Earl E..... Keep us posted with pics. Everyone is always looking for new ideas for a new garage or looking for ideas for an existing garage. One thing I would do if I were you and I've done it on my last two garages is build at least a 6' overhang on the front. Not only will you be able to keep your garage door open when it is raining it also gives you about 7' extra feet of dry space if you are doing something where you can't pull the vehicle all the way in. On mine it give me enough space to pull under when the weather is cold to keep the frost off of the windshield. You can't go wrong with an overhang. Get those pics posted. One other thing also...Do not put 2 single garage doors in. I put the standard 9' wide doors in and barely can get my car trailer in. 3" on each side clearance and a dually truck comes awful close to not fitting.
