    This is what im starting with, its a 200 year old 8x5m barn (Est 1798) its a shame to knock it down really, but its delapidated, you can see by the pictures its past saving, the walls are damp and its not very race car.

    So its coming down.

    The Plan is to build a 10x10M garage in its place, just single skin block, with a bit of storage at the front of the garage and enough room at the back of the garage to jack a car up fully on a 2 post lift, I have had the plans drawn up, applied for planning permission and it is just in the final stages before acceptance.

    The garage will be 'rotated' from its current orientation now so the gables will be front and rear instead of side to side, this will enable me to drive a car in and on to the 2 post lift, instead of having to manouvre sideways to get it on, as I am using the eaves height to enable this.

    This week ive started the laborious task of pulling the slates off one by one, every little helps and it turns out this is welsh slate, as I asked a roofer who is a mate. So its probably worth a couple of quid a slate, Ive got about 500 or so, just over.

    Are none of the walls salvageable? It seems such a shame to knock it down, although I don't know where you are and maybe buildings like that are commonplace in your neck of the woods.

    Would you not benefit from cavity wall construction for the new garage?

    I'm guessing you've seen my Garage Build Thread, it didn't cost much more to do everything in accordance with building regs as if it were a habitable room. Although mine has the "advantage" of being attached to the house, this will add value when selling up as a new owner could knock a doorway through and suddenly the size of the ground floor is doubled!

    I guess the value of land and space in your area will determine the methods you follow, but for me the difference in cost between building a "garage" or a "room" was only £4000 and although I personally wont benefit from that unless I lose interest in cars, it must be worth more than that cost on the value of the house.

    Slate is a Penrhyn, would of been worth more if you’d ised a slate rip. Feel free to post the timbers to me :D

    Seems absolutely savage to knock that building down to replace with the bland replacement you describe? Those stone walls and roof slates / timbers are well worth preserving. :(

    I get the fact the building has value as it is. We have not long moved here, moved in in may, but at the end of the day the barn is too small and too knackered for what i want, i want a much bigger garage. Land is not at a premium round here like it would be down south. My garden is 45m long and im fulfilling my dream of a huge workshop, so ive had the conversation with myself and this is the only way to go. My house is built from the same stone and i will be cladding the front and side elevations in the stone again anyway so it will retain the original feel.

    I loveto re furbish and re use things in the house and enjoy DIY although i am fully self taught in all respects.

    I bought a slate rip but it didnt seem to get it off as cleanly as pulling out the nails with a claw hammer? Are the timbers worth anything second hand?

    Digger arrived friday so I started work.

    You can see how damp the barn was to start with.

    So it had to go.

    Didn’t take long before the roof was gone and I could start on the walls.

    Im keeping all the old stone as the building front and side elevations will be re-faced in this, there’s probably over 20 tonnes I rescued here by hand.

    Unfortunately yesterday I ran over one of the large cobbles with the digger and popped one of the hydraulic lines off the blade. Not long after that the digger shat itself… so I had to stop.

    You can bet your bottom dollar ill be stung for the repair.
    But we will see.

    The slab is 80% ripped up and the walls are 80% down too.
    I have had word from a mate that he may be able to get a 5 tonner tonight, so we will see if that turns up. I should be able to get finished quite quickly with that!

    You don't ***** about :roflmao:

    Very much looking forward to seeing the progress pics and final result. Would love to do something like this, but sadly where we are (south east) if a space like that existed someone would have already bought it and put a block of flats there.

    Wow, can't wait to see what you do. I am looking at building a 6x5m garage on a shoe string in the near future so may pick up a few tips.

    Yeah, its one good thing about living up here. We have friends and family in London/Kent so we get to go down south every now and again and enjoy the big smoke, but I love it up here its quiet and cheap :muttley:

    Iam on a shoe string (kinda) and still want it to look good and of course be as safe as possible. I cant do anything for the next 4 days as I am on a trip to London to see my wifes family. Next week we will all kick off again... Hopefully with a 3 or a 5 Ton digger! That 1.5 Ton diddly thing was making hard work of the old slab.

    On a positive I found a 4.45mx2.4m steel roller shutter door (painted white) on ebay I managed to secure for £400, picking that up on Sunday. Thats saved me £500.

    Been out of action for a week on holiday and diggerless for the remainder. So back to it this weekend.

    Some more pics of the site from last night, I also had a fire to burn the remainder of the conifer trees I chopped down.

    What is the structural form of the garage? Just block walls with timber roof trusses?

    I'm a structural engineer, so if you need any checks on panel sizes, let me know. Single skin block walls are not especially good at standing up to storm wind loads when designed. So a 10m long wall would expect to need wind posts, or piers, or returning internal walls to give it enough strength/stiffness not to blow over in a storm. Also detailing can be important, wall ties to your stone and lateral restraint straps to gables, holding down straps to the roof.

    You may have a set of drawings and an engineered design in which case I'm waffling for no reason, but if not I'm happy to provide unofficial advice!
