Installing a garage door on a shop

hi there! new here......hoping that someone can help me out. I am looking to install a garage door onto a shop which does not have an exisitng opening. Would I have to install a beam? How much do you think it would cost to take out a wall, install a beam, and install a garage door in the opening?

It definitely needs a header/beam over the doorway. Need a pic or more info to tell exactly what is needed. But why a garage door, for moving large projects in/out?? They tend to be cold/drafty, even when the insulated type are installed. If you are handy, it can be a DIY job. Pick up a book at home stores on framing.
