I normally use 24"x30"

I normally use 24"x30" interior closet space with the door to the closet on the 30" wall.  It leaves room for a 24"x24" drain pan and a big enough door to get everything in.

The last one I drew had an

The last one I drew had an interior measuremnt of 32.5" x 32.5".  It is larger than required, but I wanted to fit a 2'0 door.  I do my best to never locate a gas water heater within living space b/c of the fresh air requirements.  Some homeowners insist on it though.
