How much will a brick garage cost to build?

If I was going to build a garage the traditional way (ie bricks) does anyone have any idea how much im looking at (just in terms of brick work)???

I want it to be about 9ft by 12ft, and needs to match my house (new build style bricks).

Am I correct in saying that the correct way to build it is to use breeze block on the inside, then a gap for insulation and then the outer built from the brick?

Anyone know anything?

Thanks

    Im sure someone will know better than me eg someone in the building trade but i would guess...
    do you need to build foundations or using an existing site for it? if so then foundations/base will need laying with will vary in cost depending if your using one of those compnaies that come and drop off ready mix or if your going to do it yourself (yourself probably about £100 -£150 ish)
    depending on exactly what kind of brick your after they vary again in price engineering brick when i last looked was about £200 per pallet plus door and roof again depending on what material you want to use.
    as for using breeze block you dont really have to use the dual layer i think thats usually for houses??? (i will stand corrected) you could always build it out of breeze and render it? would be loads cheaper!
    i was lucky enough to find a sectional one for free the downside was i had to dismantle and move it too!
    sorry if its a bit vaque but every little helps
    good luck

    Viz style answer;

    Build the garage remembering to keep a careful note of exactly how many bricks you use.

    Then, once complete, mutiply the cost of of each brick by the number of bricks used to get your answer. Easy!!

    ive asked this in the past to people in the trade and quoted about £4k

    no blocks on the external walls, just one course of brick as far as i know
    not 100% but dont think you will need foundations, it depends on the size (i work in metres)

    an alternative may be a pre-assembled garage, cheaper and easier to put up

    I'm sure building a brick garage without foundations would be an absolutely ludicrous idea.

    does it not depend on whether it is a stand-alone garage or one thats connected to a house?

    i see your point though, only very shallow ones though

    Depends on how far down the clay is. I once dug out footings for an extension and I had to dig six foot deep before I hit clay. And the fukin sides kept falling in too so they ended up about 5 feet wide in places.

    Mate, you will need foundations lol, You need (should have )foundations for a bloody garden wall.

    Kerr was about right with the 4k quote, I'd have said 5 grand for the base, structure, door, roof , guttering and a couple of power points.

    You don't need a cavity wall on a garage mate, 4 inch wall with a pier either side to strengthen it up.

    Oh and Dan nukem was correct, you will need planning for a garage.

    It's finally arrived....PM Neb for swaps!

    well first of all you need planning permission, but if your neighbours have garages then that should not be a problem...

    Your forgot the cost of the concrete base pad, that can come in at around 2k for the labour and materials...

    Depending upon the cost of your bricks and how much labour you need to employ I'd say the rest in labour and materials for the outer and inner wall, joists and roof tiles would be 8k

    so all in all around 10k for a double garage...

    No cavity wall required on a garage and roof tiles only required for a pitched roof, cheaper option would be a flat roof,

    Obviously you'd save a lot of cash if you self build, depends how skilled you are though

    Planning doesn't like you building flat roofs nowadays

    true in instances like a dorma going in, they now are reluctant to pass a flat roof but there are ways and means.

    I put a flat roof on a garage around 12 months ago, no probs.

    A guy down my road has just flat roofed his new dorma for his loft conversion, originally he was told it had to be pitched, they changed their minds.

    you can put the rooves SLIGHTLY pitched, even if its like a 10 degree pitch it isnt flat anymore and it will more then likely be passed by the council

    no cavity wall needed, use mastic asphalt for the roof and try and find someone who is in the trade as they could more then likely get the materials at trade price, big savings

    as regards labour, i very much doubt i could build a garage, so if you are the same try and find a mate who could

    by the way the £4k i suggested was for getting all of the materials through my work and a few of us building it ourselves, if you cant do this then £10k might be nearer as elliot said
