Is that snow on the ground? BRRRRR!

Maybe I am imagining things, but I see walls and roof coming together… Where’s the foundation?

Looks good so far though. Bet you are anxious to get it done!

Thanks guys for your warm welcome and comments.

Woodworm, the walls are indeed ready!

a1Jim, this is an understatement!! I am very happy about this coming together now

dbhost, that is snow indeed! was only around -4c today though! The foundation is where the existing garage sits at the moment. This needs to be demolished before I can begin to put the new frames up. Anybody got a big hammer…..?!

Who needs a hammer when you have a match it will keep you warm while building the new walls. My wife calls that redneck multi tasking

I’m wondering about the umbrella stand in the middle of the floor….....

It’s really a great feeling to get a project like that underway and even better when it’s finished!

Perhaps I’m thick headed here… I see some small sheds there, nothing I would call a garage though. Are you replacing the red structure, one of the gray structures, a combination of those, or that larger building behind it?

noknot – the red structure is a 6’*6’ shed which is getting demolished, and would make a nice bonfire !

dbhost – The one i’m replacing though is the closer of the grey concrete structures, which, in scotland at least, is a big garage!
I would gladly demolish the larger building behind and put a shop there, but I wouldn’t be able to use it from prison! (it’s our neighbour’s house!)

Norv – The umbrella stand was a weight to keep the tarpaulin from flying when the timber was covered
