Exterior Garage

2+ car garage (26’ deep, 30’ wide) with 18’ garage door. Needed something that I could get any pickup in (I’ve gotten a 5th wheel, and a big diesel is the only option). Couldn’t get the truck into our normal garage without folding mirrors in. This also allows me to get little John Deere under a roof and a place to store all of the equipment needed to maintain our 50 acres.

Did all of the work except the concrete finishing. Getting stumps out of sandstone was a minor miracle. Garage is pole barn (post and beam) style, but the posts don’t go into the ground. Drilled 12” holes with post hole auger on JD, and wet-set Sturdi-Wall anchors into the holes when they poured the slab. I chose the 3 ply 2X6 anchors (posts were 3-2X6s).

Nice job. I am considering one of these, but I am thinking of adding a small apartment above.

Nice, I want to start one about this size this summer. I would like to have a loft in mine for storage though.
