Garage addition planning.


ROFF

Recommended Posts

Hi all.    Giving serious thought to a garage addition to the side of the house for storing the boat.   Slips are a bit hard to come by at the moment and we use the boat way too much to put it in a storage place (ugh).   

For those who have done it, can you give a rough idea of your costs?    Will be about 30 x 15 attached to house with roller doors on each end plus slab.   Will be brick to match.

  

Thanks for any info.

We just built this 18x30 and did most of the work ourselves. We paid a friend for electrical and had a company do the insulation. Cost us about $18k.

Just did one as well, mine is attached ~40x44 with 12.5 foot ceilings and an attic. Cost? In Kansas the freeze line is 3 feet, and with the slope in my property I had to have 5 foot walls and footings. $8k for those and I dug the trenches....~$2k for the machine rental and gravel. I had the floor poured 6 inches thick. Got 3 bids for that... $14k, $14k, and $7k.... Concrete was $125 a yard, not sure what it is in your area now. My goal was $50k, but went a bit over due to the covid spike in material. Did everything myself (blue print drawings, framing, roofing, painting ect) except the concrete work so might double that cost if I had to pay someone to do it all. Best things I did were side mount high garage door openers, garage door on the backside, ceiling fans, and the elevator to load up the attic.

Menards has a fantasic online designer that will spit you out a materials list.  Even if you don't have a location near them, it could still be useful to show you what's needed and price out various options.  Running the cheapest 18x30 design through there looks to be about $9k in materials?

Attached are our permit plans we drew up. We did an 18X30 monolithic slab. The concrete was 10” thick around the edges (20” in) and then 4” thick through the middle. We were able to get 2x4x12 studs approved for the walls with them being 12” on center which was quite a bit cheaper than 2x6x12, 16” on center. I also bought the 4x8 plywood sheeting when it was “only” $30 a sheet. I don’t have a materials list but looks like it was about $20K all in with the siding. We worked with a local truss company and were able to fit a 12’x12’ garage door.

Thanks for the replies!    Wish it was easy as just heading down to Home Depot with the truck.   Unfortunately the admin part of it is not my specialty.

Dealing with the county and getting the permits is definitely the worst part of it. Building is easy!

😂…yes. I live in a small town, 8,000 people, in a fairly rural county. On a project that size they don’t really care how it is presented as long as it has everything that’s needed.

Having an estimate done this week.    Unfortunately it’s looking like it will cost more than my boat!   We will see. Be nice to have but will probably just end up with a slip.
