Build your own garage for $320

Just throwing this out for ideas for people without a garage and want to do a swap/detail garage or what ever, that is covered and not on the ground

I didnt want to use my single car garage that is part of my house, it only had 1 foot of work area from nose to ass, i would have to open the garage door to do any work so i made this for my swap, this gives me like 6 feet of clearance in front of the car for work

Costco Canopy 10x20 $200

Lows Lumber- $120
5 sheets of 4x8 ply
24 2x4 8"
4 2x4 10"
Couple boxes of nails
A few brackets

I made the floor pretty funny, i measured out the car and where the jack points are are extra reinforced and otherwise studs are 6"-10" apart depending on where at, the front half is built very strong also for the pulling and motors moving around.








For those that dont know, i recently sold my MS3 Bought a slow gas sipping 2009 Corolla and now need a toy car, bought a 1991 240sx and a turbo inline 6 is getting dropped (skyline motor)

+1

I wanted to, but the expense would have went up alot and more labor, plywood only comes 4x8 haha, the easy route! If it came 4x10 it would have been money!
