Default 24x24 on the cheap. Diy

Alright guys I'm finally going to post some pics of my build. It's been a long process and I've done 99% of the work myself and even tore a 24x32 garage down before I got started. (More on that later) here goes nothing. Pics on the way.

Sorry I don't have any pics of the tear down. Wasn't very happy at that time. Hated to tear the old garage down, but I just couldn't stand how low and short it was. Not to mention the roof leaked, water poured in under the door every time it rained and it just didn't "work" for me.

Slab poured. I'm getting to out of shape to pour an finish anymore. This put a hurting on me and one other friend. It didn't help I poured it dry and had added calcium for the cool weather we were having at the time.

Framing started. I used the 2x6 rafters from the old garage to build the walls. Cut the down to 9'. Worked great.
