Timber Garages – anyone bought one?
Yes I know but its the base thats the real problem.
we have sizeable cracks where its moved and the 2 garages are very tight as they have a central wall where as a double could easily
fit a car and a few motorbikes too!
Foot print of the current pair is 5.2×5.2 metres so a nice size as one garagePosted 7 months ago
I am looking at replacing 2 very knackered breeze block garages with one double. Its not connected to my house and has separate access.
I am looking at timber as i want to keep costs down and the garages at the moment are really bad for condensation.
Any one recommend a supplier as its a minefield i’m sure!
I’m in the south east

I recently bought a house with a wooden garage about the size you’re talking about. What I found was the temperature oscillated massively so I had some big problems with damp and condensation so all the stuff I wanted to protect was going rusty. To fix this I spent 6 months fitting insulation and boarding and now it stays nice and consistent all the time. Remember to sockets and wiring first!Posted 7 months ago
My biggest concern is security, ultimately it doesn’t matter what I do, it’s always going to be relatively easy to cut through a wall and just walk in. I’ve got a ground anchor for the bike but I think if I had the choice of starting from scratch it would be blocks and roller shutters.piemonsterMember
For that budget I’d at least speak to a few timber frame building specialists. You might be surprised, you’re just putting up a big box with a couple of doors so unless there’s a site specific issue it shouldn’t be difficult for them.
No use to you as a supplier, but this is where we got our shed from and it was a lot cheaper than expected. Although I did the foundations myself which helped.
