Admittedly I don't have enough room in the new garge to keep all my GTs and Big Tractors, boat, truck , atvs, and wood working room. It is 30' X 40' with 10' 4" sidewalls. It is full. I have two of the Shelter Logic 10' X 20' Tent shelters. Now you can see my problem. The one blowing around the yard was tethered down and was covering a couple of tractors and attachments. We disassembled it and put it up in the trusses. I now have an idea to rebuild it to a portable / permanent structure on skids (eventualy) but will start out on the ground.
I plan on putting the skeleton back up and putting purlons on the roof and putting metal roofing on it. I have several (10) sheets of 7/16 OSB left from the garage. I am going to purlon the sides and ends of it and apply the OSB. I am going to put housewrap on that and vinyl siding over that. The siding on the garage has gone bad (it's only 2 yrs old) and I am going to be given enough new siding to replace it. I plan on assembling the walls on the ground and then fastening them with screws, so I can show that it is a temporary building and that it can be maoved. I am estimating it will cost about $500.00 to do this. It will be a winter storage for the less important GTs and attachments. (wife wants the 8' X 10' shed back for the garden tools and such) In the summer I will keep the boat and attachments in it. This was supposed to already happening but due to the problem with the finger I haven't been cleared to use " power tools " yet. As soon as I can I am going to get this started and get it done. I have to be able to work in the garge this winter. ( I do have heat for it). Will take about 3 hours to assemble the skeleton and another 4 hours to get all the purlons on it. I want it closed in all except for the siding by winter. If I have to enlis tthe help of my son and his friends I guess it will up the cost of it by a hundred or so, they like to eat real well. ANy one have any thoughts on this? Will welcome any other ideas. I have ordered the metal roofing and it will come cut to size with a ridge cap. Thanks. Roger.
