    You need to be at least a metre from any fence or property line IIRC.

    For the garage door, give Jason a call at Blue Collar Doors in Guelph. Tell him Art told you to call him. Great pricing and a nice guy that will do the job right.

    That doesn't tell me anything. I actually need someone to look at my garage door, so is there a better option?

    I'm half back from the dead. Change of job, new baby boy, side contract work done and trees cleared. Now I have time to build this garage in the spring.

    I'm planning on running a small bridge crane inside to hoist up the toys and move the awkward stuff around. There's going to be I beams in there anyway to span the full length for the half width loft so I'm hoping to use that for one dimension of the bridge crane movement.

    Has anyone worked bought and installed one that works with I beams before? I'm looking for some contacts to price out the trucks and crane bridge that can work with the ceiling i beams.

    Thanks!

    Biggest recommendation (sorry for being late to the party)...concrete floor and EPOXY coating. Cleans up great, get any colour you want. Makes the rest of the joint look super too.

    Did a two-car garage 6 years ago for $650, for comparison' sake.

    I'd suggest putting your loft across the back 1/3 or 1/2 of the shop, rather than sideways along the whole length. The loft space will be much more useable and construction costs should be waaay less. Once you start bringing in steel into the picture, costs go up a bunch, especially if the city requires it to be engineered as part of the permit process. Put a work bench and tool chests, large floor mounted power tools etc. under the loft space. It's also a good spot to work on your dirt bike. Use the open space in front for general use, or other stuff.
    If you want some sort of crane, you could run an I-beam along the full length of the ridge at the top, and use it for both lifting stuff off the floor to work on as well as hoisting stuff into and along the length of the loft at the back of the shop. Basic 1/2 ton and 1 ton I-beam trolleys and cranes are usually avail at Princess Auto.
    Just some thoughts......

    Thanks. Yup, that's the new plan as of yesterday actually. Loft on the back half /third for those reasons. Hoping to run a ridge beam ibeam with a 1/2 ton trolley and hoist. We are thinking along the same lines here. :) With the kids I'm expecting to not be able to move for the next 17 years so a bit of extra cost for an ibeam will help me cope with living in the suburbs for that long. I'll check out the options at Princess Auto.
