I like to keep in mind that big guy/gal who will come to do any repairs/replacements and make certain they can work comfortably & safely....bending, kneeling, elbows out when working a rachet etc.

I had someone tell me an access way I made in a basement into a crawlspace was too big - first and only time I have had ever heard that. When you are working on something you don't want any reasons not to - tight spaces are one of them.
