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.



What did you do for epoxy floors? How is it holding up? Cost?

Why bother? They're going to be covered by 4" of insulation. You've probably got a few thousand of them. They're roofing nails...it's not like you're going to be able to just clip them like a fingernail.
No one does that.

Small bump

I am entertaining the idea of either building my garage myself or GC'ing it. Got one quote for a full build (24x24 approx but not square) with a full stucco finish (expensive - $6000) for around $32,000. This includes everything (permits, concrete, framing, finish, electric sub panel, GST) but does NOT include insulation and drywall finish. I think the quote is pretty on par with what I expected but I know I can save a considerable amount by doing majority myself.

My one concern about GC'ing the build is that I do not have a square lot so my garage will not be square in order to utilize the space. I have no idea how to measure the out the concrete pad in order to ensure I don't end up to close to the property lines or break any by-laws.

Is my best bet to try and hire a garage builder to get my pad done, and I will take it from there? Would concrete companies have any expertise in this area or will they just crib and pour what I ask.

Any help is appreciated.

I would just have the property lines surveyed, have utilities located, calculate your total square footage based on your RPR and lay it out yourself.

The city is actually pretty helpful when it comes to codes and building requirements, they are very willing to answer questions.
