Our measurements (i.e. 8ft. x 12ft.) are taken from the outside of the floor & wall framing, therefore, they don't include the siding, and/or sheathing.

For true interior measurements, subtract the thickness of the wall framing; 3 ½” for 2x4 walls, and 5 ½” for 2x6 walls. Note: 2 x 4 is actually 1 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 x 6 is actually 1 ½” x 5 ½” due to the properties of "finished” lumber.

Wall Plan

For true exterior dimensions, add the siding, sheathing (if applicable), and corner trim pieces. The Canexel siding is 3/8" thick, the cedar siding is 3/4" thick and the log siding is 1 1/2" thick. The wall sheathing varies from 7/16” to 3/4”. The corner trim is 3/4".

If you have any other questions pertaining to the size of your building, please do not hesitate to ask us, we're here to help.

Roof Framing Plan

Montcrest prefab garages are built with gable roofs, featuring a continuous ridge with two sides sloping from the center toward the walls. This roof design makes it ideal for those looking for extra headroom to add a loft studio for extra storage or living space.

Gable roofs are much easier to frame, sheath, and finish, giving the vertical wall component of a gable roof its style, known as “gable ends”.

Ventilation is easy to install. Due to its geometry and access to gable ends, roof vents can be placed on the gable ends rather than the roof itself. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

Soffits are the cedar trim pieces that are attached to the underside of the rafter ends.
Fascia is typically the cedar 1x4 that’s used to cover the rafter tips and provide a nice straight level line for the bottom of your roof.

Finishing

Once your Montcrest cedar garage building is completed, there are a few things you can do on the inside to add to the comfort and enjoyment of your new Summerwood Montcrest design.

Please see Interior Finishing under Advice for more information

Insulation

If you plan to heat your garage, insulation may be added either at purchase or after-the-fact if you decide to do it later. The walls and roof are constructed in such a way that adding insulation either as an option or on your own is quite simple to do.

Electrical

The inside of our garage styles are left exposed to easily accommodate wiring for lighting, outlets, garage door openers, car chargers, power tools, whatever you have in mind. Once the installation is complete, simply have an electrician come and do his thing.

Electrical configuration example

Plumbing

Provided you have a water source nearby, your garage pipes can be run for sinks and taps. If you have something a little more elaborate in mind like a shower or toilet, best to make sure it is coordinated with the concrete pad and installation of the garage.
