Well, I don't know of any sites off hand, but a google search should find you about a million.....lol

Sometimes the lumber yards,(sutherlands,for sure),will have "kits".....plans included.....

A few thoughts though.......some of the "kits" use a 4x8 masonite siding....with out any sheating behind.....cheaper......but a bad idea.

Also, You will really want at least 9ft ceiling.......

Anyway you can get wider than 23??.....thats a little tight with 2 cars.......

If you don't go the "kit" route......just about any town of any size will have a place that builds trusses.....they will custom build them to your size....

I see from your profile that you live in Oregon......I once did a job in Beverton......so I can say.......Be sure to have all the proper permits and inspections........they have some odd codes and the people who inforce them can be a real pain.....lol

Good Luck,

Well, I don't know about that Joe........Because of your low ceiling you got 10 acres and a new 50x100 building.

I'm thinking about lowering my ceiling and seeing if this works for me......LOL

Good Luck,

Snowman,
Ive checked the lumberyard etc around this area and all you get "well, we used to but dont bother anymore". Must be a small country town attitude or something. 23 ft isnt tight when the two cars are only 5ft wide (MGBs are all that big) but can probably extend a bit wider - just havent measured the full area yet.
