Cost of detached garage

Asked this on the OT, but wanted to try here too.

Thinking of adding a detached 2 car garage, and just wondering if anyone has done it and what kind of cost to expect. Nothing too fancy, cement slab, wooden exterior, asphlat roof, no air or heat. Maybe a little storage room on the side if there is money left over. TIA

re: Cost of detached garage
10-12K if you DIY

23-26K to hire someone

Slab, frame lumber, trusses, roofing, doors, windows, electrical, drywall, trim, hardware, lighting, storage units. It adds up quick.

re: Cost of detached garage
With those materials a two car garage should cost about $20,000.
* Having a contractor build a standard garage typically runs about $35 -$45 a square foot. Contractors.com says the minimum size (enough to park a vehicle) for a single-car garage is about 240 square feet, or $8,400 -$10,800; for a two-car structure it's around 380 square feet, or $13,300 -$17,100.
* AskTheBuilder.com suggests that a "dream" garage with plenty of room for two vehicles (without having to squeeze to get into and out of them) plus adequate work space, lighting, ventilation and attic storage requires 800-850 square feet, at $29,000 -$38,000 or more.
* Upgrading the quality of materials can bump the cost to $55 a square foot, or $13,200 for a minimum single-car structure, $21,000 for a two-car garage and $47,000 or more for the dream version.
* Accomplished do-it-yourselfers can cut costs considerably; materials for a single-car garage with a door but no windows start at $3,000 -$4,000, depending on the size and style. Kits with pre-cut or pre-fab materials to build a steel or wood garage run $5,000 -$14,000 or more, depending on the size of the structure and the quality of materials.

Just a question by chance for you. Looking for an experienced and reliable roofer for a commercial building with flat roof in Covington, happen to know anyone to recommend?

$75/ ft. sq. I'm building a new house now and that what it costs to build something that matches the house, but would basically be sheeted on the inside with concrete floors, no a/c.
