    New Garage Project

    As others have suggested, rightly so, I am starting a new thread on my garage, etc. build project. This project started back in 2013 and is still continuing. The project included additions and modifications to the house along with moving the driveway, replacing retaining walls, quite a bit of grade change and landscaping along with the 30' x 34' two floor garage. Here are the before pictures.

    Now is when the real work started. Removing old steps, old retaining wall, digging!!! and installing drainage systems. The drainage system includes two drain boxes and over 100' of drainage pipes. All Down spouts and all driveway run off runs into the drainage system. The drainage system all runs into a 4' diameter x 16' long piece of ADS drain pipe buried in an 8' deep x 8' wide x 16' long hole. The hole has 2' of #4 ballast on the bottle, then the pipe, then #4 ballast around the sides and cover. The 10" main drain line empties into the top side of this pipe. This creates an underground drainage reservoir. And of course as usual, when digging allot of ditches, the potential is there that you may back into one of them. Well, that did happen, but only once. haha!!! What I will say, it wasn't me operating, at least that time!!!

    Can you explain "Two floor"? Is it going to have a loft? or basement level. Like a walk out basement and an upper level too?

    Garage build!! The garage build started by hauling 29 tri-axle dump truck loads of shale away to make the space in the bank to build the garage. Fortunately, the local township needed allot of fill, so they hauled it away. It also included changing the electrical service to the house. I ran the main 400 amp service underground from the utility pole to the garage. Then split 200 amp to the garage and 200 amp to the house. The service from the garage to the house is also underground. All the trenching for the electrical conduit, I dug with my 1025r.
    The garage is 30' wide by 34' deep with an upstairs (tractor shed). The garage has a 12/12 pitch, so it has a high peak roof, which gives me a 20' wide x 34' long room upstairs. The upstairs room has 4' high knee walls and a 9' high ceiling in the middle. The upstairs garage door is 7'-6" high x 7" wide (high enough for the 1025 with the ROPS up).

    Now for the new masonry steps, retaining walls, landscaping, etc., etc. etc.!!! I dug the footer for the new steps and retaining walls along with all the drainage stone back-fill. I hired a landscape contractor to actually lay the retaining wall block. Too much work for me!! Those block are 80 lbs. each. I worked with them, using the 1025 to bucket all the drainage stone while they laid the block. I used my tamper to compact all the stone behind the walls. If there is one suggestion I can make to anyone that desires to install retaining walls, put lots of drainage stone behind them with 4" ADS drainage pipe at the bottom, compact the stone after each course of block and use geo-grid to tie the wall back into the drainage stone behind the wall at least every other course. This makes a wall that will not heave because of water retention behind the wall or vehicle load above the wall. My walls have been in two years now, have gone through two winters and no heaving and they look like the day they were installed. Yes, you will buy allot of drainage stone. My wife could not believe how much stone we put behind these walls. I don't know for sure how many ton of stone we got overall but, I would guess 30 ton.
    All of the low voltage lighting, including all the retaining wall lights and the step rail lighting is wired lighting, no solar powered. I ran conduit under the step concrete before the steps were poured. The connection wiring from railing pole to railing pole runs through the rails. The retaining wall lights are fastened under the cap edge that hangs out over the wall about an 1". I installed conduit behind all the walls to feed the wiring to the retaining wall cap lights. All the outside lighting is LED. It is all controlled by one photo cell that activates a relay that turns the lighting on all at one time.
    I designed the steps to fit in the space. The biggest problem that I had was being able to get the required number of step risers in the space that I had. The only way that I could do it was to have three steps that turned. I have to say, on paper it looked easy, building it was a different story. It took some thought to figure out how to form the steps and how many concrete pours it would take to actually build them. In the end, it took two different concrete pours to build them. First, bottom and mid level landings. Second, upper steps and three steps that turn and the two connecting straight steps.
