    Hi Guys,

    We're currently looking to build a new garage we have a budget of 25k, and ideally want to build it so it's secure and usable all year round.

    I've added a few details of things we ideally want.

    After having our first quote through (38k) we're trying to decide wether we just purchase a concrete one (as these can now come with brick finishes etc) and then possibly just baton/insulate and plaster it out but unsure how reliable concrete garage are in terms of damp/cold.

    If anyone can give any advice one what 25k should/could get us in terms size and quality it'd be appreciated!

    Removal of old wooden garage and asbestos roof:
    New concrete insulated base/any foundations
    Internal measurements: 6x4.5 meters
    Double skinned/insulated walls
    Red brick exterior walls
    Pitched tile roof
    PVC guttering
    French drain/gravel soak-away
    New electric supply (to replace current overhead cable)
    PVC window/door
    electric garage (up and over) door
    Plastered interior with possible roof latch and shallow storage area.

    I built a cavity wall insulated garage with a tiled roof, which internally measures 4.5m x 6.6m for under £10k. Although that's mostly materials only virtually no labour. Its not finished yet but i expect finished will be around £10k
