Thanks for the complements guys.

Updates:

Got a green tag for the electrical rough in from the city yesterday. That made me feel good since I did that work all myself.

I am a little disappointed at my roofer. He was supposed to start putting on the metal roofing today and didn't show up. He said his helpers tied one on last night.

A lot will get done this week. The rest of the windows should go in tomorrow and the siding should be done by mid-week. The bead board under the drive through will get done too. Then maybe doors and sheet rocking the ceiling might get started.
My garage doors are ordered but won't be in until the week after the 4th of July.

I should have some good pictures to post in the coming week.

My contractor's guys seemed to be allergic to working in fair weather for some reason. Wanted to get in one last hunting / fishing / golf trip?

In this part of the world, EARLY October is usually fairly stable weatherwise ... but winter quite often arrives un-announced with a vengence by the end of the month. I can recall many Halloweens with our kids in snow-suits.

The pad area was prepped and rebar was in place for the majority of the month ... and I kept calling and asking "Where the heck are you guys? ..."

They FINALLY poured on the 31st followed by several days of freezing weather and snow ... and the surface of my floor tells the tale. Grrrr!!

Progress through 7/5/08

Got a green tag for framing.
All the windows are in and trimmed on the outside.
The roofer is working this weekend.
I decided to go with a different kind of Hardie siding on the front gable end.

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow. 60K for a turnkey 20X24 garage sounds absolutely outrageous to me. That's 480 sqft compared to my 1,476 sqft (including drive thru). And, mine has a full bath and utility sink.

I don't see how my figure could ever be an apples vs. apples comparison for you. Things will be much cheaper in San Angelo vs. Sacramento. And, the way I paid for this job would be way beyond what would be a normal deal for someone. However, let me explain some stuff and that may help.
I did all my own site preparation and plans. And I also saved a bunch doing all the electrical and some plumbing myself. I will also finish the plumbing, taping/floating and paint myself.
I can tell you that my construction crew has been a guy in charge (whom I am friends with) and two helpers. I pay them all hourly. Occasionally I get charged extra by them for gasoline and miscellaneous expenses. I pay for all materials directly to the vendors. The things subbed out were the concrete work, roof, a little bit of plumbing and garage door installation. Altogether, the concrete work will be about $13,500. The plumber was $2,800 including the $600 payment to the city for the sewer hook-up.
I have used expensive stuff.
Windows were $3,500. The 2 Heat/Cool A/C units were $1,400 together. Roof was $4,800.
Garage doors and installation will be about $3,000.

I still have to estimate but when all the guys are out of here in 2 weeks, It should be at a little less than $70K for everything to that point.
Then comes in/out paint, lights, big screen TV, epoxy floor, cabinets, gas pump and all the other nic-nacs.

After I first read your question, I discussed it with my contractor/friend. He was guessing turn key on my shop would be $120K. I would think it would have to be a lot higher in place like Sacramento.

I hope that helps.

So, do you have a thread started for yours yet? Let's see your plans!
