I don't know what kind of approach you will have to the entrance of the overhang but when I built mine it was initially 15' wide and I would park my 5th wheel under it, later I expanded it by 10 more feet. I have to pull up along the left side of the building and back it up so I could park it under the overhang on the right side of the 30' x 40' building. Since then, we have purchased a 2016 Seneca 37HJ and glad I put in the additional cover. Also use the extra cover to park the tow dolly and the pickup under. You can always find something to put under the cover to help protect it from the elements.

I will have a RV carport attached to CBS building. It will have a block wall on one side and concrete support columns on the other side with 16 feet between the wall and columns. The bottom of the tie beam will be 15 feet high.

I do not plan on ever putting the Seneca in the building but I am trying to make the shop just big enough in case I need to for some reason.

I would attach a photo of the plan but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

It's finally done, stucooed, painted, rain gutters and sun shade material on the west side. Meets all the south Florida wind codes, which only probably doubled the cost. The plans changed multiple times from conception. It took a while but it's done!

And just in time for our brutal winter cold front. It's supposed to get down to 48 degrees Saturday morning before it goes back to the 70s. Do I need to winterize? Lol

Sorry to all my more northern friends here. This is the one time a year I can brag about our weather.

Price per square foot

Mine is 20 X 60 & could be a little smaller but the extra room allows more stuff
No floor but my cost was $5400.00 in West Texas - check with several different builders & check references & read reviews ( you have to be careful when saving $$$ )
I have water, sewer and 50 amp power - so no hunting dump stations on the way home

Nice, does not look to be attached to the garage. So what's the final specs? Are you still building the new machine shop?

Roof is 44' X 22'. Bottom of tie beam is 15'6". The interior width between the columns is 16' and the columns are 12' apart, so I can open all compartments and slides. I put 70% block sunshade on the west side which keeps it shaded and cool. The bottom of the trusses are high enough to walk backwards on the RV roof and and hit my head on every other truss as I forget to duck the 4" or so.

The shop building got nixed as the building would have overwhelmed my yard. So the "Seneport" is free standing. That plus meeting the south Florida wind code added considerably to the cost.

My shop will remain in the existing 12x30 metal building.

Overall I am a happy camper with how things turned out.

Just finished my storage building, earlier this summer. I highly recommend 12 x 14 rollup and did 50' for plenty of room, front and back.
