hi phil, whats the score about the height of a garage roof I want too, well I have wanted too higher mine for a while its not a bad size but its about 3 metres high and given the floor size I think it should be higher I been told 4 metres at the ridge but I'm not sure if I need planning too higher the roof any ideas. the building has been there 50odd years so its not a new build lol.
So months have passed with little progress on the garage. The door guy had finally come up a few months ago to measure up but wasn’t getting back with a final price. I’d phoned him and he’d say he’d call straight back but nothing. A few weeks ago the kids reported that someone had turned up and remeasured? I didn’t bother phoning him. Then on Monday at 8am I got a call saying he could fit the doors today!!! “Crack on” was my supply. So when I came home from work I was greeted by this.
So this morning myself and the juniors pulled down the old doors
Then we removed the old lintel (girder) and the steel hinge posts.
Then we marked the old lower walls in line with the new opening width and I cut them out with the 9” grinder on both sides. A quick tap with the sledgehammer and the door opening was full width. It
Some remedial work is required. I have to cut down a 6” block to fill the gaps where the lintel sat and also repair the floor. The lintel was welded to the hinge pillars and also unbeknownst to me there was a steel U channel welded between them buried in the floor. When I knocked out the lintel and posts this broke the floor up.
All easy to do but who knows when I’ll get round to it. The door man still hasn’t phoned me to get the money. I’m in no rush for that though 😁.
