    Default Head clearance

    Can some one tell me the minimum head clearance at an entry way?
    I have approximately 72 inches from the deck to the header below the roof panel. I know doorways need 78 inches, but haven't come across this before!

    Depends on how large their head is ...

    Watson would need a lot of head clearance.
