Sketchup is a good tool to use and yes it is free. Takes some getting used to. You can also get something like powercad (i think its free as well). Are you wanting floor plans or 3D renderings as well? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I want to enlarge my 18"x20" garage plan by 4". Do not plan on owning a truck.Initially I was thinking just put those 4" to one side of the garage so I can put my tool box there, stack tires, bicycles, ect.But now I am thinking of putting 3" to one side and 1" to the length on the garage.Anyone here with a badass garage that can give me some advice?
I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
@themikewoo storing them in your garage would be safer though, no?
Here is the garage design proposal I submitted to my builder. I do plan on building a shed to hold all my yard tools.
Another thing to consider is 2x doors vs. 1 larger door. If your driveway is a straight approach I prefer 2x singles, but if you have a turn to navigate the big single is the way to go. If you go 2x doors make sure there's at least 2' between them, 3' is better.
Good thing to know. Why 3'? To account for opening and closing car doors? Or does it have to do with the support and structure of the garage?Sent from my Nexus 6 using TapatalkIt's for opening & closing car doors, plus it gives you room to stick an upright compressor against the wall between the doors if you ever want to go that route in the future. Anything less and you'd be cursing yourself getting in and out of your vehicles in there.
I have a 22x22 garage upgraded from a 20x20. I wish I did a 24x24/26. Also should of added a sub panel when it was being built .
I have a 22x22 garage upgraded from a 20x20. I wish I did a 24x24/26. Also should of added a sub panel when it was being built but the rest of the budget went to the house upgrade. Using KitchenAid Microwave/range, dishwasher, fridge, and stove, maytag washer and dryer for 3 years, so far so good.I find the microwave/range combo doesn't have as great of a fan vs a standalone range. I'm not sure if this is true, a salesman at ashely furniture said Kitchenaid, maytag, whirlpool are owned by the same company. Electrolux and Frigidare are owned electrolux.
Can anyone recommend a good (and not too difficult to use) design software. I'm redoing our kitchen next year and would like some ideas about how it might look. Possibly removing a wall and want to try different layouts. Someone at work suggested sketchup to start since its free. Alternatively if someone who's into this would like to help I'm willing to pay for time.
