"
the carpenter came around 9:30 am and started to unload his truck. He built the entire shed in 8 hours which is quite impressive given the" attention to detail he demonstrated. I was home that day and was able to watch.
had his son helping him. He installed a window, a ramp and a 10' x 2' loft. The shed came with upgraded premier package. Very nice quality trim on the outside. It's all PVC and wont fade or rot. The siding came primed on the outside with a nice tan color. I'm extremely happy with the results and it was worth the 7 week waiting time!

Angie's Answers

Ballpark number - $30-50/SF for normal garage - in your area, considering need for perimeter foundation to get below frost depth, probably about $40/SF unfinished, $50 finished.

In your area, if you can afford it, I would talk to a Realtor friend (or the one who sold you the house) about how much value a garage would add, and the difference between one and two car - very few houses are built with one cars these days except on narrow city lots, so it might pay (if your budget can handle it) to make it a two-car while you are at it.

Also, a standard 1 car is about 12 x 20 feet - if you make it large enough for a full size pickup or SUV then about 12 x 24 or 12 x 26', which could improve resale value. The current trend is toward 8 to 8-1/2' ceilings and 7-1/2 to 8 foot high entry clearances also, rather than 7 to 7-1/2' ceiling and 6-1/2 foot beam clearance, to handle larger pickups and SUV's with racks.

?

Definitely - if you are interested, there are good videos on how it works on This Old House and Hometime websites, and probably on Youtube too, or google  -  "epoxy floor covering"

It takes A LOT of careful prep and you have limited working time to handle it (it is a 2-component product like epoxy glues and fibreglass resin, so has vdery limited working time after you mix the two components), so unless you are quite experienced with fast-setting finishes I would NOT recommend you do it yourself - get it wrong and it is MUCH harder to remove than to put on. Also, it is important to sprinkle the non-slip material over it at the right time without stepping in it or getting any on flooring that is not yet covered with the epoxy.

Find a specialty contractor for garage floor sealing - normal painters and contractors may or may not know how to do it. Rough cost estimate, WITHOUT moving a lot of stuff in and out of the garage, $1.25-3.00/SF depending on how expensive a finish you get. Keep in mind you will have to move everything out of the garage for a few days to a week, or pay them to come twice (which I have seen done) - to do it by halves about a week apart, with you moving workbenches, tool chests, etc from one end of the garage to the other before they come back.

There are a lot of off-brand products out there - a lot of them are garbage, and some claiming to be epoxy are not even 2-component, so not true epoxy. I would stay with national industrial brand names like PPG, Rustoleum, Armorchip, AkzoNobel, Dulux, ISF - the ones made by consumer paint companies like Behr, Sherwin Williams, etc seem to have a lot of bad press about them.

One thing to consider, is if your slab was coated with a water repellent or sealer, that will probably have to be sandblasted or ground off before an epoxy can adhere properly - for about $0.50-1.00/SF more.

If you are not up to spending $1000 or so on protecting a floor you drive on, you can get Rustoleum Epoxy Shield Concrete Floor Paint for about $40/gallon that, as long as you degrease and scrub the floor well before hand, sticks quite well including over a normal concrete sealer. While the rustoleum stuff is actually an acrylic, not a true epoxy, it does good for the $. The competing latex concrete paints peel and lift off in no time - they are fine for coating a basement floor to reduce moisture passage before putting down flooring, but do not hold up to garage traffic.

I redo the central driven-on half of mine for about $45 in degreaser and paint about every 10 years and while it does not look like a showroom floor after the first few weeks, it does the job of being easy to clean and repels most vehicle stains (except gasoline, paint solvents like laquer thinner or acetone, or automotive spray solvents like brake or carb cleaner, which will all soften and bubble it). It also is not anywhere as slippery as an epoxy finish. You do have to let it dry a full week to avoid peeling from tires sitting on it.

As a condo owner I presume you have checked with the condo manager - most condos have rules about types of finishes that can be used, and in some cases even colors.

?

That is a pretty old and small house to be putting much money into.

My recommendation would be to do no more than box in the carport as a garage, if you have use for that.

Adding a bathroom and laundry room to a garage generally means a new foundation for them, so significant cost for the small added space you are getting. Generally, one would recommend an addition rather than putting those in a garage. However, for this old a house an addition could be equal to the value of the house.

My recommendation - talk to the Realtor you bought it from, or a Realtor friend, about what certain improvements could do to the value of the house. I fear you will find that anything other than a teardown might not add to value at all, because any significant addition to that old a house, and that size if typical of the neighborhood, would make it an oddball house for the area and reduce rather than enchance saleability.

. From beginning to end the process was incredibly smooth.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job providing different color and style options, examples of other sheds they'd built, and ideas for our shed. He was very easy to get in touch with and simply put, was an overall pleasure to work with.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew who did the building were excellent as well. I now have a beautiful shed that I know was well built by a company that values their customers and the work they do.

From start to finish we had a great experience. Phone calls where always returned, the install was done as promised. Every attention to detail was performed. It was a bit pricey, but as the saying goes, You get what you pay for! We would use them again in a Heartbeat!!

Not well. Concrete foundation not square, causing the whole build to be out of square. Sill plate, sheating and siding hang off the foundation 2 to 3 inches. Carport corner post not square and not anchored, off 3 inches on the back side and 1 in the front. Crooked interior frame board waves exterior siding. No wrap, no finished carport soffit. Can see daylight inside around base. Was assured when we accepted the bid that all would be complete. We would do nothing but use it. We had to purchased the wrap to put on before the siding. Contacted

. No payment till fixed. Mr
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
came and said the completion of the build was not in the bid. A miscommunication. Offered as a grand gesture to add to the 2x10 headers, move the 6x6's to try to make it look symmetrical in appearance, wrap the headers, install anchor brackets on the 6 x 6 post, and straighten the framing boards. Would complete the soffit for the cost of the material and labor. Would waive the labor costs if we gave 3 referrals. Our response was for him to complete the work with no referrals. We paid the additional cost of materials. Upon completion of the proposed patch work we paid Mr

the remainer owed

through you and the BBB and used

because of all the excellent referrals. So, these people may be ok with a shed but don't want them to do anything larger. No offers of a reduction in the cost of the building, no standing by what we were assured by the salesman as a complete project and not a hint of that money back guarentee. Now we are stuck with an expensive bungling building. Definitely not a good experience.

I chose
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
to build a small shed on the side of my
property after seeing them receive a ton of praise on my neighborhood
Facebook page. They were prompt to come out and give me an on-site
estimate that thoroughly detailed all aspects of the build. They
specified high-quality materials (
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
-plank siding, for instance) and
answered all my questions without a shred of sales pressure. Though I
wouldn't call it an inexpensive product, you get what you pay for. My
6x10 shed was built in less than 5 hours, including the time it took to
paint it the perfect shade to match my house. It looks outstanding and
is build extremely well. The shingles match my roof, there's skirting
around the bottom to keep critters out, etc.
When one of my
neighbors filed a complaint that I was building without a permit (you
don't need a permit to build a shed), I contacted
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
for advice. He
jumped right in and offered to help me by meeting the inspector at my
house to walk him through all the specs of the build. He was under
absolutely no obligation to do this, but did it anyway to help me out
and ensure I was happy with what they had built. That is true service
after the sale. I highly rec

Provided pictures and description for moving the shed, but no one came out to survey the job site until the day of the job. I told Colonial there was a slope in the yard (was identified in the pictures I sent) and sections were soggy from recent rains. I requested no vehicles be used for the move. Workers showed up with no idea of the scope of the project. I ended up letting them use their truck to move the shed, the end result was deep tire ruts in the yard, dead grass from the truck tires, a joist almost knocked out, the door dented and banged up from using the high lift
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and not enough blocks to level the shed on the corners - a block was set under the shed in the middle but it did not provide any support and to make up for concrete blocks they tried to level the shed using pieces of 2 x 4's.
I had to straighten the joist, add blocks to level and reinforce the bottom plate with a 2 x 6. The crew was professional and worked hard - but again was not prepared for the job at hand - overall it was not a pleasant experience.

I am not sure there is enough space to tell the entire story of how "over-the-top"
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew do at building whatever you need like he is building it for a million dollar customer.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
is meticulous in his presentation, scheduling, cleanliness, promptness, etc. I can't say anything bad about
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
, his company, his workers. They not only treat your property with respect, they are extremely respectful to us as customers. Having some miles on me, I can tell you how I remember when service providers had respect for their business and customers. How if you went to the corner gas station, they made sure to not only pump the gas for you, but also check your oil, clean your windows (ALL of them!) and make sure you were served with a smile and respect. Now that was a long time ago and seldom seen today, HOWEVER, if you want to see it today...get in touch with

Mr.
Olathe Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
provided a contract for a bathroom remodel that included all tile work and electrical to install a steam shower in our bathroom .
i paid 50% deposit and then 2 other payments to include add on items without a promised invoice. After 5 months of requesting a final bill I received one . He had very little back up and No back up for subcontractors that I had already paid directly for my add owns.He refused to provide me with copies or to meet with me to discuss. I kept very good records.
He tried to overcharge me by over $3000.00 . I proved by way of canceled checks proof of my payments. He never acknowledged or apologized for his very poor accounting practices. Instead he ignored my proof and began bad mouthing me all over our community.
Not a professional way to do business's and very unprofessional behavior. The initial contract that was paid for the bathroom also included all cost to do our project.
His work is sub par at best and is not consistent with his extremely high pricing. I DO NOt recommend this contractor.
