Page 1: Introduction
A garage without a floor? Sure! This garage is designed with cost in mind. It is an ideal project for the
person with a limited budget, who does not want to pay the full up-front costs of a completed garage, yet
wants something practical and useable in the meantime. This garage can be built and used prior to a
concrete floor being laid. Hard ground with a bit of metal thrown on top can be used indefinitely as a
garage floor until the time or money can be found to incorporate a concrete slab. Add an iron roof
cover and plywood cladding, and this makes for a very cost-effective car shelter indeed!
Scope of design and limitations
Buildeazy asks that you please take note:
THESE PLANS ARE TO BE USED AS A HELPFUL GUIDE ONLY and no warranty or guarantee is offered or entered into.
These plans make no allowances for extreme conditions.
Requirements vary from place to place and Country to Country.
These plans by themselves, can not be used as documentation to apply for a building consent/permit.
TO OBTAIN A BUILDING CONSENT OR PERMIT you will need someone to prepare the necessary plans and documentation. In most cases, a designer, architect, builder or draftsperson prepares the plans and sometimes for specific design, an engineer is required. In some cases, for smaller projects, the plans and specifications can be prepared by the applicant.
Authorities vary from place to place in their requirements for submissions to obtain a building consent/permit, so check with your Local Authority, designer, architect, builder or draftsperson for requirements in your area. Generally though, submissions for a building consent/permit must usually include two or three sets of full drawings (plans) and specifications. The submission plans must be drawn to scale and include plans and detail for the following: Site; Foundation; Floor/s; Elevation; Roof; Cross-section; Bracing and any other necessary plan or detail that might be required.
This plan set has no allowance for any electrical work or components, plumbing/gutter /down pipes, door/window installation, or any floor.
