Martin Construction was in the permitting phase for the construction of a commercial building for this client’s logistics trucking business when he approached the builder about designing and building an upscale insulated and finished garage at his residence. The main goal was to house and maintain cars, pickup trucks, a boat, and a semi-truck tractor. The truck tractor presented the greatest challenge, with height restrictions along with a limited area to build. The design requirements also included similar exterior coverings to his residence. Martin came up with a design utilizing a reverse-A center roof allowing a residential-sized garage that fit into the property’s setting. By utilizing girder-style trusses to support the reverse-A trusses, Martin Construction kept the garage free of interior support columns.
