Question

Hi All, I am trying desperately to find a two car 24x30 detached garage 'kit' to build. Everyone I talk to says Menards and Home Depot sell a kit, well I talked to them here and they say no, they don't have one... Does anyone know of any garage kits available in the midwest? Thanks for any feedback...

Check at you local lumber yards. Some of the larger ones (like Meeks) sell them. You might check into just buying the material and building it yourself.

You can buy "kits" at Menards, and if you choose one of their "kits" they will have the exact bill of materials of what you need, that you can purchase.

Try this link

The 84 plan is a pretty good basic plan that you can redesign to your hearts content. It will give you your joist spans and foundation plans and you can photo copy the drawings, customize, and take them down to the local building department to get a permit on your own, if you need one in your area. Also, any good lumber yard ought to be able to do a materials take-off for you and give you an estimate free of charge. Just go straight to a manager or if you've got to use home depot, go to the pro desk.

It's not a kit in the sense that the parts are cut and tab A slips into slot B, but a garage is pretty manageble project. As long as you can manage a skill saw pretty well, you can build a garage. The only really tricky part is figuring your roof, but we can help you with that

HD has them - you go to the millwork desk and they will create with the computer and print you a BOM, then deliver.

You can line-item customize things from there.

Good luck.

What about using a kit like these from Northern Tool and Socket Systems:

http://socketsystems.com/

Note that the Northern Tool kit is only good for 10' wide and uses normal 2x4's. The SS system uses 6x6 timbers.

Any other building framing kits like these for a 16'x24' garage/shop?

Thanks,

Al

Holy friggin cow, where is that company out of??!! Why in the world are the smaller more common sized garages so darn expensive??!! The packages around here cost me about $7/sqft but I often delete a bunch of the homecenter garbage and upgrade to better windows/siding/shingles for a total of $8 sq ft.

I cant believe the menards in you area does not have these packages? Sounds very very odd IMO!!
