You would certainly think so. The reality is no one wants to pay what would be profitable. Maybe, you'll discover otherwise where you are. My experience was in central FL, Tampa area, and northern VA.

I live in Winston Salem (and work in Hickory), and have seen the same need in this area. I looked briefly for indoor storage until we could get the garage built and didn't have much luck.

New garage will be done by thanksgiving (hopefully).

30x50x16 Morton with 20x14 door.

That will be very nice. Just curious, what would a building like that run? Pad incl, of course.

I found the building, roof and wall sheeting with hardware and truss calcs for cheap. I should get my rear in gear. It's a 30' x 36' x 12' that could easily be a 30x40x14.

That looks great. Photos along the way please. I hope you enjoy building yours as much as I did mine. RV Carport Construction I wish I could have fully enclosed mine but I would have to cool it, in this part of the country. Heat would not be necessary but cooling would cost more than the building, over time.

So what kind of dollars you have in this barn? Wouldn't be hard to fully enclose.

I would love to hear some cost ranges for a Class A garage.

Thank yo u

Bear in mind that I have the heavy equipment at my disposal, except for the anchor drill truck, I had to hire. I also have a couple friends that know the ins and outs of metal buildings. I traded some China Bomb ST tires for the concrete labor on the piers. They run them on their equipment trailers. I did the water and electric myself. My cost was around 14K. I elevated the piers for a future slab. It will cost another 4-5K for a concrete slab.

Coach Garage

We recently completed our garage which included an 18'x42' bay for our motorhome. (yes, I know i should have made it 50'). Garage floor is 5000 psi concrete, and driveway is 4000 psi. Very happy with it.

Coach garages

We recently built ours last year when we built the house, we had just under 50K in the RV project, the RV garage/shop is 28'x46' and matches the house, which added cost because of the natural slate we put on it. The door is 13'x 14'. It is fully insulated and has full hook ups. The slab is 8" reinforced concrete and is the same going out to the end of the driveway. It also includes a bathroom and a work bench and cabinets with a lot of storage shelves. All the walls are 2x6" cobsruction with a tile roof. I love having it, it keeps the coach clean and it is easier to maintain. We were spending 200.00 per month for indoor storage.
Regards Marc
