Wow ... that's just about EXACTLY what I want to build. (I would skip the second garage door, but probably add a window or two). Can you give some more info? Did you build it yourself, or who did? What part of the country, etc? And most importantly, how many $$$?

Try a web search for heavy duty tire skates

The requirement to move the Rig out of the way while in the shop for the winter overrode the cost issue
Thank you I've got more than enough equipment to make them my self but sometimes it's cheaper to buy ready built. I can see where you can use them in your set up.

Since I'm starting this shop from scratch i"m going with a 25X14 door but I still like the idea of the dollies!

Thank you for sharing them.

Crabby mike think about a larger size door instead of the singles you've ruled out, one big door is not more expensive when you factor in 2 of every thing else with the smaller doors especially the remote door openers.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We built this one on Padre Island in Corpus Christi, Texas for our 40' coach to hurricane standards 2/6 on 12" centers framing with a 12' X 14" door & 15' ceiling. Back of the house is on the water.

I built mine nearly 7 years ago. Total invested was slightly under $40,000, but I did some of the work myself and subbed out the rest ( I did all of the siding work, installed a couple of the windows, and most of the electrical). For the floor slab and two connected driveways there was 62 yards of concrete used (fiber reinforced, minimum of 6" deep under the coach). Walls are 2x6's on 8" block base. Trusses are only 2x4, but are tied with hurricane straps. Siding is high end single wide to match the house, and roof is 30 year architectural shingle. Coach door is industrial grade with chain operator. Remaining two doors have kevlar belt drive openers.

Depends on what your architect/PE charges for a set of plans.

Base construction costs for materials and labor comes out to $25/ft depending on finishes and materials.

Permiting, surveys, incidentals can add about $600

That's not a garage, it's a toy box. Looks great!
