I went with a 18' wide X 30' deep 10'high , park the AS tight on right hand side and park the F250 tight on the left side, this allows enough room to open the AS door. It is tight but it works, I beleive with the pitch of the roof a 8' tall side wall would also work without issue.

Thanks, and you are correct. However, I do have the canoe loaded on the TV.

I find that 6-8 Feet all around lets me work on it nicely, 4 Ft above tallest roof bump.
add sides to stop sun burn or wind driven hail.

Not sure where you are located but be sure that it is rated for the snow load for your area. I saw several this spring here in Michigan that were collapsed from the winters fury.

What you want is a "pre-engineered" building (maybe one without walls, but it's still a building), so check the Yellow Pages for suppliers in your area, and ask them for references in your area, so you can go check out other carports/garages they've supplied. If you just buy a kit that has not been designed for wind and snow loads in your area, you're really not saving money. That phrase "in your area" seems to be a recurring theme, but it's a valid one. Also, be prepared to put down an adequate foundation to support it; resistance to uplift forces from wind depends in part on how the building is fastened to the ground. One reason for going with a pre-engineered building is that you can get them to design the right foundation as well.

Side note, wall and roof panels tend to be standardized at 3 feet wide, so if the dimensions work out to an even multiple of 3 feet it will cost less than if you go with other sizes where some panels might have to be cut lengthwise to fit.
