Anyone have a rough (even very rough) idea of what it costs to demolish an old two-bay garage and build a new one? Our house came with a detached garage that is 1)really too small for two cars (17'X17', not leaving enough room to open car doors, store equipment, etc.), 2) too close to the back of the house, making a planned addition to the kitchen rather difficult, and 3)has bad doors, old wiring etc. The garage is in pretty good shape, with cinderblock walls and a recent roof but it's location and size are impractical. Someone quoted me ~$7-8K for the job and we live just north of Philadelphia. anyone out there have any idea for the average cost of such a job?

Sounds pretty good to me. The killer is concrete. We have a separate 3 bay that our friend (who is a GC) is building and giving us a deal, and it's SUBSTANTIALLY more than that. If it was a two bay garage, it would still be quite a bit more than that 7 or 8 grand you're talking about.
