30'x42' Garage build project

Well it has begun.

For the past 20 years I have been wrenching and storing seven bikes out of the house basement, right beside the gas fired furnace. So between being worried about burning the place down with 35 gallons of fuel just waiting to leak, I really had little room to walk let alone twist a wrench.

Twenty years of saving and dreaming has placed me in this current spot. On Saturday Sept 28th the foundation dig has begun.

So in store is a photo doc.

The permit





project was designed to start in May.
But I tend to drag my feet.

I have blamed the riding season, the wet spring summer, my travel for work, lack of design plans. Truth be told I hate to spend cash.

The site before




Its a small swell on the property






About 5 foot deep





Use to hold a fifty year old White Dogwood, I will miss its bloom in the spring



On Friday the equipment was brought in and the last of the green landscape was moved out










Saturday the footer trench is done, elevation pins set. Strong crew, and a demon runs that Bobcat.

Didn't tear up anything that didn't need torn up























Monday morning call to building inspector for Footing inspection

24"x22" min with 2 1/2" rebar.

Tuesday or Wed. the footer will be poured. By Friday 10" block will be delivered

I have an appointment with a building salesman this coming Tuesday for the very same thing...a 30 x 42 x 14.

After 20 years in the military + 10 years as a military contractor, I think its finally time to pull the trigger and build my dream shop (I aint getting any younger!).

Congratulations, I will be watching your build very closely!

What the brick one next door?


Just sold, $350k Built in 1982. Well water. 4 bedroom, .75 acre, best neighbors a guy could wish for....
New ones moved in today, He sales BMW Cars, there is a baby blue Porsche Boxer in the drive, two young kids one on the way. One big ass Bull Mastif, and immediate plans for a fence, and he wants to know, (first meeting asking to drive a truck on my property to drop off kids playhouse) if I would mind cutting down two 60 year old 60' pines since they have seen better days.

Most likely... I ain't gonna like em much.



My place is 80 year old cape cod shunda... we bought 17 years ago for 65K one acre lot.

Should have been a tear down for the neighborhood.



Instead we have gutted it and refit it for us. cost 25k and a lot of sweat equity. Comfortable easy to manage 3 bedroom home.

Ah. I thought it was yours, and it looks like stone in the pic. I was thinking maybe early 19th century or something.

Too bad it sounds like you're going to have a prick for a neighbor. Maybe he'll get tired of "slumming" it and quickly move on to something else (or discover that he has more obligations than cash flow and has to bail). And I wouldn't cut down the trees, either. Make sure he doesn't try to encroach with his fence.

Smaller is better for housing, as far as I'm concerned. Cheaper and easier to maintain, and you're less likely to get lost getting from the kitchen to the bathroom. It's also a good excuse to not be asked to host large multi-day gatherings.

I'm assuming a step in the foundation but given it's a level site I wonder too?
