It's coming along... oh so slowly.



Siding is now done, and the electric is run. Still have to make the connection at the house, and make a few changes (inspector didn't like a couple of things).

Hopefully, electric will be done in a week to ten days, then insulation and dry wall.

Then, it's epoxy on the floor, light fixtures, and paint!

My goal is to have her finished by Thanksgiving.

I agree about the walls, but I would have left the ceiling a lighter color. Having the ceiling red is a bit...well...like working in the firepits of hell?

First installment from Frankenstine labs of my shop (to ashamed to show more until it has been cleaned and organized). I just finished this cart (well, the major assembly is done, I still want to paint and do some finish work):



It is a section of racking (4'x12') that I placed 2000 lb casters on the legs. Put decking made of 3/4" plywood with metal trusses to help provide support to the deck. I put some metal cabinets that I got back when I used to do construction. Put two layers of 3/4" plywood on the cabinets and mounted my drill press to the shorter one. The top has the same set up as the deck the cabinets are on so it can handle a lot of weight as well.

Front view:



The Drill press is mounted to the cabinet and it has 4 heavy duty full pull slides on it allowing me to pull it out if I need to work on some larger or unwieldy items:



Of course I plumbed it for power, installed 3, 4' single bulb florescent lights on a switch, and put a self retracting reel to attach the power cord. The entire reason for the casters is so that during the nice weather, I can move the rig outside on the concrete and work outside. Another reason is that it raises it up enough to fit my motorcycle lift under. Some day it will be put into the floor like I saw someone else in here do, but until then, it gets hidden untill needed.

Anyone have an idea on what it costs to build a 30x24 garage? Nothing fancy, just a stick built with a concrete floor will do just fine. I'm looking at a house that has one small garage but I'll need some more room eventually.

Thats great. I'm a firm believer in having things on wheels. Makes a much more versatile shop. I bought a pallet jack and have as many things as possible set up so they can be easily moved. You never know what project might pop up where you need a big open area. I put casters on a set of 2'x4' shelves that I can roll over next to the bike lift to give me a place to lay all the parts during disassembly and not clutter up the work bench. Then it can be rolled out of the way....Make sure you use a good heavy cord if you roll it a distance and plug in anything with a motor

Well, I just built a 29'x36' building for $10,000. But no slab. And no insulation or finished inside walls. $2,300 of it was two garage doors with electric openers. And about $1.700 was electric wiring ,outlets, breaker panel, and 8 light fixtures. All metal roof and siding. Pics a few pages back.... Just to give you an idea. Around here a 4 on 12 pitch 24' roof truss can be had for about $65. You'd need 16 for a 30' building haveing them on 2' centers. Metal here is about $2.10 linear foot (3' wide) (29 guage). I built about as cheaply as you can go. Obviously cost will depend how elaborate you get

^^^ +1

During heavy rains, it keeps the door seals from being subjected to so much water; no leakage. Also, keeps snow back and off the door. Provides more shade, inside the garage, on sunny days.

Wish I would've done more overhang on mine.

This is 24' X 36' X 10' and is just a shell. I paid for concrete labor and wall framing labor. Keep in mind that I didn't use the cheapest siding and trim, windows, or doors. I've got about $17K in it, so far. I'd think with 8' ceilings and less expensive materials, you could do it for around $10-12K.

... check in at your local home improvement store ... they can usually help and if you go to Lowe's you can have them put your material list into "QSP" and get you some better prices (shameless spam alert, I work for Lowe's) ... Home Depot has a similar program as well ...

... just a thought ...
