Make an access through the garage. Or better yet, cut the part of the deck off and make the garage even bigger. with a through access.


How warm do you want the garage to be? Anything above 60f is just a waste.IMO

Son-in-law just left. He's gonna talk to the town by-law guy and find out how long I can build it...and how far away from the house it has to be. How far from the house will dictate the length...as my yard isn't very big.

That's my issue Brad - 15ft from the sideline and 20ft from any existing building is what I'm regulated to. I have a 60' wide patch but after regulations, I'm left with 25'. If I attach it I can build what I want up to the 15ft sideline. 1 street over, it's 10' and 10'. My township is less than helpful and has not responded to any of my questions. I need to call another builder - the last few have been no shows or never deliver the quote. I just haven't felt like dealing with it.

Not sure if you can do it up there Brad, but in the states you can file with the municipality for what’s called a variance. This is an exception to the rules. We had to do one for my father in laws back porch. File with the city and then send certified letters to the neighbors to see if they had a problem with what we wanted to do. If no one squawks, then the variance is approved and your somewhat free to build.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Double door?  14ft would fit two cars, door opening is a b*tch tho. I prolly only have 16ft to work with for ours.

Single door. I'm on a small lot. This will be as big as the town will allow for the lot size. I have a 1 and a half storey. Built in 1952. Looks like a 'war time' home. They were built to last. No plywood BS. Roof is 2x10.

Will they allow height for a lift? If so, get the overhead bar type, not the one that routes cables through floor type cover. In floor heat can't be beat, very efficient also if properly insulated, floor included. Your not building a huge building so in floor won't be that bad cost wise to operate, just up front cost. As mentioned, lots of plug ins with lots of breakers, 4 foot up is convenient. Again with that size a ceiling mounted extension cord on a retractable reel is super handy. Will reach most of shop. Run an air line down one side with quick connects every 6 ft. Super handy. Use white steel on ceiling with LED lighting and you will love the lighting. Just finished building my 3rd shop and these are some things I have incorporated in last one. If I ranked by "must have" first is in floor heat, second is led lighting, third is lots of plug ins.  Just my 2 cents, enjoy the new shop

The best advice you will get is from a man that has obviously built a shop before!
