      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

how much to build a garage?

Recommended Posts

I am considering a 24 x 24 garage with loft/living space above with cement flooring at cabin on Lake Miltona.

Any ideas on cost? could you hook up to water/septic for additional living area.

Like more space and storage for 2 boats in winter and 2 atvs in summer.

Thanks

Fletcher.....this is one of those deals of.....You can spend as much as ya want. I'd look at the packages the big box stores offer then, at least double it, if ya wanna go as far with this project as you mentioned.

Not sure of cost, but I would recommend a 28' deep garage. I have that at home and cabin, and wish I would have gone 32' wink

It will be a nice garage with the room over it though!

My wifes step dad built one a couple years ago. He did the contracting and got fair deals on all the labor. His garage is about 800sq ft with a 10/12 with living space above. He claims he put about $40K into it.

A stick frame constructed garage is nice but it's a lot cheaper to go with a pole building. The new house is on 3.7 acres and will allow a 2K sq ft pole building which I plan to build in the next year or two.

Some materials are very low while other materials are very high. For example blacktop and shingles are very high right now. Raw lumber such at 2x4's, 2x6's and OSB are cheap. Right now most subs are slow so you would be able to find good workers for cheap.

I'd say go as big as you can build because you can never have too much space.

Good luck!

I would say easily 40K+ for all that.

When we built our house, we put up a 30 x 33' shop with 2x6 walls, vinyl siding, shingled rooof and poured floor with 9 generic lights and outlets. This ran 25K and I had to do the insulating and sheet rocking after the fact back in 05'.

My 28 x 40 pole barn,steel siding & roof with cement floors, two garage doors, 1 double walk-in door, 1 single door and 4 slider windows cost about 20K

I thought this would have been big enough but.... I wish I would have gone 30 x 80

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
