    Default Start of a project. Fats GARAGE in the making

    I just got the plans from my architekt. What are your thoughtsÐ? Something I could change before I start. You guys have maybe some ideas that I dont know even exist out there.
    This is the style it will be built in.

    Is it going to be a "working" garage, or more for parking / display?

    You should consider a truss system or similar for roof so you don't have any columns in the way

    It appears you have 4 columns smack dab on the center line
    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',

    maybe the pic on here is too small to tell. What are the "+" down the center line? I assumed they were columns

    Did your architect use an engineer, those spans seem pretty far to not have columns from the low res picture. Unless they are calling for the use of I beams or truss's I don't think they are accurately accounting for the load, especially if your in Iceland, where the weight of snow adds a lot to a roof's load.

    The garage will be in Poland and there will be no columns. This is how it will look

    Upload the PDF files to a website, small pics are blurry as heck.

    What are the x marks on the floor plan?
