Tripplewide, looks great. I have a simular setup.

How do you work the curtain? I've thought about it but don't want to have to climb on a ladder everytime we go in and out.

Thank you. A lot of work on my part to keep labor cost down. Foundation was the hardest part.

The curtain slides on a cable stretched across the top of the opening. Placed a carabiner at each grommet and hooked it to cable. Four cords operate the curtain. It can be opened from either side. Added an open hook at top center of opening to remove sag from curtain weight. Fashioned a hook out of EMT so I can unhook the cable if I want to open it more than half way. Also added a concrete embedded u bolt center bottom to provide down tension on tarp.

Attached are some pics and a sketch.

This is the nicest RV garage I've seen. BTW, that garage ( not looking this good) would cost over $60K in central FL.

Is your sunscreen curtain manufactured as such or did you make it out of something else?

Just in time for winter...

We started in July and had a few delays.The garage is 40' deep and 44' wide.

We just had the floor poured 2 weeks ago and the doors installed this week.
Electricity, heating and painting will have to wait until spring.

I would be interested In some interior pics? What's upstairs? Did you have a builder or did you do it yourself?

Thanks

That is a nice looking garage and looks to be on a really nice piece of property.
