    If I can't do it slow then it's not going to get done.

My father in law informed me last night that he is going to bring me all of his old mowers. His health is not what it used to be. There is a JD 120, Sears ST/16 , an old Gilson, and a few more that I will not know anything about till I get them. There is at least six tractors. Could be more. He had an old Wizard at one time. Small with about a 5hp motor I think. The good thing is my wife cannot say much since her father gave them to me and is going to help delivering them too. It will be many years before I will need another project. I promise there will be many pics to come.

Sounds like you have some work ahead of you!  Good score for you...sorry to hear about his health.  I always say there's going to be a helluva auction when I die!

 

I had to build a shed when I sold some property I was using for storage.  I had a 10'X20' built with 8' walls and a barn roof.  I built a loft in it for extra room.  I had it built on site by a company that sells/builds them.  It was about $3,600.  It was well worth the money.  I could have built it myself, but they had it done in a day.  It would have taken me weeks to build it with my limited spare time.

TSC had 12' x 20' Shelter Logic Garage in a Box on sale for $300 last Christmas time. You may be able to talk them into the $300 deal. I have two of them up and love them. A couple of tips: After erecting cover the entire garage with a 20' x 30' heavy duty silver tarp, over the top of the garage run ropes(3) from one side to the other with #50 weights on each side. I also tie the frame to tractors inside to give additional anchoring. Good Luck, Rick

 

The tarp which I got for $50, protects the $400 tarp that comes with the garage.

 

IMO if you are going to build a permanent garage you should build it big enough for 2 car storage or 1 car with room to work.

Look into a pallet shed.  I built one several years ago and has worked out good.  16 X 32, 8' front and 6' back clearance.  Can usually get the pallets for free so have free walls.  Google pallet buildings and should get numerous pictures of all kind of uses for used wood pallets.

Thanks for all the reply's. I think I will try chieffan's way. I like to build things and there are plenty of pallets for free around here. I googled pallet shed and could not believe all of the things people are using them for. Now I have to do some figuring to see how much storage I will need. The way things are going I will be adding onto it or building another one sooner or later.
