Hi I purchased my house about a year and a half ago. Just realised that the garage is only single brick and that it is 3 metres in height and 5 metres in lenght.

It has a long steel beam going across it and has wooden joists going across the beam. The garage is also detached from the house.

Just want to know if this is safe and would I have problems trying to sell the house in the future?


Appreciate your advice and any further support you can give me.

Safe?

As in a dungeon or prison?

Has it stood up ok to the recent winds?

Single skin structure does not mean it is going to tumble down to the ground.

This picture is from the garden side of the garage.

This is the corner, i dont understand why the bricks are different here.

2 pillars either side of the door

Looks like wall ties

Beam runing across


As you can see there are 2 massive pillars on either side of the large shutter.

Looks like a perfectly healthy and nicely sized garage to me.

Thanks.

The doubts that I was having were that because it was single brick and over 2.5 metre in height.

The other thin was that the pillars either side of the door on the garden side didnt go all the way up.

Also the beam that goes across is sitting on a single brick wall.

Is the roof too heavy for the walls considering the beam and the wooden joists?

The only real pillars that are there are the 2 that are on either side of the big shutter at the front.
