The garage is 14X26
the roof is 4X12 to be hand cut.

I have an older single car garage in Etobicoke.. detached.
It appears that it might be leaning VERY very slight...So I decided to Repair instead of tear down. All materials inside (2x4) trusses and roof are in excellent shape)
The siding is wood and in bad shape.
I need to Brace it by putting 4 Corner posts on the inside of the garage in all 4 corners.
6X6 posts and tie it in to the corner double 4x4's.
Then raise the roof which will add one foot to bring it to the same height as the neighbours garage beside it.
Raising the roof will add Approx 14 inches height to it by adding a few 4X4 or other material as you guys see fit
Also redo the siding since its bad and needs done
The floor is the old asphalt floor which is not that great but for now until I decide will stay as is (unless I can get a good deal on a slab on grade) .
Because of city code etc and zoning I don't want to do the new garage project..
