"Outstanding experience. The property had an existing slab next to the patio where we hang out and grill, so I wanted something that looked nicer than one of those" functional plastic sheds that are about half the price, but, are plastic.
price was better than another estimate I got. Working with
was great, he answered all questions, didn't pull any "sign today and get a discount" baloney that so many companies that send out sales people to your home do (windows, gutter guards, etc.). Estimate was free and easy to schedule an appointment. Best of all, even though I was originally scheduled for an install date about 6 weeks out, another customer had a problem with their permits which left a one-day opening, so
called right away to see if we could be available that day, and he got our job on the schedule in two weeks! The carpenters were friendly, worked quickly, and put the whole thing up in about 4 hours. I was able to save a couple hundred dollars by painting it myself, which was easy, and
told me exactly what kind of paint to get and what brand they used when they painted sheds. Great people and product!

"We had gotten a couple other quotes and decided to go with
Builders to build a 24' x 24' two stall garage. Other competitor didn't" even return my phone calls which wasn't surprising. The quote wasn't the lowest but wasn't the highest. Also, we had added on several changes like an upgrade to the garage door from the standard one and storage spread web trusses with flooring and a pull down ladder. In short, we are happy we picked
Builders to do our project.
did a good job of explaining the process during the quote and worked with me to make several updates to the bid as we added / changed things. We had a couple delays in the process -- none of which were
Builders fault. Our home equity loan was totally messed up by our bank and
patiently waited while we ensured our financing was in place. We had a week of a lot of rain in June which hit shortly after the slab was poured that delayed the framing crew. It's unreasonable to expect a crew to be hoisting roof trusses in a down pour -- it wouldn't be safe. I am surprised about some of the other reviews on Angie's List being upset about timeline getting off and having unrealistic expectations on timeline. There are so many elements like weather, city inspectors (we all know they aren't fast), delay in getting special order materials, vacations, home owner schedule / vacation, and dealing with subcontractors that are delayed by the same things I just listed. Everybody came when they said they would and if they had to miss a time, they let me know my phone or text message. The building season is short here in Minnesota and I know I'm not the only garage being built at the same time. I only expected to be given equal priority with the other clients with projects on going -- I never got anything less than being treated fairly by
, Rich and the crews. Overall, there were 7 trades involved with our garage: 1) Demo crew, 2) Concrete, 3) Framing, 4) Electrical, 5) Roofing, 6) Garage Door Installer, 7) Construction Waste Hauler. I would say all of them did a great job and any mistakes were quickly corrected (all of which were small). Everybody was friendly and answered my questions. A few random thoughts: I had some few contractor bags of construction waste left over from a small house project (plaster repair) and
said to just leave them in the garage and the demo crew took those away with no additional cost. It was nice that there wasn't a big dumpster on our small
property.
use's Bagster which is about 4' x 10' bag and sits on your lot next to the construction area instead of a metal dumpster in front of your house. I liked that my wife and I got to pick out the light fixtures we wanted. Also,
the Electrician made a nice suggestion to wire in a switch and light for the storage area up in the trusses (it was only $100 extra). I never would have thought about that until after the project was finished and now I'm glad when I go up the ladder that I don't have to bring a flashlight with me. Everybody did a great job of cleaning up after themselves. Of course there is an errant nail here and there that you find in random places, but the job site was left tidy at the end of each day. I felt all the subcontractors were respectful of my property. If I had to redo the whole project again, I'd use
Builders again. Even my Father remarked on the quality and he's pretty persnickety.

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.

was very polite when doing the quote writeup. His crew members came early around 6:45 AM and usually got done around 9 am. Which freed them to work on other projects as well. It took more than a few days which I didn't care. They added the rubber spacers that we wanted because our old driveway/sidewalk was buckling/unleveled. When they demo-ed the concrete parts of the garage floor

crumbled (where the rebar was affixed to). They were so so nice to come back (when the driveway was already poured) and patch up 6 areas with concrete. It wasn't part of the bid but they took it upon themselves to take the extra step to take care of us.

All in all looks ok. I am not happy with the overall. I wish he would come back and fix things. When money was owed to him and during job he responded very quickly, but now that he has been paid he does not return calls or texts. When I Di get him to respond it is short answers.

The shed is beautiful and the gentleman who helped us place the order was very helpful in adjusting things to our specifications. It has a peg board for my tools and a potting shelf/table under the window where I can work. A shelf above that has plenty of room for my pots. We personally added a wall of shelving from Lowes.

It had rained the day before the gravel bed and shed were delivered. The weight of the gravel truck and delivery truck (with 2 sheds on it), left deep grooves in the lawn. I would have expected them to
