Default Building a new garage, 24' x 42'

My family has lived in our house for a couple years and I have outgrown our small 22' deep x 24' wide garage.

I poured an additional 18' wide x 24' deep slab with intentions of adding onto the existing garage in 2011, but deemed the existing structure was not worth adding onto.

Dirt Work

Fast forward until this spring. Arranged for a guy to have my existing garage. Gave it away on Facebook of all places. He paid to have it moved about 10 miles.





5 hours later the garage was GONE!!



Blank Slate!!

The existing concrete was absolute crap......and as much as I hated the idea it had to be torn out.

While we were at it we decided to tear out the patio as well.





Prep. I demoed the slab, but on the advice of a couple contractors I left the wall at the back to pour the new on. That saved some work.



Slab poured and ready to build.

Lumber arrives



Wall building begins!! I built all four walls and did as much prep as I could in 3 days.



Walls going up. I gathered as many willing body's as I could to stand the walls up and set rafters



End of day one. All walls set, sheeted and about 1/3 of the rafters set. It was about 95 degree and a brutal tough day!!

End of the first full building weekend. Rafters on, first row of sheeting on both sides and vehicles parked inside.



View from the bonus room.




Within a couple days I had the roof sheeted. We had a storm watch with hail potential so I jammed all the vehicles and the trailer inside.



Roofed, wrapped and doors on......

The came soffit and fascia. I hate the stuff, but luckily I had a scissor lift to do all but the back side of the garage. It went fairly quick.

I was able to find a vinyl siding that matched the paint on my house almost perfect, so it was decided to go that route.



On the patio side of the garage I attached a ledger board to the wall for a future pergola over the new patio. That will not happen until next spring or summer.



After the siding was done I had one last concrete pour to do. We had cut the old driveway back to the next expansion cut when we demoed so that needed to be poured, plus there was the driveway for the new stall.

It was blowing like crazy and we were fighting leaves but it turned out OK.





The existing driveway is in tough shape from all the construction traffic. As much as I wanted to tear it out and start all new it was just not in the budget, plus I really did not have the time available.

Looking very good.
I like the loft area as well, plenty of space to keep all the junk!!

Thanks guys!!

So the outside was done.....time to move forward on the inside. The plan was for exposed conduit on the surface. I am an electrician by trade so this is a no brainer. I want the ability to be able change stuff if needed.

After insulating and putting up a vapor barrier I decided on 7/16" OSB and some decorative old galvanized tin as a wanescote. To change it up, some of the tin runs all the way up the walls.



The stub wall you see by my table saw will hold my plumbing and boiler for my floor heat system.



Here is a picture of the completed boiled and plumbing.

Looks good. Are you going to be able to get a lift in there?

It was quick and painless and saved me a bunch of demo and haul away.

From them arriving to them pulling away with the garage on a trailer was less than 6 hours.

The new owner paid about $2000 to have it moved.

My walls are only 10' so not really. I could probably make a 4 post work.

The attic space is pretty important to me, so I was not willing to give that up if I used Scissor joists. The city would not let me do anything bigger than 10' side walls.

Next came the ceiling. We chose to the use the same galvanized tin on the ceiling after we insulated and installed a moisture barrier.





I am really happy with the look. The old stuff has a ton of character and really gives it a great look. Just what I was looking for!!

The sheets were 22' long which made it a challenge to put on the ceiling, but a scissor lift helps along with a couple guys on ladders.

Up next came the electrical. The existing service to the house was only 100amps and was run overhead. I wanted to get rid of the overhead wires and really had no way to get a new service fed to the house without a lengthy expensive bore job.

I decided to feed the garage with a 200amp feed and sub feed the house off of that. I also added a 100 amp off peak panel to run my Boiler.

For lighting I decided to run 8' tandem T8's. They went up easy with the scissor lift.

For as many inquiries I got on it in a short amount of time I should have actually sold it, but regardless it was painless seeing it hauled away!
