Some of you have probably thought of putting up a building to store your RV in. Will I actually did it.

I put up 40x75x12 steel building with water, sewer and electricity. I had enough in the budget to get the drive blacktopped and the aux RV parking graveled. I will have 50 amp, sewer and water for anyone that stops by, that's assuming you can find me out in the middle of Type, Texas.

I have loaded most of my pictures on my Yahoo photo site, just follow the link in my signature. Check out the water meter install to see what happens when you hit a 8" 125psi water line Here are 2 to start with:
The Begnning


The End

I did the same thing about 9 years ago. I keep modifying it. I seldom park the TT inside anymore because I wasn't smart enough to put doors at both ends. Also I have too much other stuff in it. We have a separate electric line (30A) for the RV only. I also put a dedicated outlet in the garage for more flexibility. No sewer or H20 hookup. Now I wish I had done the sewer and H20.

Oh well, next week is retirement so I should have time to do some of these things. I just don't think I could survive w/o the barn.

Good luck,

Frank

Dale,

I forgot to ask you when we were at your place looking at the RV barn....how tall is your door? I need 13'2" clearance, so I'll probably have to go with a 14' door which unfortunately means a taller building.

While I'm picking your brain, what is your door width?

Rusty

With a 12' side wall and a 3x12 pitch roof you can put in a 14x14 door. This about 13'9 or so, the door header takes up a few inches. I don't have any problem backing the rig in. But, you can not put in a rollup door as they need 2' above the header for the door to roll up. I put in a "low head room" door in.

Frank, now that you are retiring, you will wonder how you ever had the time to go out to work !! I retired 9 years ago, and I am still not caught up with all I need to do.
