Motorhome Garage Project Started at last

This is the second time around with construction and the last. This was the last thread I did on the RV garage when living in California, now a resident of Nevada. Previous thread on building was https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/mot...ast-83871.html.


Photos of Nevada Construction: Will follow once I figure out why they are upside down

What type of construction are you going to do? How big??


In July 2020 when I was trying to make a decision as to size and what type lumber prices were just starting to go through the roof plus trying to find a construction crew tough. Contacted four contractors, only one came to see what I wanted and would only quote labor, I would of had to cover all the material costs. Estimating prices of wood vs metal was tough but I did get a firm quote on a 40X50X16' metal garage which included erection. It was a no brainer. Put a down payment on the metal building in Aug and it took 16 weeks to get it on site and another 6 weeks to get it up/done at which time the company said that if I had ordered it then it would have been `~25% higher.



Good luck

Wood and Stucco to match the house. Last building was metal but this time more restrictions on building that could be constructed plus wanted it to match the house. I'm tying a 24'Wx50'Lx16'H RV garage with a 30'Wx36'Lx11'H garage/shop. Maybe over kill but doing 6" concrete inside building and outside driveway. It's probably the worse time to build considering costs but it's taken me better than a year to get it scheduled. Since we sold our house the RV has sat outside for two years.

When I finished the garage I was looking to build a 23'X26' shop inside. I looked at the lumber futures and they had stabilized and I was hoping they would go down but they started to go up so I pulled the trigger on most of the lumber I needed.


When I build our house in 2017 the Advantec 4X8' decking was $28, when I built my shop I paid $50, last week at Lowes it was $85.



I'd hate to be trying to build something now.

i just had a small pad and driveway poured for the other side of the yard
everyone wanted us to BUY the concrete truck vice rent it to deliver the concrete
so we only did the carport pad and opted to wait to do the drive and left it covered in mulch


no way i am paying 7500 for 40 x 18 driveway

No doubt. By comparison we had a 32x36 6" deep garage pad poured in 2015. Fiber mesh reinforced with rebar in one section for a twin post hoist. Floor drain. Smooth finish. Cost about $6k.

In a month $7500 may seem cheap.

I plan on starting mine soon as well. I build houses so I have a leg up. I need to find a time to pull my guys off houses and put them on my garage. Materials will still cost a small fortune and the labor isn’t exactly free. I am shooting for 15w X 42ish L X 16H. A lot has to do with the ledge in my back yard. Once we start digging I will see how far I can go. I don’t want to start blasting rock because that needs permits and more eyes than I care for.

Best of luck and keep the pictures coming.

Sounds like a nice garage Ken, we built ours to match the house as well.

Looking forward to seeing it come to fruition.

Pads been done for about 2 weeks now and hoping construction will start in a couple weeks. Guess the concrete will have a month to cure before they begin.

Slow wet cure is the best. I kept mine wet down for over a week, wetting it about every 1.5 hour during the day.

Following along. Looks like a nice project. I did a metal building a few years ago since I could put it out of sight. Looking to spray foam insulate it this year.
