Custom-Built Garage Addition at Rough River Lake

There’s no shortage of builders near Rough River Lake, but Roof Master LLC is happy to be among the best builders in the area.  We primarily specialize in commercial and residential roofing, but it’s always nice when we’re able to add some variety to our workflow with a specialty construction project like this custom garage addition.

To start off, this Rough River Lake project included quite a bit of concrete work.  First on the list was installing a concrete retaining wall for drainage control.  As you can probably tell from the images, this garage is built on a hill.  The retaining wall provides a permanent solution to directing the flow of rainwater away from the building.  No standing water in this garage!

This site is loaded with rocks just beneath the surface of the soil, so we couldn’t set posts in the ground as we normally would.  Instead, we installed concrete pillars.  With the concrete pillars in place, we were ready to move on framing everything in.

The upper side of the garage was completely enclosed.  We even built a custom set of double swinging doors to put the icing on the cake.

The lower side of the building was left open as is typical with many lean-to garage additions.  I can definitely see a boat, ATVs or any number of things tucked away under the protection of this extension.  🙂

To put the finishing touches on the building, we added matching metal to tie everything in with the existing building.
