Default My 2010 built 28x38x10 with Full Dormered Loft

Here's my new build i started last July (2010).

Area was wooded and hilly. Cleared and graded with a big piece of ledge that was a pain to remove. We kept the big piece of granite on the left in the third pic that was pulled out with many others. Kind of funny watching the big John Deere struggling to move it around.

Foundation has 4' frost walls, floor is 5" thick with controlled joints, vapor barrier and fiberglass added for strength.

Access to the upper level is a two tier stairway.

Looks great! I am planning a similar garage. Do you have any plans you could pass along?

jsandlin0803,

Thanks, unfortunately i don't. The original design was kind of changed a bit at the last minuite. The full dormers were added as well as the decision to go with I joists for the floor.

I also added and upgraded the additional windows. The transums above the garage doors as well as the doubles on one side and the 3 tier in the front. The lower windows are at 6' for added security/privacy.

2X6 Construction, R19 Insulation for the walls and R30 in the floor. The rim I joists were filled with foil foam board and sealed with spay foam.

Nice. Surprised you insulated the floor. Will the upper level be outside the heating envelope?

Mind sharing your rough cost on this build for materials only?

Thanks for the kind words all.
Half the garage area (left side) will be the "clean" side per say and will be plaster and not sheet rock (Here in New England it's cheaper) the right side, or dirty side will be OSB.

There will be no solid seperation between each side. The floor will be epoxied, heat will be 75K BTU Mr. Heater. Compressor will be in vented, waterproof shed mounted on slab outside. Inside on adjacent wall has switched 240V with indicator for power. Airline will be 3/4" black iron pipe plumbed around the shop. A lift may be an added item in the future.

The upper floor will be open concept with tounge and grove pineboard. Cathedral ceilings with a post and beam theme. Haven't fully decided on how i want to implement. The upper floors intent will have a small area partitioned for my Amateur Radio "shack". The remaining area will be the Man cave with hardwood floors. Primary heat will be wood with propane as likely secondary.

In essence yes. The lower garage level will be the primary usage area especially during the winter so i wanted to keep the garage area tight. The insulation in the floors is the Owens corning comfort touch so there is no vapor barrier. Ceiling will also be plastered.

I would have to go back and do the math and deduct the labor. The windows were a big cost addition. The garage is a bit bigger than my house and also has more windows.

Very nice build. I like the fully kicked out dormers that really make some good useable space upstairs.

I too was wondering what was going to happen under the stairs.

Lots of great ideas here! I plan to build a 30 by 40 workshop with attic. Doors will be in the long wall, due to my lot layout. Subscribing to keep track of your progress!

Met with my first builder yesterday, so it's starting...

My builder boxed in the stairs. I installed an outlet and above light fixture inside the boxed area which is switched on the outside wall. There will be a door installed for access. I had originaly contemplated having the compressor here but have thrown around a couple of ideas from a small parts paint spray booth with venting to various types of storage. I temporarily have some items stored under the first tier stairway.

What ideas can you guys come up with?

Too many to write down. Look at the index on post three of this link. Shopnut did a LOT of good stuff. ..and the stairs ain't bad either.
