Question

Garage


I'm going to build a 22'x22' garage, plans call for 2x8 rafter ties 22'
I have some 2x8x17' lumber from demoing the carport. Can I splice the 2x8x17's together if so how would I do that? Also I've been getting some bids on concrete work what a shock. Does anybody know a good concrete contractor in the Ventura County Calf.? Thanks Grandpa

Your local Building Department will check the garage plans for the ceiling joists.

We can help you DIY, but do not give prices here.
