Title: Garage Build (Fixed)...I think
Post by: Nexus on August 10, 2018, 09:24:19 PM
So it has been a journey with every possible snag and hurdle that can come up and discourage a person from building a garage and most of it stems from our cities BS bylaws. We started digging 1 year ago.

So after some  changes made to the drawings, we settled on 32x36 with the intention to expand it an additional 16 feet off the west side...this will run East and West...14' ceiling, two 12x12 G. Doors on the East wall,  one 9'x7' G door on the North wall, and going to get a 200 amp service. On the top side it will have Metal roofing that matches the house. It'll probably cost $55,000.00 to $65,000.00 by the time its finished and we saved cash by deciding to take on the framing ourselves. anyways...I will update this as things progress.

"The Project" will be reborn soon!!!!!

Well, problems posting pictures aside, I am waiting for the city inspector to come out and check out the pre-concrete inspection. If I get the thumbs up from that, then I can pour concrete this week...well...not me but the contractor I hired.

Right on, thank you very much

Congrats.

That's the idea...want it to be able to hold heat intelligently before the snow flies...doesn't leave me much time...I was supposed to be framing during these two weeks I was off.

So after this picture was taken from my phone, my dad parked his car and truck up on the pad for a picture with his camera. later in the day he backed his flat bed trailer up there to fix some wiring issues. Getting used before the walls go up.

I love it

That's a thick pad, I'm assuming it's because you are up north.

It is a floating slab setup with built in footings so the perimeter is thicker than the center but the center is still 6" reinforced with thick rebar

Looking good! Did 2 guys place and finish that slab? If so, I'm impressed.

It was setup with a general contractor doing most of the grunt work with a mini-ex setup in the center, to get the grade on point and the forms were established by 2 guys and a kid doing the gopher work. All double checked with the a special level tool. Only one of the two guys in the pic set up the forms. Guy with the hat was at a different project during that time.

Now we are waiting on the block layer to come in and set one course of block

Thanks guys...We wanted to have the height for the hoist that we'll get eventually. Seemed like a good ides to have the third door at the back...it's taken up so much time
Title: Re: Garage Build (Fixed)...I think

I agree with you on both the height and the door. Even if you use it once a year it will be nice to have back there.

Today, (Sunday), we had my dad's friend and 2 of his boys come to help with the roofing which was totally unexpected as we had planned to get other stuff done...This was better...We got the South side roofing on!!

I'm at the peak, with my arse in the air!!

Looks Great! Getting dryed in is about half the battle. And with the sky's looking the way they do makes me think you're about to get snow. Pretty nice surprise to get some unexpected help, especially with a roof. I had a (whom I thought was) a buddy tearing down a barn to relocate. He needed help one Saturday, so I volunteered. It was me, him and his 2 strong, healthy, strapping teenage sons. We were taking the metal off of the roof. I was the only one not afraid to climb so I did the majority of the work, while the 3 of them stood on the ground stacking stuff as I sent it down. That was a lesson learned.

Update Time:

We managed to get most of the exterior wrap on the house...west peak left to finish...We have been getting the few things the inspector wanted done to pass...we have been working on where we want plugs, and lights so that job is about 80% done...we ran out of fuel for our heaters so we have been braving the chilly weather.

All said and done, we will have 15 - 4 foot LED lights set up on 3 rows running east to west. My dads biggest complaint (aside from the size), about my grandfathers garage was that it was dark!! (well...he was a miner underground)
Title: Re: Garage Build (Fixed)...I think
Post by: roadking77 on November 30, 2018, 07:51:37 AM
I put 8-4' leds in my 40' x 24'. Plenty of light, I think you will be more than happy with what you have. I agree with your Dad, its nice to have plenty of light.
Title: Re: Garage Build (Fixed)...I think
Post by: Jack on November 30, 2018, 10:42:19 AM
I would recommended switched plugs at the ceiling and use plugin strip LEDs. This will allow you to adjust the position of the lights if needed.

That would have been a good idea but we already have the lights, we're going to use...they are spaced out into 3 even rows, at 6 feet apart...all lined up with the laser line level...what a sweet thing to use for such things!!

On another note, we had an interesting visitor yesterday...white Farret

Been working on the electrical and setting up some temporary heat for the place.

We kinda took a break over the holidays, and my dad has decided to hire an electrician to finish the inside as we have little clue what the electrical codes are. Probably better off and might get done sooner.

Progress has been slow but I did put my snow machine in there to work on it...that was far better than wallowing in the cold wet snow

I'm sure you are providing enough power to run a large compressor and maybe some electric heat, I would recommend a 240 volt sub panel.

We are going to put a 200 amp service to the shop alone and then still have 200 amp for the house...I know its overkill but I will be able to add anything I want to the grid after that and never have to worry. our compressor is in the basement of the house and we have run an airline through the service tubes we put underground out to the garage. We will move the compressor out to the garage once its finished.
Title: Re: Garage Build (Fixed)...I think
Post by: Nexus on January 21, 2019, 10:26:14 AM
So...

We decided to hire an electrician to complete the wiring. This way it gets done to code and done properly. He has convinced us that we only need 100 amp panel in the garage and 200 amp in the house. This will obviously save us money, which we can in turn give to him for his services.

Also, we finally got the temporary furnace installed just to take the bite out of the air so we can get some work done.

Yeah that's all it is...250 (so like $50 bucks American...lol) dollar repurposed oil unit...had the shroud made and guy come and show us how to make it work...a little tweak here and there and voila...heat

I personally think my dad should have put the time and effort into the propane furnace we have for the shop but this is how he works and it's his garage so...his money, his decision.

Alright,

Need to get caught up

We had an electrician come in and wire up the inside of the garage for us which took him all of 3 days and not full days to complete. He will be coming back when we can break ground and upgrade the house panel to 200 amp. He talked us into going 200 amp rather than 400 to help save some money.

We recently got the 2x6 walls insulated, and let me tell you, what a difference keeping the heat in and the cold air out...we just have the ceiling to finish there.

We also managed to get the first row of drywall up. We intend to do the first 6 feet and contract out the ceiling and the upper 8 feet of wall.

Looks really good. Your gonna end up beating me to the finish line! I only have half my insulation finished, and half the walls. My electrician is out for prostrate surgery, not sure how long that's going to be.

Why are you only doing the lower 6 feet but not the upper 8 feet? I would think it's easy enough to install the upper 8 feet in full sheets resting on the lower sheets.

I wouldn't get too excited...we aren't done yet. You still have time to catch up!!!

Ahh...We don't want to do the ceiling and it should go up before the wall panels go up. Has a lot to do with ambition and my dad (bearded guy in pic) is almost 70 years old, I'm super busy all the time, lack of interest, hard finding a 14 foot drywall jack around here, contractor can do it faster and easier...all kinds of reasons and excuses.

Your logic makes perfect sense. I would have them finish the ceiling as well whilst there. Have you considered a metal ceiling? Not sure how they do things in your neck of the woods but I can get whats called "panel liner" locally. It is the same profile as the metal barn siding only made in a thinner gauge, thus reducing the cost. Once screwed into place your finished. I plan on using that for my ceiling and everything above 8'. My cost is about the same as buying drywall, but I am not paying anyone to finish or paint so it comes out about even. IF your paying someone it will be cheaper than using wallboard. Also, its a lot easier to install than hanging 4 x 12 sheetrock!

I hadn't thought of it to be honest...I will run the idea past the old guy and see what he says...it may not be a bad idea!!!

I thought you had a garage, and a barn?

hahaha Jack.  It's hard to post from my iPhone.  It's now corrected to 14 FOOT instead of 14" ;)  BTW- kentucky yeti lives in Kentucky (but I am real close to the border).

Not sure how I screwed that one up :lol: but you know the entire south looks the same to us northerners (maybe because I travel to TN a lot to a site that is on the boarder and we must have talked about how close you are on TAC).

Yup...everything south of the border is considered the deep south to me...anything south of Barrie Ontario I figure is really getting into the warmer climate zones...lol
