How to Build a Garage Print
Written by Steve Schwettman   

I recently built my own three car 32'x24' wood frame garage with almost no prior construction experience. I am creating this web site to explain how you can build a garage or other wood building yourself.

You can use this web site to help you understand the process for building:

  • A garage.
  • A shed.
  • A workshop.
  • A house (hope you have some help for this one!)

If you are using a builder or contractors to do the labor, this site can help you understand the process better, ensuring that your project is completed to your satisfaction and on budget.

In this site I will attempt to detail every aspect of constructing a framed wooden building with concrete perimeter foundation, including:

  • Initial planning and financial issues
  • Obtaining garage plans, blueprints, and permits
  • Foundation
  • Framing
  • Roof
  • Installing doors
  • Siding and Finishing

I'm still adding articles to this site on a regular basis, and I'm currently working on the wall framing section. I will also be adding more photos and graphics to help explain things a bit better.

Just use the menu at the top of the page to jump to the section that you need information on.
