Double or single garage, bricks or wood, this practical, step-by-step guide covers all aspects of building from the planning and design stage through to construction and completion Whether homeowners are DIY enthusiasts ready to tackle garage-building or plan to employ a builder, and whether it is just to house a car or also to provide storage and workshop facilities, this book has it covered. It explains the various types of garages that can be constructed, including those made from bricks and blocks, pre-cast concrete slabs, and softwood and hardwood timber. It examines planning permission, building regulations, obtaining quotations, finding a builder, hiring equipment, risk assessment, safety, insurance, how to obtain professional advice, site preparation, and waste disposal. It pays particular attention to building the foundations and constructing a solid base which are essential for all types of garages, and it discusses all other aspects of construction including the damp course, drainage, ventilation, the walls, lintels, joists, the door and window frames, roofs, and garage door installation. Separate chapters consider oak-frame garages, inspection pits, and different types of driveways.
