My Double Garage Project!!!......

helo all

well its about time i put a thread up to document the progress of my new double garage properly.
after moving house in may, we managed to fined a house that ticked all the boxes for me and the misses and ive been dying to get started of this!

its going to be a project that i aim to have done by this time next year so please dont expect it to fly up as i work full time and it will be a weekend/evening project
its mainly to house my "big love" the focus RS and keep it safe and sucure and also to be a sort of "working garage" when i come to give the RS a rebuild!
p.s the pics arent the best quality because BOTH of my cameras dont wana turn on!

well on to the plans!

i am going for what i call a "barn style garage"
so a few courses of bricks and then a timber frame and roof on top it will be 1m away from boundrys and be 4.5m wide and 6.5m long making 30sqmtrs to comply with "permitted development"
it will have electric and possible running water down there.

this is my garden viewed from the flat roof of the current attached garage

the garage will be going across the end of the garden with a drop kerb from the road side of the property


this is the area were the garage will go (wich is the far right corner)


and this is the complete area thats will be changed with a hard stand area were the tree is atm!


view from the far bottom corner (were the double gate will be) towards the house
(bit of a mess atm lol)

the plan is to put up an new fence right along the left side of the garden and also along the bottom (moving it closer to my boundry)
excervate down about 6 meters away from the back fence so that the whole area will be lower than the rest of the garden (hopefully drop down about a foot to help keep the height down)
dig footings for brickwork for garage and small retainging wall
drainage
build a few courses for the timber frame to sit on (about 7 courses)
build retaining wall
concrete garage floor and area for hard stand
timber frame and roof on
clad and cover roof
sort inside
landscapeing

just a quick run down of my thought process

so on to phase 1
GROUNDWORKS

this was actually started in augest time as thats when the drop kerb was put in wich can be seen here


dug out and drop kerbs layed, with hard core in fill



concrete layed with a exspasion joint in middle to prevent cracking


then the path was dug up concreted and slabs layed back down


and all done!




all work was carried out buy a local groundworks firm and i am very pleased with how it looks

so today i started to clear the side of my boundry to make way for the new fence!


this is on the outside of my fence along the side of the garden
as you can see there are a couple a lillys growing and have pushed out some of my kerbs!
so i spent some time digging two of them up and lifted the kerbs out ready for me to relay nice and straight!

first one


gone


number 2


horrible stuff!!!

done


so over the next day or two i have got to clear the rest of the end
i will update as much as i can to keep the thread going!

any comments welcome

not at all mate they didnt have a problem seeing as there is another drop kerb oposite and further down the road so it dosent look out of place
and there are no services in the path wich helped

This is a thread i am going to look forward to. I am a keen DIY enthusiast, but dont have the space or money to spend on my house (apart from fixing the shed roof tomorrow)

Well done for taking the project on, and keep the updates coming !

The entrance looks superb, it would have been good to carry that on into the garden.
What are the upper walls constructed from ?

I wish I'd put my garage at a different angle like yours, hope you don't use the bit between fence and garage for any old rubbish like my missus has with mine!!
