OK. You realize you can't put an 8 foot wide door in an 8 foot wide structure?

Figured 8' 7" finished front...is that good enough? I figured 3" of wood for each side to mount it to and 5/8" hardy for finished exterior...

For a standard 8 foot door you will need a minimum of 8 and a half feet on the inside, and that is pushing it to an extreme.

Well at least 8" of that front is the other 2 walls on each side.

So you are saying that a 3" of meat on each side of the door to mount it to is not enough?

It will take exactly that much. What I'm saying is if your exterior dimension is 8 feet, depending on your siding, your opening (without a wall at all) is only about 7 feet 4 inches. Interior stud to interior stud.

First, thanks for the advice. So, If I use 3" or so of lumber on both sides to mount the door on that should be enough? Basically I will be building a building with a minimum front area (the door dimension opening of approx. 7" 11" plus six inches of framing wood) and 12' of Depth, so I figure the overall dimensions would be about 8"6" X 12" ..am I close, and would that work?

8 foot six exterior will leave you only about 7 feet 10 inches INSIDE. The door is 8 feet wide. The door, and track will be about 8 feet 6 inches on the INSIDE.

The finished framed inside dimensions that my garage door guy gave me was 7' 11" clear width and 6' 11 1/2" height, that's all he needs, that is where my math is coming from....he also told me that the door needed at least 3" of meat to mount to on each side...

The 7 foot 11 inches is your usable width after installation. The door and hardware is about 8 feet six inches wide. You need that much INSIDE. Garage door guy is correct.
