    That is an onsite choice, Often buildings that old are made very solid.

    For $16,000 I would expect a nice new 2 car garage with lights, outlets, and a garage door opener. Since you appear to be in a northern climate, I would suggest splurging a bit and get the new garage insulated with insulated doors.
