Is it going to be a French garage or a bilingual one??
Nice going, I am sure that made your day or even month. I will have to go and supervise the construction at some point.
Hey that will be a Mopar garage won't it?...NICE

You have a garage by your house right? Just put a Honda sign on it and leave your toys outside or in a mobile garage.

Your going to love the size of that garage. I did mine in 24 X 34 but turned it the other way so I could have 3 doors. and ceiling height of 10' 6" for my drive on hoist.

The high ceiling is a huge bonus. I went from 10 foot to 8 foot when I moved. I really miss my old garage!

I will love to have 3 doors but 25' is the widest i can build with the space available.

phil all need is some roller skates for cars and you could easily turn it into a 3 car garage.

you'll love the room that you'll have in there. when you start building share some pics with us!

Looking real good, yea I can see why you have to put the garage the way you did. You'll have lots of room for working and yea the roller skates are a must for moving the car around or switching it back to front for working purposes.

Can you have some kind of shelter for your Dart...At least your winters are almost non-existent.

Do you dare or can you put your Dart inside it? In some cases you can wait a long time before the municipality moves.

Why were the footings not placed below the frost line? Your foundation will heave up and down from winter to spring. Around here the building code requires a min 18" coverage from the bottom of the footing to grade.

Must be different building code in Northern NB and lack of building inspectors.
