Block Wall Details

Our garages are built on block foundations or concrete pads. Shawnee Structures does not do block or concrete work. We have mason contractors that subcontract for us or you can arrange block and concrete work yourself.

Block foundations require a plate installed on top of blocks. Our crew will install a pressure treated sill plate on top of block wall.


Anchor Bolts

Anchor bolts should be 4" from outside of blocks so that our 2" x 4" walls do not need to be notched.


Block opening for steel door should be 41"

Block opening for garage door should be 9' 6" (6" larger than garage doors.
