My Detatched Garage Project

So, encouraged by GTAHVIT's 3-car garage thread I decided to start a thread on my garage project. I am not sure how exciting it will be since I don't plan on having any of the fancy interior at this point. What I really need for now is parking space. I have too many cars and not enough bays.

The solution is a 24' x 48' 4-bay detatched garage with storage on the second floor. The drawings, etc, have been submitted for the permits. That was step 1. Step 2 was clearing some trees out of the way. That turned into a bigger job after a limb from one fell onto my truck. That basically doubled the number of trees removed.

Anyway, here are two pics of the progress. The first is with about half the trees down and the second is with all trees removed. I will keep the thread updated as things move along.

We need to hang out a shingle advertising our services. We need to take pictures of GTA's and Pete's garages when we're done with them for advertising purposes.

Pete aren't you glad you started this thread?

I think you should put 110% of your focus on GTA's garage. We don't want any part of it to be neglected. We can always get back to mine later.........much, much later.

Does that mean we need to find a king-size one for your garage?

Permits were all finalized today and picked up this evening. With any luck, the footers and foundation walls should start early next week.

Congrats Pete! But I think it is too small! You need to change 2nd floor ,,take it out and add lifts. After all, you still need room for a '69 Camaro. a ZL1 and of course a 'real' truck!!

Wow. With friends like you two... Such great helpers. Why aren't we all over in GTA's house thread "helping" him?

So the concrete guys actually started a day early. They are digging the footers today and hope to have the rebar in this afternoon and pour them tomorrow. Now it's getting exciting!
