I have two of the 12' X 20' shelter logic garage in a box shelters. One houses out 1992 Chev Silverado that we want to customize as our "Classic" vehicle. One of the shelters got a wind whip last spring and it was tossed around the back yard. As it was during winter. After a spring windstorm. It got twisted and bent beyond repair. We took it apart and put it away. I have the new garage that now houses all of our tractors (8) all of my wood working equipment, wood, fishing boat and trailer and 3 four wheelers and during the winter our 2004 Chev. Duramax. Needless to say it is way to crowded. Now for the redo. We are going to take the frame of the shelter and shorten the height about 2 feet. I am going to build an extra truss for the center and we will put perlons on the trusses and cover it with steel roofing. We will place it behind the new garage. We are going to use 4' X 8' plywood for the sides and one end. I will build the other end with a door in it. During the summer I will put the fishing boat and GT implements in it. During the winter it will house all the GT implements and two of the unused GTs during the winter. I am going to reside the new garage in the spring and the siding off it will be used on the lowered shelter. It will be anchored in concrete and held fast to the ground. The roof is at a 6/12 pitch which will let the snow slide off of it. Putting the gts and implements and other items in it during the winter will free up a lot of space in the garge so I can use the wood tools. I know another project, but this has to be done. I can't stand not having room to work on projectsin the winter. i will have heat in there this year and that will make it better. Pictures as it progresses in the fall. Roger.
