Depending on the type,style, single garage door or double and getting what you want are many of the variables involved. The area you live in also affects sq. ft. cost. As a co…ntractor in North Florida I can say you should expect to pay a min. of $40 per sq.ft. using a contractor(licensed) and you could possibly save 15-20% if you build it all yourself. There are many websites that offer an free estimate "guide" based on info you put into the slots. Do a search for estimated cost of building a garage, and you should get a few good hits. Theses sites offer a true real look at what your cost will be. Too many posts will tell you that the cost should be $25 per sq.ft and these individuals are giving very bad advice but it is based on what they or a friend"just did" and you have no way of knowing what was built. I hope this helps you a little.. I just priced a garage off of a complete materials list in building plans in NC. For a 2 car (24x28), 2 dormers, 12/12 pitch roof, and side door. I based it on contracting out grading and foundation and DIY everything else. I came to $28 a sq ft with an allowance for about $900 in extra material I may need.
Good question! These answers will depend on your location. Theseanswers are regarding southern Alberta-Canada. 1. Garage builders: 22'x24' standard garage with electrical and… gasline $24,000. Adding a "mother-in-law" suite on top it jumps to$140,000 (which would include plumbing). Why? Must dig down furtherto add extra foundation to support weight, rough in the water andsewage lines, installing kitchen and bathroom. 2. Same above size but only rough in the upstairs electrical, gas,and plumbing. (you would build your own kitchen and bathroom andtie in all roughed in utilities. Somewhere around $115,000 with agarage builder. In short you are building a cold room above withyour utilities roughed in for future plans. 3. You become the general contractor and hire tradesmen to pour inthe concrete, frame the building, tie in electrical and gas andplumbing, you don't lift a finger. A lot less than $115,000depending on which tradesmen you hire. Tradesmen from a hugecompany of 100 tradesmen will be more expensive than say atradesmen with his own company of 4 employees who's been acontractor for 30 years. Competition, competition, competition! My experience and education? Amateur. However I have beenresearching, in Alberta, building a detached 22'x28' garage (Noabove suite). 2' Apron, 2 standard windows, space saving trusses(think overhead storage), 2x6 frame, 8'x16' door, 36" man door,vinyl siding, asphalt shingles. 6 local quotes from reputable garage builders average $32,000. Adding together quotes for hiring tradesmen: $19,000 (Concrete,frame, electrical+gas, siding, insulation, and roof) How I'm saving even more money? I have enough experience tocomplete concrete pad myself with help. Will put up my siding,shingles, and insulation myself. Haven't calculated how much I'msaving but this will be far less than $19,000. I'm estimatingaround $14,000. Plan: DIY a. Apply for a standard building permit. b. Purchasing a garage kit with siding c. Concrete slab (4" concrete, 6" curb wall, gravel underneath, and12" excavation in total for prep and level off d. Trenching for the electrical and gas lines e. Siding (plywood, tyvek, and vinyl siding) f. Roof (plywood, tar paper, shingles, eavesthrough, fasia etc.) g. Purchase overhead gas furnace/heater ($500; garage builderscharging $1,000+ installation) Tradesmen a. Building frame b. Running electrical and gas lines (through trench I dug) andinstall 100 amp service, and having my pre-purchased heaterinstalled. (electrical and natural gas permits are purchased by thetradesmen and charged to you in their bill) c. Garage door. I could do this myself but I want a perfect fit andseal and would rather have a pro install it. Your other option is to purchase a "garage kit" at your local homeimprovement store (Here we have Rona, Home Depot, and Totem).However a carpenter who will put your frame up might be able to gethis lumber far cheaper than you could in a kit because he buys inbulk. In my case by using the carpenter I have chosen is about thesame cost. These are all things to think about. I'm in no way an expert or atradesmen. I'm simply sharing with you my results of my research inbuilding my garage. Oh and I was looking into a mother in law suiteabove as well however my neighborhood zoning laws are preventing mefrom building anything higher than 15' with a development permit.Having a cold room above (with a development permit) would also bedeclined. Last note: If you live in a metropolitan center check your localzoning laws through your city or municipality. You might not beallowed to build a suite above. You might be limited to only22'x24' for example.
That would depend on how large or small the garage is going to be. It would also depend on the quality of material used. It could range from a thousand to multiple thousands o…f dollars all dependant upon what is desired. You should probably obtain estimates from multiple contractors before deciding.
Anywhere from around $500 up to over $5000 for very high-end doors. You can get garage doors as low as $300 but generally not worth it. You can sometimes find cheaper prices …at big box retailers like lowes. However, they have to outsource the install anyways. I found that a lowes in Indianapolis uses access garage doors. You can buy your doors at wholesale prices there if you want and avoid the middleman.
Well it depends on how big you want it to be. Normal garage size would be about $8-10 grand.
It varies on what size car you plan on putting in it.

$125 a square foot is typical for under roof renovations/remodeling (midwest) but you'll most likely need to remove the roof (headroom) so i would figure it around $150 sq.ft.…
Specifics matter. Is it a tin stick-up building, is it a woodstructure, is it prefabricated, are you going to use a concretepad, asphalt pad, bare earth or road base for the f…loor, is itgoing to be anchored with a foundation or entirely above ground,will it be wired for 120v only or 120/240v, will you plumb it forair lines, etc.? Details like that matter, and will affect the costconsiderably. I'd recommend you consult with some buildingcontractors, and get quotes from them based on exactly what you'relooking for.
If the garage door window is plastic then the cost should be around 25-50 depending on the size. If the window is made of glass then you will spend around 100 dollars dependin…g on size.
It truly depends on the style, quality and size of the garage you are trying to assemble. For a standard 20 x 20 garage you are looking at at lease $16k and up depending on th…e feature you would like to add it can get extremely pricy.

construction costs vary by the area you live in... plus it depends on how elaborate you plan to build. Lowest would be $30& per square foot up to $50 - $70 Sq. ft.
That will depend on the part of the country it's in, as well as on the state, the city, and the neighborhood in that city.
