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

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks. 
    •     Ok, I think I need to clarify my statement. My belief is they would be better off in letting ObamaCare collapse on it's own than passing "Obamacare part 2." My first choice would be to just repeal it. Then I suppose a debate can happen  
    •   Ryan's bill is a direct taxpayer subsidy to the healthcare industry, via the insurance companies.  I think we have enough experience with subsidies to know that the outcome generally isn't good with that.   Probably the best thing to do is just repeal the ACA, and hand it back to the healthcare industry.  But that isn't likely to happen because there is just too much money involved.   Like any other slippery slope, the sledding is pretty good going downhill - not so easy going back up...
