If you are not in favor of heavy capital brick or small-block garages that require a solid foundation and roofing, then you can opt for a metal one for one car. Such a construction can be done in a fairly short period of time. In this case, the fastening of the main elements can be performed both by welding and using bolts with nuts.
In this article we will explain how to make such a garage, we will demonstrate the drawings, photos and video materials.
Foundation for the garage
It is believed that the metal garage is light construction, which requires a purely symbolic foundation (only around the perimeter, deepening it by only 20-25 cm and approximately the same width). Another option is to pour a concrete plate reinforced with a grid, which will simultaneously be the foundation and a subfloor, or lay factory floor slabs on the ground.
However, in any case, the following conditions should be observed:
It is better to pour the foundation at a time so that it constitutes a single monolithic element. Since when creating a strip foundation, a not too large amount of concrete is required, you can use a concrete mixer and make concrete directly at the location of the garage.
Fastening the trim to the frame
Garage dimensions for Storage of one car is 3.3 by 5.5 (or 6) meters. At the same time, if you plan to carry out insulation (for example, mineral wool), each of these sizes should be increased by 15-20 centimeters.
The frame can be welded from a metal corner of a large section - this will make the structure rigid and durable. All work is performed immediately at the place of installation.
The frame assembly process consists of the following steps:
Intermediate posts along all walls are welded with equal pitch to enhance the strength and rigidity of the whole structure. The pitch of the rack depends on the width of the metal sheet, which will be welded to it as part of the wall.
If the sheets are overlapped, the distance between the posts should be 4-5 cm less than the width of the sheet.
Creating the frame
The external frame is welded to the finished frame or attached with the help of bolts and nuts sheathing. It can be made of forged sheets of galvanized or non-galvanized steel, as well as corrugated flooring. In all cases, the thickness of the metal must be at least 1.2 mm.
On the roof, sheets start to be fastened from the overhangs to the ridge, observing overlapping of the upper sheets to the lower 15 cm.
Welding of the gate
Gates for the garage you can choose any, but the most popular are the swing doors. They can also be welded right on the installation site in a similar pattern: first, the frame of the sheets is welded, then the metal lining is welded to it.
Insulation of the garage
If the metal garage is not insulated, then Changes in weather conditions may cause condensation to form on its walls. The easiest option of warming is use of polystyrene foam plates. They can simply be glued from the inside to the casing between the frame racks.
Polystyrene foam (polystyrene) has a big disadvantage: it burns. And the garage, the fire room (there are gasoline cans standing there, and a car with a full gas tank, and all sorts of other combustible automotive liquids).
It is better to use non-combustible heat-insulating materials as a heater (for example, min. Wadding in the form of hard mats), closing it from the inside of the room with any sheet material (OSB, chipboard, MDF, etc.) .
