Question Need garage ideas

I'm trying to have a garage put up. 36' wide, by 28' to 36' deep, insulated, 10' walls. I've got a couple of quotes so far and they vary by ~50%.

I'm being told steel over post and beam is the most cost-effective.
I'm in Greencastle, PA.
I'm looking for the most bang for my buck.

Any ideas?

Contractors are welcome to pm/email me. Contact info is in my profile.

Thanks!

These guys look pretty good: Steel Buildings | Surplus, Storage Buildings, Kits, Pole Barns, Garages, Agricultural, Carports, Sheds, Discount Metal Buildings, Prefab Steel Building workshops by US Buildings Direct
And they are the only ones that are hurricane rated..someone's garage/storage building was in Katrina and survived without much damage.

Garage
When I did mine in 2006. The size is 12ft x 24ft. One garage door, one standard door, window and loft. Made from pine lumber and the roof shingled. All installed for $3500.

Intrested in the same size. If you don't mind posting, what were your quotes?

What did that run you? was it all done by a contractor?
I am looking to do something similar when I get back to the states. I think something like you built and possible out to 40'-50'x30'-36' insulated with heat and A/C. Looking up to a 50k budget for something turn key.

steel post might be your cheaper route rather than a wood frame.its also easier to build. make sure you use some good insulation materials. if you need any advice on that, im your guy! thats what we specialize in! Thermo Retail Shopping Cart
we also have wraps to help keep the UV rays out. good luck. i hope to build a big garage some day.

we have a 42X21 steel building by carolina carports (Carolina Carports, Inc.).

it was just under $10K total (with tax and everything) and they came out and installed it. they have distributors all over the place as we dealt with a local company here in NOLA that actually sold us the building. we spent another $10k on the slab and flatwork for a total of $20K for the whole project.

(i posted pics on page 2 of this thread)

36' wide, by 28' to 36' deep, insulated, 10' walls
Are you going w/a 2x car deep & 2x car wide ?
I have been told to think of every car/truck generally is 18' long for building purpose
Because my 68 & 70 is approximately 17-18 ft long, I'm thinking my shop will need to be
around 40' deep x 60' long to be 2car's deep & 3car's wide w/a office or work room
built inside the shop, plus I'd like to build a second story for a loft for storage, cleaning up
(not to attract oil & stuff in the house), guess could also stay in the loft too.
Like to see more from others too and pics too please, thx.
