As most of you know I am a building contractor. I just recently completed this 32 x 44 x 11 stick built garage for a customer. The garage sits on a floating slab and 2 courses of block for the wall, a center drain exiting to the outside of the foundation is provided.. There is some sort of a ordinance about height for this area so the maximum height I could build was 11". We used 9' pre cut studs for framing the garage to remain within that height. Walls were then sheeted using 7/16 o.s.b.
I was then able to set the trusses with the help of a crane. If a building is more than 24' wide I always get a crane to set the trusses, for me it is just a much faster way. We can set and brace all the trusses on a building of this size in less than a hour with the help of a crane and it is much safer.
The roof was sheeted with 5/8 tongue and groove o.s.b. with 1 foot overhangs all around the perimeter of the roofline. Next 15# felt is tacked down and then shingled using architectural "shake" style shingles.
All the windows and entrance doors are set prior to siding and soffits/facia. For the soffits I used aluminum vented and aluminum 6" facia. Double 4 Vinyl siding completes the exterior. I do not personally install overhead doors ever since I had a accident with a torsion spring overhead install that just about tore off my left thumb. I now hire a garage door installer to do that part of my builds.
(* As a side note,for some reason anytime I use pictures that show vinyl siding and roofing they seem distorted. On my webpage it is the same for those pictures, so I apologize for the distortion.*)
