It's an ugly assed contemporary in a neighborhood full of other ugly contemporaries, but it's ours! At least it needs a ton of work and has a garage the marshmallow barely fits in... Wink



House mod day this weekend? Razz

Well, technically, we're still living in the rental in Sandown as we rehab the new place. Wink

Funny thing... That's the plan. Wink

Sorta.

I need 12' ceilings for the lift, so extending out from the "front" won't work as it's almost exactly 12' from the driveway to the bottom of that bump-out bay window above the garage doors.

My second and favorite option, is building the garage attached to the left side of the house, looking at it from the street, so the house becomes sort of "L" shaped. It'd be a 24' x 32' with 12' ceilings. We'd also frame in a master suite above (that little half moon window on the left 2nd floor is the current master) in half of it and have storage in the other half, as there's not much of a basement in this house. Tricky thing with that option is the rooflines. Don't want to trap snow/ice/leaves/crap on there!

The third option is probably the most cost effective, and most likely to happen. It's a completely detached shop. I would put it on the left side of the driveway, opposite the turnaround. Hampstead limits detached buildings to 750 sq/ft though, so it would "only" be 24'x30'.... Still, way better than what I've got now! But that would also be 12' ceilings with rafter storage above, if not a half loft or something. But again, Hampstead doesn't allow for a second story in an outbuilding/garage, just a story and a half. Rolling Eyes But with this option, I don't need to modify the driveway in any way ($$$) if I have the garage door parallel to the diveway, so I'd have to turn left to get into it. I like that idea... And it's the most economically feasible, so that is the one that will probably happen.

I'm so unbelievably stoked about this, you guys can't imagine! We've got "THE HOUSE" to raise the kids in and really set roots down. Sofa King Awesome. Very Happy

Anybody know any quality garage builders that aren't outrageously priced? Got a friend? Know a guy? Wink

Get yourself a pole barn or metal building. You could likely get away with it setup on a slab, for around 20k. Depends on who you know

I thought about that, but both of those wouldn't "fit" into the neighborhood. And I don't want to move right in as that guy... I prefer to earn the title. Wink

Congrats.   Looks like a nice yard and a good sized home.  

What's up with the restrictions on outbuilding size and height?  I thought NH was all Live Free or Die and shit?  Even in my Happy Valley tree hugger town they don't have restrictions like that.

As for a builder: talk to George Abetti at Geobarns.  I am not sure what costs are these days, but I found the price I paid to be acceptable for the beautiful and incredibly strong building that I got.  George is not a slick salesman, either, just a guy who is PASSIONATE about building his barns.  He's up in VT but builds all over.

Geobarns: http://geobarns.com/

My build: http://geobarns.com/DD-detail.htm

Two of his crew, the two in fact who built my barn, have their own company now: Small Ax Builders.

You just cannot ask for nicer people to deal with.

Thanks for the info, Bull. I'll give them a shout. Smile

Don't judge all of NH by the actions of Hampstead... It's quite a snotty town. ;)They have a lot of building restrictions, but all the neighborhoods are nice and there are no houses right on top of each other... It's aggravating, but worth it for the school system and location. Smile

Start a peaked addition that comes out at you
It'll be attached...can be as high as the house is now if you want
Wont mess with your living until they cut through
Adds all that existing garage room to your add on garage...or turn it into downstairs room
Distance out is only dependant on the $
PLUS....you can get rid of that Niagra falls rushing towards your garage condition when excavating
