Question Approx. how much would this addition be?

ok, I live in Ames, IA and want to add an addition onto our garage. About how much would a normal contractor price a 12'x20' extention on to the back for? There wouldn't need to be anylumbing, electrical, or cement laying. Also, the addition would only need 2 sides to be newly framed. Sorry if this doesn't sound exactly right, i'm not sure how to explain it real well, but i'll try to get some pics up asap to help.

Only way to be accurate is to get some bids. As an idea, we got a bid for a 1000 sq ft garage (obviously including slab and electrical) for $6/sq ft with us provding all the materials. We think that's a pretty good deal. Extrapolate that for 12x20' and you'd have around $1500 plus materials. That's about the best guess I can provide.
