how much to build a garage?

6 posts in this topic

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

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
