Awesome!!!

As they say, it's cheaper to build up than it is to build out.

I've been trying to build one like that myself on our back acreage but the wife knows it would be that last she'd see of me.

That is awesome! Being a single guy I would love to have a Garage Mahal with a small apartment above it!






I think I'd become single to live in that. Awesome!

Bill - that is AWESOME!! How far is it from Ludington? Maybe we can take a ride up there next summer when we come to visit for our annual week on the lake. Actually, I think we are going to spend 2 weeks in a row. Just can never get ehough of it.

Man - that is sure nice.

Looks Great! Keep plugging away! What kind of heating set up are you going to use?

We're going with a Rheem LP furnace and central air along with a wood stove. I checked into geothermal heat, but it cost too much.

Eric, you should try to do that next summer. It's a 130 mile north of Ludsville. Maybe we'll have finished it by then. Antrim County (where we're building) is right up your alley. It sports "five-hundred square miles of watershed." Check it out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elk_River_Chain_of_Lakes_Watershed
The lake across the road from us is chuck full of walleye! And Torch Lake has the most beautiful colored water! Guaranteed, once you visit there--you'll say goodbye to Ludington as your prime vacation spot. I think you can go 30 plus miles one way in your boat through the lakes and canal system before hitting a damn. Torch Lake alone is 26 miles long. By the way, I知 definitely in the market for a power boat to put in one of the garage bays beside the Chally.

Bryan, I知 sure I値l regret all the stairs someday. I must have already gone up and down them 500 times. We hope to move up there someday. And when we do, I plan to build a single story home onto the garage.

Looking good, I was expecting more of one of those kits you can buy thats more of a barn style. I always wanted to do something like this and may some day if I don't buy the house from my dad.

Awesome indeed! Can you share how much $$ you are into this for? I am looking to do a similar master suite over a 2 bay garage that would be connected by a short elevated hallway to my smallish Cape Cod.

I want geothermal also, but a wood stove/ pellet stove should heat what you have with no trouble.
