  1. Hey guys wanted to get some opinions on my upcoming detatched dream garage build. I am planning to have 24x28 garage built for my hobbie shop(wheel horses and cars). My question is what kind of foundation should i do. I am in northern indiana and have been told i can build on a monolithic slab(thickened structural slab on grade) or traditional footings with a floating slab. My local building code allows both types for detached structures. I prefer footings since they get below the frost line but they are significantlying more expensive. Does anyone have any past experience with a monolithic slab foundations. I don't want to cheap out on my foundation, but if i go with footings I will have give up some other features I wanted.
  2. Stevebo's Barn Build

    Well it has been forever that I have wanted to build a nice barn to store my horses and work on them. Yesterday was the day that I started this long project. I will use this thread to document the progression. I anticipate this will be a several month build. Here is the start !
  3. Need some recommendations on a new shed. I'm looking at putting up one of these metal buildings - I might have posted this link sometime back to the manufacturer's website, but here it is again: http://www.carolinacarportsinc.com/configurator/index What I'd like to do is put up a building with two garage doors. There would be space equal to the width of the garage doors between the garage doors and the opposite sides of them. This would be on the long side of the building and descriptively is like this: wall-space-door-space-door-space-wall The idea is to put tractors, junk, pop-up camper, firewood, etc, to the extent possible out of the garage door lanes and that would be to either side of the two garage doors and the space between them. So I have some questions: - How tall should the building be? Nothing bigger than a 1/2 or 3/4 ton truck would in it. - How deep (as you drive into it) is desirable? 20ft, 24ft - looking for some reasonable depth such that I can pull in a vehicle and yet not be so crowded that I can't work around it or even move a tractor around the end of it? - how wide should be garage doors be? I'd like to get a full size truck through them without being so narrow that I'd smash a mirror. - If you look at the website, they offer vertical or horizontal siding. I'm thinking vertical. Don't know if this is better for looks or strength or both. What you do think? - I'd like to put this building on a concrete pad. Question is - how thick and what type - rebar or concrete with fiber or both. This is just in the planning stage - not sure I'll do it, but I want to figure out what experience others have with their garages, and lessons learned from theirs you can share.

    SINCE I LIKE OLD IRON, decided thet i needed more space. pretty low on funds (2 back surgerys) what is my option?????? went net serching and found pallet sheds. Started collecting this spring and this is the result. What do u guys think. is a 12 x 16
  5. was just going through my photobucket account and realized while most of you have seen pics of the inside of my garage when im doing work on the s nearly all of you havent seen how it got that way..... the building is 24 x 40 x 10, walls are 2 x 6 old straight lumber salvaged from an old warehouse that was on the now vacant block next door. truss roof. i dont have any digitals of the foundation and slab pour, only from when we started framing. jeanine and i did everything except the slab and electrical load center install, the trusses were pre fab but we flipped them up just the two of us, some days trying to convince her we werent crazy was hard. it definitely brought a close marriage closer.....anyway enjoy the pics...... alright i need a rest for 5 minutes...........
  6. Well I am excited to report that progress is now moving forward with the new workshop. Some plans are still in the works, but we are under way. This is going to be located on my parents new property and it will house all of the horses. This is a huge part of my dad's retirement and I am lucky enough to share in the excitement with him. I am going to try and keep a running update on our progress. We are real pleased to be getting this started. When it is all said and done we will have a 30x60 pole barn with cement floor, and electric and water out to the building. The shop will be approximately 30x45 and the other 15x30 will house dad's truck. Will be deciding on a heating source in the future. Here is what was sitting there before............ Old 2 car detached garage. We tossed around the idea on making this our paint booth but this building is in pretty rough shape and needs to much work to save her. In one day the old garage has been removed along with all of the old concrete. Added was a sound base and ground work has been started. Framing will start this week as things will move fairly rapidly. The inside is what is going to take some time. Looks much different out there in just one day! Will keep everyone updated on our progress...............
  7. Started working in the Horse Stable today! If the truth be known instead of screwing off all summer playing with the new toy "The Motor Home" better known as the "Dukes Stabin Cabin" and spending all of the weekends camping, I should have been working on what I'm doing now! Well the first order of buisness is the wireing. Will be installing outlets at each tractor location as to allow for "SMART CHARGERS" ie: battery tenders for the tractors. After the wireing is complete will be insulating and sheeting the stable with OSB. then will paint. Ever have problem with loose outlet boxes and outlets? Cut material the thickness to fill the gap behind the outlet box then run screws through the back of the box through the spacer material and into wall board "Make sure your screw depth is correct" If the wall board is sheetrock Use adhesive on the back of the outlet box and filler material it will make your boxes ROCK SOLID also run a screw thru the side of the box into the stud! Had to get some heat out into the stable, used a Box Fan to blow heat from the garage through a window. Once it is insulated will cut out the doorway where the window is! Also installed some proper vents from soffits into existing garage.
