    There's lots of companies making concrete garages, all claiming to be the best, there's probably not a lot to choose between them. I bought a concrete garage about four years ago from https://nucrete.co.uk/.

    The new base cost me £1,250. The garage cost about £3,500 £3,334 (I just checked), delivered and erected. A few months later I noticed water coming through one of the concrete panels so I sent them an email and they sent a couple of blokes round to change the panel.

    They all seem to have vary their prices depending where you are in the country, i.e. how far they have to travel to deliver it.

    BTW It took two blokes a couple of hours to erect it, I reckon if you chose to do it yourself with a couple of mates who also didn't know what they were doing it would take an awful lot longer (days instead of hours).

    You'd need a slab whatever type of garage you put up, any wooden flooring will be temporary. The roof would put me off and push me towards a metal garage but if you're happy with that then the blockwork can't be that difficult.
