Default Anyone built there own wooden garage

At the back of my garden i had a big brick double garage but it got taken down and just under half the land was sold to make way for a drieway for the house behind, i still have road access to the slab that is still there, basically i want to buy/build a wooden garage to store the cossie in and just wondered if anyone has done it ? as i could follow some plans and build one ?

Hi mate mine come from birmingham somewhere , they charged £30 to put it up (not worth getting a splinter )

it was similar to this , pretty good quality obviously you get what you pay for .

Did yours come with a base and do you keep your car in it ? Is it sturdy and safe

Yes mine came with a solid wood base but mine sits on a concrete base as well , my car will be in there this winter and see no reason why it won't be safe ��

Tbh when I looked into it unless you've already got the tools at hand or can get the hardware at good prices then it's easier to just pay the grand and get it done ASAP.
Check your insurance covers you for a wooden building though or mention it to them,not experienced it myself but apparently some don't like to cover a car kept in one cos of the increased fire risk etc.
There's some ruling about how far it is from your property/the road etc for the same reason.
I'm gonna be building a carport sort of thing myself this summer out of wood and Perspex corrigated sheets as I'm fenced on 2 of the 3 sides already,I love working with wood.

Built this same garage from this guy over easter but mine was 16 feet by 10 feet. It cost me 880 + 120 delivery. I would be very suprised if anyone would put this up for 30 quid as it comes in over 200 peices . There are 120 bits just for the roof ,the side panels are 6feet tall but only 3 feet wide and bolt together. The doors ,windows and roof struts all need assembling. Took me well over a week to do in the rain of course . Would recomend it though ,am well pleased with it. might be worth getting a nail gun tho as i knocked over 600 nails in with a hammer and a electric driver for the 200 screws
