    Did you need planning permission? are you in a conservation area? is it bigger than the permitted development size? most garages/out buildings do not require planning permission unless they are causing a detrimental affect the area - or locals in some way.

    Will be interesting to see what you go with. I'm looking to knock the garage down in my garden and build a bigger one.

    My understanding is that if the garage is within 2m of the boundary (which it will be) then it is limited to 2.5m high. I know the total area of the garage must not exceed 50% of the total area around the house. But what does 'around' mean? i.e in a terraced house, does the front driveway get included in determining if you're within 50%?

    I'd be interested in this, as I've got a similar set up. Ordinarily if less that 30 sq m, you don't need planning permission, but I'm in a village and the previous owners of my place kept on adding bits, so the planning people said permission was needed for any future buildings - even a wooden garage. As has has been said, and I know to my cost, an unpunctured damp proof membrane is essential under the concrete base. By the way, I also had a brick built garage this size in my old place, which was a classic small Victorian mid terrace - so way more than 50% of the floor area.

    i have sectional concrete, one 22 x 10 for the car, thats the biggest i can get in the space i have, then i have a 8x12 concrete sectional in one corner for the bikes, then a 12x6 wooden workshop.

    i really like the concrete sectional ones, good price, water tight , warm ish, and if you go no windows and door, just the up n over , as secure as you will get.
    the wooden workshop, was a quick knock together, and its been a treat, nice n cozy, more than the garages.

    but

    get as big as you can, then go bigger!
    one day i wil wake up and i'll be dead!

    Here in the desert it's metal every time, so it depends a lot on your climate.
    Downside is the heat buildup inside a metal building and that the scorpions think it's a great place to move into as well.

    Mmm.........very nice indeed!

    As has been said, go as big as you can, subject to local rules and keeping distaff side happy. The critical thing is that the place you work in has enough space to walk around vehicle. I've bench, vice etc in same area, but maybe ideally this would be in another room. In a perfect world, spare engines etc would be stored elsewhere. Needless to say mine aren't! If you've other vehicles (and who hasn't?), then these can be stored in more compromised space.
