Accessing drawings brings up the following selection window:

And these are examples of the drawings:

Note that the 12'x7'overhead door is positioned to the inside faces of the posts.

The siding is interesting regarding opeings. In the example above you can see how the siding routine works. The walk door is positioned such that no piece of siding is fully occluded. The first window, however, is, and you can see how the siding layout doesn't include any more material than is required. In the overhead door area there are 3x pieces of material cut to 1'3" above the door. On the door sides note that you see the entire panels and they seem to cover part of the opening. This lets you know that you will have to cut to fit. On the other hand you really can't order the pieces cut quite like that.

In this example note that the Center At Peak siding application is used to yield a symmetrical layout. You can clearly see that the outermost panels are clearly extended beyond the building edge. Yes, one may choose to lay out the panels for minimum waste, left to right or center panel at peak, but some of those methods will yield odd sizes and odd cuts. Difficult to apply cleanly and reliably. Symmetry results in a pleasing layout to the eye, simpler application, and fewer distinct sizes to have to deal with. However, the method used to apply the panels is ultimately up to you - left to right, center panel at peak or center seam at peak.

Framing is shown separately from the outer wall drawing; this makes it clearer what is going on (less busy.) The green vert lines are centerline positions of the posts.

The red marker denotes the edge of the roof.

Note 1 points to the fascia lumber placement at the edge. Note 2 shows the measurement of the roof plane and the purlin position markers are relative to the ridgeline along this measurement.
