We build whatever size you want. Our most common sizes for our Amish Built Garages are usually 24′ or 28′ wide.
(Wide means the truss width or gabled side) and as long as 24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38 and on and on.
We always use even numbers but it really does not matter if you want an odd size for example 25’x27′.
It may take a little longer to order the truss.
Blueprints take about (3) weeks, permit application takes about (2) weeks and we schedule starting (2) weeks after the permit is issued.
That’s (7) weeks to start. It takes (2) days for the site work and foundation and 1-2 days for the garage to be installed.
We build about (1) week after the concrete is poured and this usually takes (1) day. So the answer is it could take almost (2) months or (8) weeks before you get your garage.
This was several years ago and I do not remember all the costs of this garage. It was in the thirties.
A-1. We could do the garage but not the site work and foundation.

A-2. Anything over 200 miles from Lancaster, PA is to far to manage the foundation .

A-3. We will however offer blueprints and the building. If you want us to act as a General Contractor we could find a local Mason in your area and Sub-contract this part out. Some homeowners prefer this as they do not want the hassle of dealing with an additional contractor and want an all in one service.

We ask for a 20% deposit to get started. We order the blue prints and away we go. After the site work is complete including the foundation we ask for an addition 50%.
The remaining balance is not due until we are completely finished with your garage.
*We can start the blueprint process with a smaller deposit($750.00). However we will not order materials or start construction until we receive the required 20% deposit.
We accept everything. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, cash and checks. We even accept PayPal.
We only build to code and all our garages must be sealed for the state we are building in. We have engineers that stamp New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Pennsylvania
We are about (4) weeks out right now. The biggest time killer is getting the prints and permit from the building department after that we usually start in about (3) weeks.
It was at the time however costs have gone up and with the foundation this model would cost closer to $26,000.00
A-1. The truss are Pre-engineered and the main walls are framed up but other then that it is build on site.

A-2. We build any size you want the process is always the same. Prefabricate the walls and truss’s.
