Advice on building a garage
We have been planning on building a detached garage for years but other things have always come first. The kids are out of college now and on their own. It's time!!
We need space for two cars, storage, and a woodworking shop. At this point we are thinking of building a gable end 28' wide by 40' deep, single story, with some storage upstairs - at least enough to house the air cleaning system for the wood shop. I've been drawing up plans for years - dreaming is free.
We live in a rural area where building costs are less than the big city but I'm sure we should brace ourselves. It can be difficult to line up a contractor as they are all busy building mini-mansions. We will need the concrete work done for us, the framing and getting a roof overhead. We can handle it from there having done siding, windows, sheetrock, etc.
Does anyone out there have advice for us?
