re-design of trusses and raised peak.... side wall height remains but useable ceiling height (2/3rds of garage width) increased to 3.3m

6m roller door

length increased to >7m

It 'feels' pretty big when just standing in the foundations LOL.

Founds are laid, and block work up to DPC/Floor level, back filled and ready for poured floor

not really.


Mostly the beam.... its not going to be an issue (as far as I can tell)... and I'll still have what should be about 2.2m clearance under the door. It's just a bit 'normal' for the width and internal height in my opinion. I'm not going to ask for it to be changed though, as it will do as is. Just me being picky.

Popped past our old house and had a sanity check of my old garage (very similar build) and I cant even reach the beam - so a big van could get in there no problem.

Floor is down now, and all block work in finished. Roof is nearly complete (gutter and some trims to do). Rendering and joinery after that... but I guess the focus just now is the kitchen extension

Bike storage...

On the side without the ramp I'm thinking about storing bikes from the ceiling Laughing

Any thoughts on this? Simple pair of linked 'hooks' on pullies, tied off somewhere out the way. Bit of a disaster if they fell and there was a car below though :/

I was worried of falling bikes too so went down the route of these:

https://www.evanscycles.com/topeak-dual-touch-extender-EV185484?esvt=1216-GOUKE254636&esvq=&esvadt=999999-0-37846-1&esvcrea=61235017856&esvplace=&esvd=m&esvo=EV185484-NA-NA&esvaid=50080&gclid=CNGCydvzvs0CFcWVGwodJZAL_w

They secure by screws top and bottom and are solid. It does take up wall space granted but the bikes won't fall off and you can get two up on the wall with no issues. I still have one sitting around here if you want a gander.

why not that above picture but the bikes against ceiling like that - so rather than hanging at a tangent to ceiling parallel.
