Nice! How about some narrative? Why did you choose block? (I've considered it for part of my garage, as well.) Did you compare the cost of block build to stick build? Why the tall doors? Is that stucco on the outside? Will you have a pad out front?

Forgive the questions, but I like the construction a lot, so more info may help me decide if I go that route on mine.

LOL No prob for the questions.
I chose block because I live in south FL and those nasty hurricanes will reek havoc on a stick building down here, also not to mention the nasty termites that are all over down here. I went with 10x10 rollup doors because I have a f-250 that is all jacked up and it needs 8.5 feet to clear so why not just go 10. Bigger is better right? Yeah it is stucco on the exterior. The stucco work was done on Saturday so it needs time to cure before the paint. I have had a ton ov help building the garage, almost knowing a buddy that specializes in some type of constuction work that I needed.

All in all Im looking at about 28,000 total for the build. not bad for 1080 sq ft. The damn roll up doors were 4400. The roof was about 9000 for material and labor. Block was about 4500 material and labor. Slab was about 4000 in just material.

Hope that helpd. Where do you live?

Very nice and basic.
Looks like something I would build.

Did they lift the mesh as they were pouring the concrete?

Thanks, yeah not too fancy.....yet. I did happen to get a two post Atlas lift that needs to be installed in one of the bays.

Yeah, my uncle owns the concrete company and i watched them lift it up. The plans called for 4 inch slab at 2500psi but i went 6 inches with 3000psi, fibermesh and steel. Hopefully no stray cracks and she stays looking good!

Thanks for the info. I'm in the desert near Phoenix, so hurricanes aren't much of a concern. I am interested in block for the workshop/secure tool storage area of my garage, though. My entire build will also be stucco to match the house. (Some pictures of my proposed plan in post 21 of my planning thread.)

28k sounds pretty reasonable for a solid build like yours. I like it.

I can sympathize. I live a bit east in the WPB area. Looking to get a new hurricane rated 2-car garage door to replace what I have. It is so depressing to look at all these beautiful doors online then you click for the "Wind rated" ones and they're 400% more.

its very rare to see a build tread like this on here.....completely understand your reason...its simple and looks good.....you were right to go with 6" floor, i dont think the lift would be safe on a 4" slab.....keep the pics coming

Looks great! You will not be sorry that you did 13' ceilings. I just did a 22 x 27 addition w/13' and i'm glad I did. I'm really shocked at you total cost. I have double that in mine. You have a lot of bang for the buck!

Yeah man I love the tall ceilings! I kept the cost low BC I did owner builder and my life long buddies that I grew up with helped me out on the cost big time. Especially my buddy Clark who is the sales rep for Cemex. Big kudos to him!!!!

Very nice, I want to go that route too. Just for giggles what did the block work/mat'l cost alone?

I used about 1650 individual blocks at .99 cents per block and 81 bags of mortar at $5.25 per bag plus the three lintels and delivery. After taxes my price for the materials was $2674. The labor for the block was $1850.

Do you have any more pics of the install process? I am getting ready to install a Bendpak 10K 2 post and am considering installing it myself. How did you stand it up? It looks like you put it together before you raised it into position, I would think it might be easier to handle one post at a time.
