    I don’t think that’s legal actually? I thought it was discussed, all you can do is have a sump.

    Edit: https://forums.beyond.ca/threads/379...ge-Floor-Drain

    I guess it’s semi legal? Haha
    Its a grey area, some builders refuse to do them, others are #yolo! We have 2 floor drains in our recently built house/attached garage. They go back into the basement and tie in sanitary.

    If you have a detached you're not going to want to tie them back to the house so that video posted above it a good idea. Just make a trench and shop vac it out if it gets filled up.

    i installed one of these.

    Have the outlet reduced to a 2" pvc pipe that runs out underneath the apron. i think i paid 350 bucks for it, and then another 20 bucks for the pipe and reducer at lowes.

    We will see what the inspector says. lol

    My argument is either the water runs out the door, or out the pipe to the alley, does it really make a difference how it gets there?

    I think you're going to get a "we don't care about water, its the fluids that leak from your car we don't want in the system."

    It looks like you're planning for a main service entry at the garage with a sub-panel to the house. That's definitely the move.

    Presumably you're running a second conduit for low-voltage telus/shaw service. Definitely pull a couple of runs of cat6 through that same conduit. You need good wifi in the garage if you're going to run cameras, a wifi-enabled garage door opener, or other IoT devices (deadbolt, door sensors, etc). My zwave network can just barely make it out to my detached garage.

    I'm almost certain this was mentioned earlier in the thread but figured I'd repeat it for good measure.

    Pro move to run that extra conduit. A+ reccomendations here.

    The only other thing I would consider if for some reason you don't vault your ceiling is to run storage trusses. Its been the absolute best feature I added when I built the garage and frees up so much wall space for things like winter/summer tires and sports equipment.
    I agree with the idea of offsetting the door. Thats what I did and I've got about 6 feet as a pseudo workshop even though in reality its mostly tool storage for the cnc, table saw, and mitre saw. I can still go in and fiddle around on the work bench without having to pull vehicles out.

    I'm planning on the best of both worlds. Scissor truss front of the door and about 6' of storage trusses over the "work shop" area.

    What is the rule about overhang on the alley side? Same as any other property line? "Not within .45m" also, can I add a dormer over the man door and cantilever it towards the home entrance. Not sure if I would do it or not, due to blocking more sunshine. I'm worried about the sun not hitting the back yard anymore. Wife doesn't want it on the north side of the yard because we wouldn't be able to see the kiddos playing in the yard out of the kitchen window. Witch makes sense to me.
