54x80x20. 24x18 and 12x18 doors on one end. Mezzanine above workbench with bathroom, office, kitchenette, laundry room. U-drain the full length at 12ft door. Overhead hot water pressure washer. In floor heat, storage room and closet under stairs.

Ideally, bigger in every aspect. 50ft bifold opposite end of other OH doors. 10x10 door at welder. 22ft or 24ft walls. 110ft long so we could split Super Bs inside. But 90ft would at least let us get it in and open the hood. And we have a very short wheelbase semi.

Go higher so you can at least put a 18’ door in and do more than one door.
Built 48x92x18 in 03/04, with a 16x24 oh door. I could sneak the combines in with hopper toppers on then. But this fall I finally poured my pad outside the oh door and now the bubble auger won’t fit inside the 16’ high opening. The pad changed the angle of approach just enough to mess with it.
Plus the whole time that the pad was being prepped and poured plus waiting for the cure time, I couldn’t get anything into my shop because of the 1 door. At least put a 12x12 or something so you can sneak a pickup, Skid steer, sleds or whatever, without opening the big door. Have a 8x16 office and bathroom in one corner with storage And air compressor up top. Wished i would’ve put that as a lean to. Don’t put bathroom access through office. Drags unnecessary dirt and whatever else into that area.
We can sneak super b in and open the hood with some room to spare. Not much tho

I have a 40'x50'x14' with lean-to on each side. I don't have time to spend all winter in the shop but it works for putting in a couple of items when I need to. I wish the ceiling was higher to work on top of the combine and such, and sometimes I wish it was longer so I could fit the whole semi in, but not very often.

No point in building a huge shop unless you have the labor to utilize it. Around here winter is for hauling grain. I can work on the drill in spring when the roads are soft.
Grainline, LutzSK and kevlar like this.

We have a 60x100 shop with 2 30x20 doors and looking at building another that's 70x100 for semis and toys you never seem to build a shop big enough and always need more room

Go 20ft tall for an 18ft door, build it as wide as affordable and you can easily add length at a later time.

As a farmer, you learn quick: “You don’t get anything that you don’t work hard for”

We built the same size shop but we put two doors in a 22x16 for the big door in the end and a 12x12 in the side .. I wish we would have put a bigger big door in tho.. the 16 foot door seems tall enough I can get everything we have in no problem.. we seem to use the small side door way more than the big one .. we also put 3 man doors in and a sea can on the one side so we can keep all the junk out of the shop .. I would highly recommend a the side door .. oh and don't cheap out on electrical

If doing a 40x60 might be worth looking at making it 60’ wide, like Jason suggests here. Place it in the yard where you could ad length.

Our shop is 60 x 120 x 20. Two 24' overhead doors with sliding centre post. We put in floor heat in and i would recommend it. I would definitely go 20' walls so you can have an 18' door.

I think i would go a little taller, not for just the door size but fans and lights. Check with your supplier , maybe you did but ask what is the cheapest width to build per foot. You mught be able to go wider for no cost, prairie steel told me today 40ft width is more per sqft than wider ones.
Put a air compressor switch at the door and hook a plugin to turn on with the lights.( radio)

How do the guys with the swinging post overhead doors like them?
