The new garage build

We have two very awesome cars that unfortunately have been braving the elements the past year because we do not have a garage.



However, where the Corvette is sitting in this picture, before the end of November (maybe before the end of October if we're lucky), will be a full 2 car garage.



The garage is going to be 24' X 24' with a single 16' X 8' garage door. There will be a 9' X 8' rear door so we'll have access to the rear building already there (that will be set up for mods and building projects and paint projects). It will be fully electric with insulation while the outside will be designed to match the house:



In this picture you can see the the driveway is long enough to fit 3 cars in a line. You can see where the gf's Audi Q5 is sitting is where the right side of the garage will fit. Where the Camaro is currently sitting, we be part of where our new 25' X 25' concrete driveway will be. They will level down the ground with double wide access to the driveway:



The bush will be removed (unfortunately our little group of furballs will miss it)

We also have purchased this nice little set up:



Just some specs for the security camera system:
  1. 8 cameras
  2. 8 channel DVR
  3. 500GB Hard drive
  4. Night vision capable up to 75 feet
  5. Remote viewing access

1 Camera will be positioned inside the garage while 1 will be positioned on top of the garage over the driveway.

Where the other 6 cameras are positioned will be up for discussion with the gf.

Here is a picture from the back edge of the lawn for another perspective:



The contract has already been signed so right now we are waiting on the permits and variance to begin construction. I figured I'd start this thread so you guys can keep up with progress as it moves along.

I think I would die without a garage lol!! That's almost a shame that those beautiful cars have to stay outside, but I think the cement driveway will be a huge added plus. I have a pole barn, but gravel driveway so it still sucks.

Good planning except for the camera. You need to make sure they're outdoor rated cameras AND you can't just pop them on top of the roof. Ensure they're under the eave somewhere to protect them from deluge storms/snow/ice etc. They'll last longer. And I'd use TWO cameras in the garage. Complete coverage for the entire garage if possible. You don't want to have blind spots where you can't see windows/doors.

And if POSSIBLE...garages are like houses. Plan one size, then go up a notch. I'd go 24 x 32 minimum if you can. You'll thank me later.

We can't go bigger than 24 X 24 due to town ordances so we went as big as we could.

As for the cameras, so far we only have 2 definitive locations planned. The other 6 will be planned as things start to get completed so we know appropriately where to place them.

Just got the word, the town meeting for variance and permit approval is next Tuesday 11/26. Shouldn't be an issue for approval, then the ground breaking can proceed.

Application for variance APPROVED!!!

So now we're just waiting on the township to print up and mail to us the formal permits and then ground breaking can begin.

UPDATE:

Zoning board meeting has already taken place. Contractor has submitted formal paperwork for permit receipt. They said they usually get the permits back within a week, then the contractor himself will contact to schedule ground breaking.
