I know many of you have built a second garage after running out of room. I'm looking for your best estimate on how much it took to get it to a roofed and sided building (unfinished interior). Please include size, and if you did it yourself or hired it out!

I'm finding the major expense is the foundation.

 

 

Just depends on what you really want.  Do you live in a place where it is very cold and you plan on heating the place (ie, need good insulation).

 

 Have an idea of size?   2-3 car garage size is typically around $10k.

No heat planned at this time. Just storage

Concrete aint cheap.  

 

My only two suggestions are 1.  when you decide on the size, double it.  2.  When you decide where to put outlets, double them.  Put them places you think you'll never need them because eventually you will and you'll wish you had the outlet.

There is a near me company that advertises bare bones $18k  

6" Concrete Slab with 1/2" Rebar 24" Spacing - 2x4 Pressure Treated Sill Plates - 2x4 Wall Framing - Vinyl Siding  = 7/16" o.s.b. Wall Sheathing - Trusses built for Northeast Snowload - 5/8" o.s.b. for Roof Sheathing - 2x10 Headers Over Garage Doors - 2x10 Headers Over Windows - Two Insulated Double Hung Windows - Two 9'x7' Steel Garage Doors with Glass - One 36" Steel Entry Door with Glass - vinyl perforated soffits - Metal Fascia - 8" Galvanized Drip Edge - Screw down colored metal roofing -12" Overhangs for Roof - Labor to do the above.

 

I did not use them because my last Fall project was a 24x24 heated finshedd garage, studio and clubhouse. I needed footings & frost walls & local general contractor came very highly recommended and didn't disappoint.  A friend had used the company above and had issues with the concrete after a season being we are near the Canadian Border in Northern Vermont.

The biggest thing I found if you are not going to act as your own GC is to trust who you are having it done by. It is getting more and more difficult to find trades people where I live.  When I was younger, we did our own building subbing out certain things, now older and just want it done so gotta pay lol.

OUT of this world is what new garages cost.    The costs in our area have doubled in the last 5-7 yrs.      I built a 24X40   sided and roofed to match my home......with man door and large access front door.    Escavated and a drive way cut in with culvert.        8900.   In 2012

 

 

Only thing i added was the insulation and concrete. Which was 1300 more for the crete.    I have buddies getting quotes of 15-20-30 grand. now and not even as big as the one I have.     I guess I timed that right.

 

Mine is a pole, shingled, viny sided.    Any 1eVIL   is right on target.    Build it bigger, you'll have it full in no time.   I do.


Opinions are like butt holes......Everyone has one.

I built in ontario 2 years ago. 16x32 9’ ceilings icf. So cost is a little higher. But you can heat it with a candle. It costs $70 per month propane at .60 per litre to heat to 22celcius

Excavating- 1800
Footings- 500 concrete
Icf blocks - 6500
Concrete in icf with boom pump- 5500
Rebar- 1100
Trusses- 1800
Metal roof with 2x4 strapping-2500
Siding vinyl - 1100 with wood strapping
Windows- 1500 5 at 4’x4’
Overhead door insulated -900
Insulation under floor and wire mesh- 1500
Concrete floor 35mpa with air - 1800
Pex pipe in floor - 500
That is bare bones to build icf yourself but i spent more to finish it and heat it. I also put a bathroom with a shower in it as well. I had a septic system on site already so that saved quite a bit. All work was done by myself except for excavating and backfill.

You can build cheaper but i went with icf for the energy savings over time. It is very easy to heat and cool.

The cost for plywood and shingles vs 2x4 strapping and metal was the same. I recommend metal. It lasts much longer and hate doing a shingle roof

It is worth every penny to have somewhere warm to work and keep stuff from freezing. I bet i could turn heat off and it wouldn't freeze inside.

I also chose icf due to grade issues. So i could backfill against a wall and still have it insulated.

I would recommend icf to everyone. Even at a higher price

On the topic of heating the place, radiant floors are on the expensive side for installing but cuts the heating bill drastically.  I didn't do mine but wish now that I did.  There was another thread on this site with pictures of everyones garages.  If I can find it I'll post back.

IMG_0145.JPG I built in December 2017 

 

36x48 with 14' ceilings pole barn with a 8x24 porch on the side  I paid someone to build the shell 

 

Just the barn 33k

 

Site prep $2800--- Paid a family friend to scrape grass off the  yard. $600. My brother hauled my class 5 in his side dump 5 loads at 23 tons I got this at pit cost and off scale cash sale we know the people who run the gravel pit $1600.  My friends nephew did the grading of site $600

 

May 18'  I wired it myself to the power pole 200 amp service $2500.   I have 58 outlets in the building no shortage there. Lol 

 

July 18' I  had a concrete floor poured $11k and I also did in floor heat  ( its what I doo for a living ) $3500 for the insulation and piping 

 

This spring I've been insulating the walls I used foam board $2300 at 4' thick.  Bought attic insulation last fall got good deal $1000 for 50 bales of fiberglass 

framed out the walls and ceiling because my truss are 8 on center $1300 for lumber 

 

Ordered metal for the ceiling last week $2000 

paying guys who built the shed to hang metal and poly ceiling  $2500 

 

About $60,000

 

Wow didn't realize I had that much into it. 

 

And I still got to sheet the walls and get a boiler to heat it.  Probably have $75,000 into by the time I'm done

My current place has a piles of garage space, but none of it with a high enough ceiling to put a hoist in.

 

If I want to redo rafters or raise the roof now, it will be drastically harder now than it would have been to do back then. I also might have to jack hammer and deepen the slab where I would mount it as well.

It is to the point that I might as well just put in another bay. Like I need parking for 7 vehicles.

Evil, Is this the thread you were thinking about?   It is one of my favorites.  LOL.

Pole shed or stick built garage ? 

 

Depends on how its outfitted but a with couple overhead doors, concrete, heat, insulation, wiring, and basic plumbing an approximate # would be about 6-8K per stall for stick built and about 5-7K for pole shed. 

 

A stall being 12x24

 

Pole sheds are easier to go tall ceilings
