    Garage

    I'm looking at a new garage. Wanting something double size, maybe like 6x6.6 or something. Anyone got any advice & ideas about what it costs and whatnot

    If the intention is to park 2 vehicles in it then make it bigger so you can actually walk around them, not squeeze passed them.

    Nah the intent is to be able to fit one car in for parking/work and still have room to move around it and for storage.

    I'd also go a bit higher than standard. Had my sleepout the sfandard 2.4m stud rather than the more standard 2.2 or something for a sleepout. Used Veratile and they were good to deal with and go for something different.

    Just make it as big as you can afford and will fit.

    I used to contract to Versatile and would not recommend Versatile. Might be the region (north Canterbury) but they were shocking to deal with.

    I would steer clear of the cheap kitset sheds like above and the steel frame ones.
    Check the guage of colour steel used as a lot use .4 guage which is thin as and dent easy go for
    .55 and use sectional or roller doors not the shit tilt doors and remember your door opening will be 300mm below the ceiling height. ie 2.4 ceiling height then max door opening is 2.1 high.

    I can recommend Skyline in Hamilton - they put up a double garage plus workshop for me back in 2013. Really good to deal with, happy to to talk through all the options and customize etc to make sure I ended up with exactly what I wanted.

    It'd be cheaper to build a two bay shed with roller doors on the front, than a 'dedicated' garage. If you have a space that is.
