I had a pad poured a while back and this spring we are hoping to be able to afford to throw up the garage.

How much would you suspect materials for a garage that is 26'x36', 10' 2x4 walls, 1 16'x9' door, 2 man doors, 2 small windows, vinal siding?

i can't seem to find anything useful online. I know I will have to go talk to a store and order exact materials, but does someone have a ballbark guess

I priced one the other day.

I put one up myself about that size for just under 5K total. Took me a year of weekends and sucked the life out of me.

Flat roof or rafters? Roofing material? Insulated and drywalled? Electric? All of these things add up quick.

Go to your local building supply house (84 Lumber,dean,etc-whatever your local equivalent is).Most will/can spec out a prepackaged "kit" that is cheaper than doing it yourself.And,resize that door if you EVER plan on pulling anything inside.

ETA: nice to have a three course of block of so, before going to stick.Makes for tighter,dryer building.

Not a flat roof? I figure OSB and standard shingles for the roof. I will wire it and I bet I can get a goot portion of the wire and boxes free. I fact, don't even include electricity. No insulation and no drywall. I like to freeze my ass off, that or save money.

Why resize the door I thought a standard door was 16'x8'. I am just going higher?

About the block, I was acutally going to ask that. Can I lay block around the pad. I would like to do one couse anyways, if not two. Our house is showing right about 1.75, so it is a toss up. But if I go 2 then I only need 2x4x8s.

Check with Lowes/Home Depot/84 Lumber/etc. They should all have complete garage "kits" which include everything needed except for the concrete slab. They are avail in all different sizes also.

I think a standard garage door is 16 x 7. Kinda short for some toys.

I was trying to find "garage kit" at Home Depot, and found a bunch of garage kits - metal type bldgs -over at Ebay.


Search Ebay with: "garage kit"
