A wide assortment of free building and construction information on many styles and sizes of garage buildings. Use one to build your next workshop. Garages are either attached or detached from homes. They are often used for vehicle storage and many end up as junk rooms, make the most of your garage space.
Perhaps you need a little more space that is partially covered from the elements? If so you may want to build an attached carport, either on your house or garage. The one at the link measures 12 x 24 feet but you could adjust to suit your needs.
A garage without a floor? Sure! This garage is designed with cost in mind. It is an ideal project for the person with a limited budget, who does not want to pay the full up-front costs of a completed garage, yet wants something practical and useable in the meantime. This garage can be built and used prior to a concrete floor being laid. Hard ground with a bit of metal thrown on top can be used indefinitely as a garage floor until the time or money can be found to incorporate a concrete slab. Add an iron roof cover and plywood cladding, and this makes for a very cost-effective garage indeed!
