Great stuff here. It's giving me ideas! I've found an online garage planning tool and have been playing around with ideas. All I've definitely decided is that it's going to be a big honkin' building! When I'm looking at houses/properties around here, it's going to be a trick to make sure I can put something like this on it!

I will try to get some pictures for you but being a part time contractor I have built several garages for motor homes and mini service shops. Most were built with conventional construction 2' of block with 12' 2x6 walls and vynil siding. Most I have had to get variances because of size and height. I have built 30x44, 30x50, 40x50, (2) 30x34's, 24x36 and mine a 30x56 (my lot is only 50'x238'. The biggest issue I have seen is only putting 12x12 overhead doors figuring I would not buy anything bigger then that. Low and behold my friend bought a mh at 12'4" and I bought a fifth wheel 12'10" With his I had to cut header out put laminate beam in and get a 6" extension panel for his door. On mine I had 2 overhead doors so I completely cut header out of one door and put a slider (13'3" tall) on one side. So if your going through trouble to get permits and variances make sure you put at least a 13'6" high door. I really like the 12' wide doors even though I have used 10' wide on some customer request and we have 10' wide on our firehouse things fit but it is snug. Also I lucked out because I can back my f250 crew cab long bed hooked up to my 35' fifth wheel and actually fit in my garage. But normally store 35' salem fifth wheel, 24' pontoon, jet ski, and 23' roo. Have 100 amp service and 4 30 amp rv plugs! Will try to get pictures soon.

Yeah. My door is 12 w by 14 h and the 12 seems pretty narrow when I am shoehorning in there

The hubby and I are think about selling the house...building a BIG garage and build a 2 bedroom / 2 bath apartment inside and have the rest to part the toys. Trucks, morotcycles, RV, have a place to make our wine. Just think of all the storage! Yep.. to live in a giant garage is my idea of paradise. Just think..to vacumm just pulling the left blower, to mop, bring in the garden hose and give er' a wash down. Think how much easier life would be *sigh*

ependydad, per your request, I'm jumping on this thread. The "Toy house" shown in our photo album started in 2001. What was originally to be a small cover for the trailer turned into bigger and bigger. The original building is a 40' x 60', 18' at the eves, 2 - 12' x 14' roll up doors and walk ins on front and back. This building has a sewer dump, 50 / 30 amp hook ups and water. What started out to be, I need a bathroom in there, ended up being a 2 story guest house. House has bedroom / den and a bathroom, tub shower, washer / dryer and small kitchenette area. Upstairs is mostly storage for now as I ran out of $$$ and interest at the time. Shortly after I finished this one, the back door led into nothing. Added the 30'x40' on the back which was originally open on the back. Later I decided I needed a place for all my trailers. This led to a 34' x 60' side wing and a small roll up out of the original shed leading to it. At the same time, I closed in the back with 2 big roll up doors and a walk in. Getting tired of shuffling my welding stuff around, I closed in one of the bays in the 34x60 to make a permanent welding shop. It has 2 roll up doors also. The shop is now an "L" shape. The back section is a wood shop, wood storage, and also houses a tractor and other things. The big original area is for the motorhome, pontoon boat and bass boat. The side wing houses a few utility and cargo trailers and of course has the welding shop. All concrete is 6", there are 7 garage doors on it now. Some asked how I afforded it. At the time, steel was relatively cheap, I was working offshore making really good money (still am), I was single, no kids, living in a small single wide trailer, no bills and a lot of time. If you see my RV shed at my home sweet home place, you can see what I afford now. Prices went up a little. We are planning to sell our home place and move back to where the Toy House is.

I could never afford all that a second time. Older, married, kids and not much time. My house is only 1620 sq ft, so I guess several of mine would fit in there. We moved to pine prairie due to wife's family. However, we're wanting to move back now. Like I told my wife, I can spend the rest of my life trying to replicate / afford building a fraction of that shop in pine prairie, or we can just sell our house and move back there. Easy choice for me.

And to think...our stays outside, uncovered 24/7/365. Its covered.in snow and ice right now. We can't compete with any of you. But the good news is that we've never had any type of bug or critter infestation and its dry as can be inside.

Heck, mine can't even live at home right now! A man can dream, though...

Before we got our newer shed built (20 x 50) at our new place, we stored the mh at the toy house. 120 mile one way drive just to get it. But, like all of them, we get the comments, is it new or have you ever used it. Before this year we were clocking 20k miles a year. Well worth keeping them indoors when not in use if you can. When we lived in the fifth wheel while building our house, it drove me nuts having it outside for 8 months straight. I washed it every week and did more preventative maintenance than normal.

Wow. You guys have it nice!
WEWig-now that is done right!
I live in an apartment complex.
My storage area is huge, but I have to share it! LOL



I know, they are popups, but I can dream, can't I?
