We're looking at building a double garage, roughly 40sqm plus an additional parking, maybe length ways next to the left of the new garage, in front of an existing house.The problem is that there is granite underneath which will have to be excavated to road level and only then can the building commence. The only place available is to the right of the photo and there is a 1.5m building line. New steps to the top of the house will have to be constructed as well. Please see photos.

Hi We have a stand with a log cabin in Cape St Francis and would like to look at adding a more permanent brick structure onto it. The length is around 13,5m by 4.5m with a layout of potentially: a room 3.5m by 3m, shower/toilet 1.8m long, another room 3.5m by 3m this with a front section walkway of 1m wide and then the rest into a counter area for shelves or small kitchenette open storage/workshop space etc. The log cabin is apparently good for another 10 years or so, but we want to build this space onto it to eventually expand once the log cabin is end of life. Hence, we would like to understand the costs of this new section based on: 1. Ability to add on top double storey brick 2. Single storey only 3. Single storey brick and top storey wood. If the above has any price implications etc. If it is possible to understand a rough per meter cost for budgeting purposes that would be great thank you.
