Needed more space for my Wheel Horses and implements, so we bought a "garage in a box".
I will let the pictures do the talking for now.

That looks great! I went the same route and they make a fine "Horse" barn! I bought the 10' X 20' model though. It's full, but I knew that it would be before I ever put it up. The important part was that I was able to make my work space in the barn emptier! I wish I'd have had the extra funds to put up the tie wall and the gravel floor in mine.

I took a tip from a guy on the "Other" forum. I got a 14 foot trampoline frame and set it up with each half facing the other. I put 10' 2x2s in the leg holes to connect them together. Then I stretched a tarp over it with bungee cords. It made an open quonset hut to keep the rain off my tractors. The only trouble was the wind. I tried to stake it down with rebar. Still, after the second time the wind picked it up and sent it sailing, I gave up and took it back down.

Looks good! No building permit and no taxes makes this a smart option.

Those are nice buildings...I've seen many fail and go off with the wind around my area. I've seen them staked with everything you can imagine. I have a few ideas of my own tho and if I ever run outa lumber this may just be an option.

I have all the ties pinned together with re-bar, and the re-bar is then driven into the ground about a foot.
The frame for the garage is bolted to the ties with 5/16" lag bolts 2" into the wood.

Sounds like you have to frame work tied down pretty good. Now to keep the tarp on it. It would be neat to have, but the high winds/sun we get around here would do a number on the trap after a couple years.
