cottage garage, 20X30

front elevation.jpgI hope to have the building permit on Tuesday or soon after.

Two story with the first 22 ft open and the last 8 ft as a loft. Going to have a thicker pad in middle of the 22 ft from side to side and about 4 ft long in case I put a hoist in. 16 ft insulated door. I haven't decided what heat source to put in but won't need any until next fall.

Only going to have one 30X30 window at each upper end.

I would seriously take a look at in floor heating, if you plan on spending a lot of time in there in the winter. Different sources of energy can be used to heat the water, and you can install zones, so you don't need to heat the whole area if not required. Of course, this needs to be done along with the floor. An other thing to consider is installing a cathedral ceiling above the hoist area for added clearance. JMHO

Second the radiant heat.

I have have in floor electric heat and in winter on weekends keep it at 8*C, does not sound like much but it does make a difference.
I also have a contractor 220V heater to warm the ambient air in no time.

Best investment was to build with 2x6 and ROXUL insulation. Insulated garage door with no windows

Just wish in the city limits they allowed for a higher ceiling so I could have installed a hoist but limited to 8' here.

That's going to be so nice Henry.

Sorry about my mis-info on the wiring. I still find it odd I run here what I do, and yet I had the permits, inspections etc etc.

Fine combing through your blueprints, I don't see a Beer fridge on either floor.

Jus sayin, ha !

nice design henry. i wish i had of put some form of loft in mine at the time. as for in-floor heat i don't think it's a big deal in a hobby shop if your well insulated and tight. i keep mine at about 40-42 f and it takes about 10 min to be up to t-shirt working temp or about the same time it takes to clean up from the last job and get on with a new one. i have seen some good size shops with in-floor and it was a nice touch but they also had 2-3 guys working 5 days a week in there. it's probably a personal choice thing and how you want to spend the budget on heating.
not knowing how far in the boonies you are up there i hope they don't try and restrict you on your height or placement. they tried to restrict mine to 16 ft to the peak and it couldn't be past the front of the house. i got around it with prime ag zoning and it's 16 ft to the ceiling and maybe close to 30ft at the peak but they did try.
good luck henry it looks good.

 i would check to see if there is a height restriction before you spin your wheels on the design. i am hearing more of this happening to guys who i would of thunk they were in the boonies.

The height restriction is 6 M (19.68)to the mid point of the roof. My total height is 5.49M (18FT)

 

Went to the planning meeting and found out even though my application was passed I have to wait 4-6 weeks for the system to process it. They said I can apply to bypass the wait time if I sign a ??(can't remember what it is called) form saying I can start the build but if something is not right I have to tear it down.

 

Waiting to hear from the temp planner as to how I can get the building permit using the ? form.

Tuesday we start excavation, then send pictures to building department and wait for them to tell us how to proceed (how much rock it is going to sit on), then stone work.

 

After getting an engineers certificate of compaction I can get it poured, hope to have it done by last week in Nov.

 Poured right on bedrock so no compaction report needed for the foundation or the stone infill. I will wait awhile to do the pour for the floor.
