It Starts with Design

We have several prepared designs to choose from. These can be customized, or we can custom design to suit your needs.

Once the design is chosen, we provide construction drawings to the local building dept, for permitting.

From demoing an existing structure, to design and permitting to construction, we  handle all the details.  Your project is very important, and we treat it that way.

We  offer 1 on 1 support, and comunication through your project.
Are you tired of cleaning off your car in the winter? Trying to find a place to put your yard tools or lawn mower? Has your basement become your catch-all? By adding a garage, you can have your basement back, all of your yard tools will have a home and more importantly, you won't be breaking your back next winter! And at this price, you won't be breaking the bank either!

Foundations

Currently any detached structure under 600 square feet does NOT need footings, or a foundation 42" below grade for frost protection. A two car garage typically measures 24 feet X 24 feet which is 576 square feet. To me putting up a building of that size in New England without a proper foundation on footings below frost line is foolish.

I have seen concrete move up and down as much as 6 inches in prolonged cold snaps in Connecticut. This much movement can damage a garage, crack the slab, and open the door to future problems.

If I build a garage, I expect to be there 100 years from now. Current codes call for all kinds of harware so your garage or building cant be destroyed by up lift ( winds trying to lift the building from its foundation). So why not protect it from heaving?
