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

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
