow. I plan on having a 4 post hoist inside. I have 200 amps service in the cabin so the May pull 100 from there or if needed maybe it's own service.
    No plumbing other than a floor drain.

    This in the planning stage and open to ideas and suggestions. One issue is that this building will be set back about 20 ft from my cabin and the cabin is rustic log. I can't afford to do this in log so I think I will go t-111 and do some log like trim. I saw a garage down the road from us like this. Cabin will be in the 49659 area code, so snow is a factor.

    Thanks,

    Looks good , I wouldn't go with T-111 , just because of always a upkeep cost. I did and would go with a metal siding and roof. You can get just about any color of siding or roof that you may want . Less cost in the long run.

    Biggest mistake I made when I built our barn was to use T-111. The cost of good stain today and the labor in staining is way too much.
    Staining T-111 is like staining a sponge.

    I have similar needs (RV storage, etc...) and am looking at building a barn the same size. I've been looking more at Monitor Style barns with the thinking that the sidewalls over the two side roofs could have windows along them to allow for some natural lighting. I also don't want a single huge roof.

    So thusfar the plan is standing seam metal roof and log siding (instead of real logs). I decided I'd just run a separate 200 amp service to the barn and leave it on it's own meter. In my case that's easier than trying to run service from the house.

    I agree with this. Also the 2 large doors - one large and one small - is good. Think ahead - you might want that larger door big enough to get your motor home in to work on it / clean it in the winter.

    Thanks for the inputs, keep them coming. Staining is part of life with a log cabin, so I own sprayer. There is another log cabin about ten miles from me and they put out a vinyl sided garage.... Wife doesn't like the look, want s to stay more in the period and I have to agree. Some day I will at least log side the front. We see another cabin garage that has t-111 and vertical trim boards on some of the seams. Looks good. I gave noticed that many old barns have vertical board while the home is horizontal.

    Zoning only allows a 12ft. I am trying for a variance, but I understand from others that tough fight. I agree, I would really like to get it inside sometimes if I could. The motor height is actually 12feet 5/8 inches!
