How a corner for a lounge so you have a place to relax between working on the rig in the winter. Also cable TV line. Tool bench of course.

If you're going to have an access to dump tanks inside you may as well also go with a min. of a 1/2 bath and plumb everything to a tank with appropriate size field.

I also have a garage to put my RV in just in case we have to stay in the winter. It has a 6" reinforced with rebar and fiberglass in concrete. Have water and electricity with sewer. The building is 20x50 with a 14 high door. My lights are mounted on the side top and bottom all LEDs big enough to extend my sides. Did most my self and friends. It's hooked to my car garage and heated with a pellet stove. It works great.

I would not use overhead doors. If they are open, you will not have access to the roof. Use a commercial roll-up. It will not lower your clearance. I use 14x14 doors in my toy shop

Not only that, but the overhead doors will also block a lot of ceiling lights. Just me, but I'd rather have one really big door than 2 smaller doors.

Maybe I'll post pictures of ours on here at some point. 6000 square feet, 7 garage doors (2 are 12x14 for RV's), apartment (complete with AC, washer/dryer kitchenette, full bath and shower), welding shop, wood shop, 50/30/20 plus sewer and on the list goes. Main building is 40x60, 18' at the eves, and the shop extends back and sideways to complete the rest. Personally, I wouldn't go any lower than the 18' at the eves. Reason? Standing on top of a motorhome or fifth wheel while inside. Nothing like being able to wash your rig indoors when it's too hot, or cold.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

X2 on the roll up doors like wbdavey mentioned. Overheads block light and take up too much room.

As always, this crew never disappoints with the willingness to share your finest tips, learnings, and ideas. You are also good at spending my money :-). I wish I could include everyone of the ideas but I am definitely employing several. If any of you have photos to share, they would be great for visual inspiration.
