    Not to sound to much like a newbie. Where are you located in mi? How big was your garage and who developed plans and prints for it? Did you get them from lhba? Did you pour a footing or is it all ICF on a rock base? 42 inch depth? I've heard some have incorporated PEX into slabs for radiant heating. Is this an option in a garage and did you do that? You pour the slab after the roof was on?


    Building in the Standish area.

    hello Travman. there's only one garage door on the east side. there are 2 more on the north side thanks

    Awesome! Is there a reason for only one garage door? And what are you planning a loft? Always liked the idea of a Loft apartment above the garage.

    Very cool to see your progress.

    hi there, more corners.
    ICf allowed us to simply and easily erect the walls ourselves (for the garage frost wall and the cabin's walk out basement). we chose 8" core of cement, though they have 10" as well. and there is 2.5 inches of insulation on the inside and outside which makes heating more efficient.

    we used Fox Blocks because the local big box store carried them and we could easily get more if we initially under estimated

    I hope this helps

    Awesome job! I noticed the ICF's on the bottom. Can you help me understand? Is that to insulate the slab better so that it is not as susceptible to cracking with the temp changes??? Or just an easy way to make the footers? Trying to learn, understand as much as I can~~Thank you!

    thanks very much, Rockinlog
    we will definitely have to keep safety in mind. it was easy to remember to be safe when we were doing the roof work. now that we're on the ground (for the most part) we'll have to remember its just as important to stay safe on the ground!!
    happy building
