I contracted with an Amish Builder. They had it up in less than a week. That included concrete floor. My big problem was trying to stay out of their way.
They are good....
We don't have restrictions and that helps.

I've been building a 30x50x16 metal building for the last 4 weeks and put up the last piece of tin today (happy camper). It takes a while when doing it by yourself.

Still have to build driveway ramps and a few little other things, but it shouldn't be long now before I wash the MH and put it inside.

Congrats on your addition!! It'll pay for itself in reduced maintenance / winterizing costs and net you a higher resale because of condition.

When we added on / remodeled the house we have now, before we moved in, we added this:

45'x50', heated (gas) with full hookups including 50A.

Cangrats on the barn. Thats a great building, but much nicer than a pole barn. I park under (not in) an open POLE barn -- no sides. My MH over time gets quite dusty, in fact, it stays cleaner outside where the rain rinses off the dust but I use the polebarn anyway.

Smile Motorhome now under roof

Behind the Dogwood tree is the barn I built for our motor home 16 years ago. I don't have cement floor nor sewer hook-up but do have 30 amp service. The barn is about 100 feet from the house and we have a pad behind the house to use for loading/unloading. It certainly makes RVing more fun to have it here.

I like your barn. Sort of looks like mine, minus all the junk on the floor and on shelves. Am planning on cleaningit out when weather cools off.

BigKuhna, Love your new addition. What are the demensions/details of your new "garage" ie., size, eve height, windows for light, door size, etc.? I am in the planning stages for a pole barn for our RV and would appreciate any information or suggestions from you or others that have already gone through this planning process. Have room for a large building and am thinking in the neighborhood of a 36 x 60 pole building with two large end doors (same end) for RV and large triple axle boat trailer.

Boy you will love keeping her inside. Dimensions are 32x48 with 16' eves and 14x14 overhead door. No problem getting her inside. Lots of room. A good friend has a larger building I beleive 48x56 with two big doors on gable end and smaller overhead in the back side. Two Motorhomes and smaller pull type and still lots of room for smaller toys.
I was advised to put a skylight (full length) on the top of the roof. Super good idea. Leaves a lot of light in and not much need to use electric. I only have one window and a walk in door.
Now I can work on her anytime....
Good luck with yours.

Golly, mine is kinda puny compared to some.... Only 15' wide by 40' deep. One 14x14 door and a people door. Plus a full length skylight on the peak of the roof. Just have 30 amp service. After the fact I realized that I should have paid the $$ for a retaining wall and made the concrete pad 20' wide. Now the MH has to be centered so all bay doors open. Oh, well, after spending winters under a pile of snow, it is out of the weather.
