I'm looking to build a single car garage roughly 14ft x 20ft with a room above attached to a typical three bedroom bungalow in scarborough. This would be built on a paved driveway beside the house (if this makes a difference).

Only looking for a ball park estimate at this time.

You're probably looking at 40-60k depending on your materials (brick, stone, stucco, siding) and if it will be heated and wired with electricity will be another factor.

Step 1 - get the drawings for permits.

Depending on the interior and exterior finishing and number of windows it would roughly cost 50 to 70,000 with a set of building plans and permits included.

Thank you
