My collection has out grown my storage area, so... a new 16'by 10' building has been added to my existing garage dedicated for my rides. It will be heated and air conditioned and will hold 12 restored machines.IMG_1829.JPG IMG_1830.JPG

Just kidding, awesome tractor garage you've got there. :thumbs:

That's nice. A couple of questions. Did you just extend to the existing garage & how are you getting from one to another. I was thinking about another shed like a 12x24 or doing what you done. I have a 24x30 garage & was thinking about extending it out the back about 12' with just an entry door going into it from inside the existing garage. I would have a larger door on the extension for moving tractors in & out. I was just sitting in the LR the other night with a 12x24 template trying to figure out the best placement of tractors & implements. I think I like your plan of the extension. My figures show I would get more storage per dollar. Keep us posted.

Its a separate addition to my existing garage which I knocked out an 8' opening to go from one to another I will have two 8' garage doors and an entrance door. The floor will be poured cement. With the foundation and brick work windows roofing and siding 8,600.00

with labor, not bad.

Not bad at all. My 16 x24 was $5500 with a wooden floor, no siding, and no labor!

That's nice. You can never have too much garage or too many outbuildings. It's going to be cheaper to extend an existing shop--you only have to put up three walls, not four. I've been kicking around putting a shed roof addition on my shed.

I think I would do more than a man door between the two. I like the garage doors between the two. For a couple of reasons. One a swinging man door takes up space on the swing side of the wall. I think it would get old pretty quick moving stuff around the outside from one room to another. Especially for you northern folks that get snow on a regular basis.

My existing garage is my wood shop/tractor repair area. I can't loose any wall space in there to accommodate a garage door. What I had in mind for a pass through door would be a pocket door. I might consider it wide enough to move a tractor through.

Sawdust, a pocket door is an even better idea.
