Haha, they always say you never regret going bigger.    Morning after we poured the apron.  

Here are some photos of the project, getting close... it’s too cold for me to put the stone on the front, I did get some paint on but have a bit more to go. All and all, I’m happy with it.

If you are considering resale, you should do a 14' door and at least 16' ceilings - that way it can also be an "RV garage".

My door is 20' wide x 14' tall.  I don't have a steel beam, and in about 12 years, no sag.

Would have loved to do a floor drain, but no easy way to do it and have the building permitted.  

Lots of electric.  I have outlets every 6'. And a 50 amp circuit for my RV.  Don't forget outlets outside the building.

The more natural light the better.  Mine has lots of windows, and a couple of sky lights.

Water would be nice.

My building is insulated and heated.  No AC or fans.  In the summer in Denver, it is in the mid 80's.  When I bring in my heat soaked truck, it can bring the temp up to low 90's.  I don't think I would do AC, but a whole house fan would be a good idea if it cools down at night.  For heat, I used a Big Buddy propane heater.  Easily keeps the temp 50* in the winter.  Can heat it warmer but I have never needed to.

Build it as big as you can.  It won't be big enough.  My original building was 24' x 52'.  Then I added another about 400 sq ft.  And I still wish it was bigger.



Excellent garage, immediately catches the eye of space and compactness.
