HOW TO BUILD GARAGE IN GEORGIA
The trick to a successful construction project of any type in Georgia is having in place a good plan before lifting a single tool, except maybe a tape measure. Planning for a garage can take over a year. It is good to think through every detail and getting the answers before it gets started in Georgia. It is needed to purchase or rent tools and heavy equipment, and those purchases required careful research as well as a bit of patience and luck (there's always someone out there who wants to convince to pay far too much for something, and those people always seem to be the easiest to find
New issues on building garage in Georgia are always going to arise in mid-construction. You mitigate your risk by thinking through as much as you can beforehand. Most people will want to skip this info and get right to having a "wall raising party", but planning and foundation work are both far more important and must be completed first.
It is necessary to go through this section carefully, because it raises questions that might not be obvious if it is just beginning to think about your construction project.
In a particular case, a poured concrete foundation was out of the question. It was too expensive to haul concrete to my home, and it was not a job that someone could do themselves. Be sure to give proper consideration to pouring a foundation, it might make sense for you even though it didn't for me.
The wall framing section describes in detail the process of assembling the walls and attaching them to the foundation. We'll talk about things like the strengths and weaknesses of the framing, how important sheathing is, nailing schedules, and spacing.
The foundation it went with was to use concrete block basically as the form, and then fill all of the ports with concrete. The original plan was to buy bags of concrete and fill the ports with that. I later found that this posed two problems. First, that is far too much concrete to be moving around by hand. Second, that method would create cold joints because it would be impossible to pour the entire thing at once. A better solution was to have a concrete truck come up and fill all the ports. One load of concrete would be plenty so the cost was not terribly bad.
The concrete also needed to have debarred installed for additional strength. Some of the blocks needed to have holes drilled in them to hold the rebar.
But before it could do any of that, needed to have a 32'x24' trench dug out to place the blocks in. Well, this process took about 2 months due to the huge amount of rock present in my yard.
It needs something that was capable of digging large amounts of soil and rock quickly. It need heavy equipment auction in a nearby city and found a good deal on a mini-excavator (also known as a track hoe). Basically it runs on tracks, has a backhoe for digging and a push blade for filling in and smoothing out everything. It wasn't in very good condition, but it served my needs perfectly well.
Even though it’s not advisable you can always get your garage installed on gravel something that can save you a lot of money but not as good as a foundation or block footing.
