Before building this, I had to move my truck about 8 feet, straight to the right. It was too close to the fence, and the city wouldn't allow me to build this any closer to the property line. After that was done, I stuck the 4X4s deeply into concrete, and then went to town. I wanted small windows that no one could crawl through, and I wanted them up high so the light wouldn't be right in my eyes. The roof was constructed out of 2X10's, 20 feet long. It was not fun getting them over the cab of my truck. Of course I wouldn't ask for help, and as it turned out, I never needed any with this project. The first siding I stuck on it was much appreciated by termites! I had no idea there was such a healthy population! They got between it and the sheathing and had a grand old time. They also loved the house just over the fence. All the framework on my garage was treated wood, so they left that alone, thankfully. I wanted something different for a garage door. I didn't want an overhead door because I knew I would have the door up a bunch at night time, and I didn't want the lighting being blocked out. Sooo.. I thought I'd make a bi-fold door, but have it open horizontally with weights to counter balance it. It works perfect, and some day I will attach an opener to it. Give a bit extra shade, as well. I also made several louvers that are next to the windows so heat ventilation isn't a problem. I'm happy with it anyway. I'll be even MORE happy whenever I get a concrete floor in it! Then I can install official wiring and put away the very long extension cord that powers it currently.
