I would like to create a 10' by 11' room inside my garage. The building is 16 years old, the garage floor is concrete, the seilng is 8', the room that we would like to buid will require 3 walls (no windows) and one sliding door. This room will be build against one of the garage walls which has a window in it. There is a electrical outlet in the ceiling for the garage door opener which will be used as the electrical outlet for the room. We would like to add radiant floor heating to the floor using hot water from close by boiler.
To build a 2 car detached garage with double wide garage door on the lane and a single garage door opening to the yard. Power for garage door openers, a few outlets and lights. Some extra space for a workbench would be nice but no larger than 24x24. We are on a tight budget so using cost effective materials vs higher end materials is what we are looking for.
My gate was struck by a car and need to be fixed. The damage are listed below and shown in attached picture.
Metal plate fell off from the gate
Control arm damaged internally and need to be replaced.
One anchor of control arm is cracked
Garage gate was dented by flying debris.

Old house on 50 foot wide lot in Vancouver, BC. Lot backs onto lane shared with commercial buildings. Currently has a two car carport but is leaning due to growth of a large adjacent tree which is pushing on side of roof of carport. Carport has concrete slab slightly cracked. Would like privacy from laneway with combo of new garage and high fence or any other ideas. Budget is also important here.
We have a roughly 20'x20' concrete slab in our back yard where a garage used to be. We would like to build a new garage on the spot.
The cement is badly cracked and uneven, but I think salvageable. We would like it to be a 1 car garage with room for a workshop. As such we want to run electricity and water, insulate and ventilate, get as much natural light as we can and make the space as versatile as possible.
The most unusual aspect of the build is we are interested in it having a green roof. We like the insulation and longevity factors of a green roof as well as the aesthetic value since we will be looking down on it from the house.
Current garage is 22.5' long, 12.5' wide, and 13' high at the peak. The roof is gable style.
There is an existing cement pad, with some cracks. Current age is maybe 50 years.
The siding is quite bad on one side. Some of the framework may be ok. The roof needs replacing.
We would like to replace, or retain any useable frame to build a new garage.
Main features would include:
- garage door on facing the lane
- locking door on side
- a couple windows or skylights
- two sinks and running water
- some kind of heating
- some shelving storage
- space will be used for small home business
- hardy plank or wood siding
We tore down our garage 20 years ago to make a larger garden. we left the foundation, added a 4th wall, and filled it with sand and put some soil and a lawn on top. We are now wanting to build a garage for storage purposes, but don't want to spend more than we have to as we aren't interested in a lane way house, just extra storage!
We have a 2 car garage that we want to park a trailer in. The trailer height with air conditioning is 9' 5". The garage interior height is 10'. The garage door is only 8'. The big problem is that on the outside the height measurment from the top of the eves is 9' 5".
It looks like we need gable cut into the garage to increase the height with a steel header plus panels added to our garage door and a modified garage door opening system.
The front of the garage has vinyl siding that has been painted so easy to add on to. The door is only 5 years old so also panels would be available.
Roughly 24x24'. Want 12' inside height for car lift and perimeter mezzanine type storage but city has max 12.1' bylaw for flat roof accessory building, creative solutions sought. Survey scheduled for mid August to confirm location and size. Possession of property end of August. Want garage up and closed in before November 1.
I'm looking to build a new 1 and 1/2 car garage with direct lane access (about 400 sq. ft.). Simple single gable design with one vehicle door, one man door, and two or three windows. I do not need it plumbed, but obviously need electrical. Materials include horizontal wood siding, asphalt shingle roof, wood or metal man door, vinyl or aluminum windows. Interior finishing to be paint ready drywall. Will need concrete foundation and/slab. Single vehicle garage door. Nothing to demolish as area where garage to go will be vacant, except a 20' long cedar hedge will need to be removed. I am looking to do this work this summer, if possible.
I am planning to have a new single car detached garage built this summer. Nothing too complicated -- a pitched roof, wood siding to match my house, windows, electrical and possibly plumbing if not too difficult. I wouldn't mind if it was slightly bigger to give me some workspace, though still smaller than a double garage. I have not had it designed, nor have I obtained the necessary permits. There is no existing garage to demolish, nor is there an existing foundation to use. It's starting completely from scratch,
I bought a 60-year old house in July 2008. Now I got a City Hall's removal order of my carport, saying that the carport was built without permit or approval. I want to know how much it will cost me to remove the old one and build another one. The detail of the carport is like followings. The carport shares a common wall with a small standard single garage, side by side. On the other side, is a 56" wide shed along the outside of the carport. This side is all covered with wood board. The side facing property is covered with windows and a gate. Only the side facing the lane is open with a big steel gate. I found out that the provious owner put a tilted roof on a flat roof. The flat roof is about 12 feet from grade. The top of the tilted roof is about 15 feet from grade. The carport itsself is about 14 feet wide and 23 feet long. City Hall said that the original approval was a ten feet high carport. Is there anybody can tell me what to do and how much it will cost me? Thank you very much in advance.
I have one of the smaller Vancouver lots 33x93.5 and I would like to build a small/mid size car garage in he range of 12x16 or 12x18 in the NW corner of my lot off an alley. It would be your standard box with a couple windows, door and garage door. It will be used mainly as a workshop so there would have to be more than average electrical outlets along with 220V.
