New garage construction quote:

Anyone have experience with garage builders in the city?

Can someone guess as to what a standard 24x24 garage would cost in the current market.

I have reached out to a couple companies in Calgary but they all want to come on site and do an assessment but my timeline for the build is late summer/early fall and I don't want to waste their time for something that may or may not happen at all.

If anyone has experience with a builder, can you tell me how it went? cost, service, quality, etc.

Thanks.

Raintree Contracting has a garage package that should fit the bill for around $22k, though I'm sure you could work on the price.

If you're interested in going that route, PM me and I'll get in touch with Kyle (owner) and let him know you're going to be reach out soon

It is true.

Two-storey garages and garages constructed with masonry veneer or concrete must have foundation walls and footings 1.2 m (minimum) below grade around the perimeter, OR the design of the foundation must be signed and sealed by an engineer licensed to practise in the province of Alberta. It is recommended that garages over 55 m2 (approximately 592 ft2) in building area meet these same requirements. That is anything over 24x24 essentially.

Anything over 800 requires development permit + building permit. That is > 28x28.

Random side thought.

I had my garage built by the builder; and I never got it dry walled. There is probably like 50 nails sticking through the plywood in between the studs; is this normal? The nails are sticking out by probably 1-1.5 inches and just completely exposed.

I haven't gotten around to clipping them yet; but just wondering if this is normal.

Thanks

I would not clip them. Those are the nails holding on your siding. It is normal.

Yea I think it's standard to just bend the nails rather than clip them.

i don't think i'd even bother bending them down. I'd just throw some insulation over it, vapour barrier it and call it a day. drywall if you really want it.

Do NOT do this!!!
By doing that you will pull the nail head in tight against the nailing track of the vinyl siding. That will prevent the vinyl from moving when it expands/contracts with changing temperatures. If you've ever seen a siding job where the vinyl is all rippling it's because of improper install and the nails were driven in tight. The siding is supposed to be able to slide back and forth a little.
Just leave them. Put your insulation in and VB like SOAB suggests.

Anyone have standard package prices for just material? I can only find them for Windsor plywood online.

Going to build my own this summer hopefully if work keeps busy enough to fund it. Fingers crossed... (sorry for the hijack )

Go to one of the former Totem, now Rona locations. They do garage packages all the time.

Built my own garage, had pad poured by a concrete company.

24x24, 10 ft walls, 2x4 walls (I should have just went with 2x6, to late now), insulated, OSB sheeted and painted white walls (So they don't fall apart whenever I smash things into the wall) electric (220V 60AMP), retarded amount of electrical plugs and lighting, gas heater, epoxied floors, Just under $20,000.

The only thing I didn't do myself was concrete, electrical and gas line. Dug the trenches myself though.

At this point right now i am probably going to do insulation and VB.... is it bad to cut it down half way? I just want to get rid of the pointy end if anything.
