Hi all. I just found this forum. I recently purchased 4 acres of land in western WA outside of Gig Harbor. In the near future, I will have a well installed, then a septic system. I then plan to build, by myself, a stick built garage/shop with living quarters above. I will attach a link which shows kind of what I am after. Since I am out of state right now, and cannot visit lumber yards, I am wondering if someone can give me a PPSF ballpark for my materials costs. I'd like the footprint to be at least 24' x 40'. I want two pull through stalls with doors on both sides. I'd like the ceilings to be 12 foot in the garage, and at least 8 foot walls upstairs with an exposed beam open ceiling. I will have dormars on both sides of the pitched roof upstairs to bring in light. I'd like to put a balcony with french doors off one end. This is the closest example I can find online, but I would modify it.
EDIT: First, I posted this in the wrong area. Can a moderator please move this to the "Building and Construction" area? Secondly, I just read the sticky about not asking for estimated costs. OOPS! I do not mean to offend anyone, and am just trying to figure how much money I need to save to pull this off. I already have well, septic, and concrete costs, just not materials to build the structure myself. Thank you.
