I agree, in a perfect world I would have a walkway around both sides.

RE height, you need about 11 1/2 ft.
If you guys were like me it would not matter how far away the wall was. I have plenty of room to walk around mine or I would have is I did not lean all the extra shit I have in my barn against the walls by the hoist. So now I just stumble over that instead of having to walk around the post.
