Default Show me your Detached garage

Thinking we will be starting a detached garage/inlaw suite in the next couple months . I would love to see some pics of what you all have done/built . And if you don't mind sharing a ballpark cost of the project that would help . We are in planning / budgeting stage so any advice info appreciated . Especially pics . Leaning towards a traditional 2 or 3 car garage with apartment upstairs . Originally planned to have apartment downstairs but the space we are working with and general logistics suggest the in law suite upstairs . If it is ever needed for family and the stairs are a issue we would put one of those stair lift rails in . Thanks in advance .

subbed.

What I have in my mind for my house is a 2 1/2 bay, that looks somewhat like the below. Replace the double dormers with shed dormers off front and rear. Stairs going up immediately inside the man door, which will be at least 30" wide...possibly 36". In addition to the double garage doors, planning to do a double opening standard door in the rear corner under the stairs so that the mower and golf cart can come in and out there without moving vehicles. A work bench would also go under the stairs. Bays will be a minimum of 30' deep, and wide enough to open doors without hitting the vehicle next to it. If I can make it look right, 10' x 10' doors. Don't have any desire to keep the boat in the garage, but the ability to back it in to work on it would be nice.

No clue.....that's why I subbed to the thread!!! I'm hoping about 40K or so....with no provision for finishing the upstairs. In my case I have no intention to ever finish the second floor, but want to frame it so that such is possible should the need ever arise for ourselves or a future owner.

I will post a pic of what my wife likes and she was told would likely be 40-50k if leaving unfinished inside . My plan is to get everything perfect and finished outside and then slowly at my pace (and budget) finish the inside . My hope is right there with you that it can be done in the 50k or less range .

This is more what the wife is after. But seems it would surely be pricier than 50k the one auto posted seems much more inline with that budget

With construction material prices like they are right now that would cost you well north of 40-50k in NC

Yeah construction material costs are as ridiculous as I recall seeing them . We likely wont break ground until 1st of the year ... Hoping things settle down a bit by then for sure .

I built a small metal carport a few weeks ago, it was the same price as last year. Wonder if using metal framing and metal siding would be the answer. May not look as nice or match house, but highly functional nonetheless.

We did a 46' x 64' almost 20 years ago next the house. There is 700 sf Apt., 500 sf office, plus laundry & full bath. Work shop area is 30' x 64'. A big part of the puzzle is 16' eve height & custom "clipped" trusses using pole barn construction. We actually have 3 levels (the top is storage only) Obviously there ae a few things I would have changed, but all in all, it has served us very well

I don't have any pics of mine but will add this. Make it as big as you can afford or your local requirements will allow.
