Overhead doors going up this week, then heated floors. Finally looking like it's going to get done!

Now that's a door I could really live with.

One thing about a storage condo, if you have one in your area (if you don't, then find a plot of land and put one in and sell/rent the units).

It is off site (can be pretty close) and can be bought/sold like any property. My first one here in the Denver netted me an 36% profit in three years. My current unit is doing well also, but I don't expect much appreciation in the current real estate climate. It is particularly attractive if you DON'T have some spare acreage and don't want to have something on site that can only be sold when you sell the primary residence.

Also, it can be rented out if you no longer want to use it and you don't have tenants tromping around your property.

They have sprung up big time in the Denver metro area, but I don't know if the concept has spread to other areas of the country.

My Coach House

This is a pre-engineered steel building from the largest manufacturer in the industry. They have several different "brands" in the market that sell through local builders.
Mesco, Metallic, Star, Ceco, A & S, Midwest, and All American.
Any one of these brands could get you a nice bldg.
Mine is 40 x 80 with 16 foot sidewall eave height. I like the extra height, I added a loft workshop in the back corner and still have 10 feet of clearance below.
My roof slope is 6:12, steep for a metal bldg, but adds aesthetic appeal and slides snow really well. REALLY WELL!
Doors are 14 X 14 plenty of room. Don't skimp here, easy to get big motorhome in the barn.

We are in a moderate climate. Freezing weather is rare, and snow even more so. We wanted protection primarily from hail storms common in the area, a hard parking surface, and minimal expenditure. The location was low, loose dirt, and a slight slope. We did an 18x50 rebar reinforced slab w/entry apron, and placed two 4" conduit across the slab toward the rear for possible future use for water/sewer. Then we had an 18x50 cover put up. It is 12' tall at the outside leg, up to apx 14' in the middle. It is tall enough for antennas, etc, (I can walk on the roof bent over) and wide enough to open slides on both sides. We went two panels down on the South side as that is where the hail storms normally come from, and one panel on the North side toward the house. It could be fully enclosed including doors on both ends if desired. As is, building cost assembled was $5k. Contracted slab was $9k. It is adjacent to a 20x50 dual double-bay shop, and we put 50a and 20a power within easy reach on the exterior wall of the shop.

Garage is wired for 30 and 50 AMP service and plumbed for Oasis and Onan exhaust (life boat in the event of a long duration power outage). I did SCREW UP by not making the door large enough... it was built for our 2002 Beaver but had to be redone for our 2011 Newmar Essex. Hint to those building a garage... make the door high enough for any future coach!!

I envy those of you that can store your Motor Home on your own property in a custom built garage. But I was very fortunate to find a storage facility only 5 minutes from my home that had brand new drive through storage that is all enclosed with doors on both ends. There is also an empty covered storage building out the front end of mine that I can just drive over and park when I want to work on or just spend some time at the Coach. Oh well its not the same as being at home right out the back door with all the bells and whistles but it is not bad.

Ours is a wide span 40X40 with 16' and 18' doors. The doors are 16's. I wish now I had made it 46X40. The MH just fits in it by inches.
