Your RV Garage - is it built or you plan to build one soon?

Your RV Garage: (Please no portable garages)

Are you going to build one soon? When? What?

Have you already built one? When? What?

Please share your ideas and pictures are a must.

Thank you, Tony

Your RV Garage - is it built or you plan to build one soon?

I have always loved the look of a Gambrel style barn.

Because I'm blessed to have a great wife and we are blessed to have our farm - I hope to finally be able to build my dream garage.

A large Gambrel Barn in three stages.

I plan to build the shop part first with a man cave above and a lento on one side of the barn.

Stage two I plan to close in the lento and add in a concrete floor.

Stage three I hope to be able to extend the barn with a second section making it twice as long as it is wide.

(Picutres to come soon)


Tony

I built ours in 2012. It is 36' wide and 44' deep. The RV door is 12' wide x 13' high. There is a 50 amp receptacle on the wall next to the power compartment. I have finally got the insulation done, but no heat, yet...

I have a 60x150 barn that my RV will share with our tractors. I'll see if I can't get a pic of it up

Built in 2003 for a Beaver Patriot, 38 feet wide by 48 feet deep with an additional outdoor 15feet by 45 feet parking apron. She's wired with both 30 amp and 50 amp service. In 2013 the Coach door was made larger (taller, because I didn't think the first time) when we purchased a Newmar Essex! Make SURE your coach door is large enough for any future RV you might purchase!



Also, when doing the coach door, look at "dual track" garage door track installation with a commercial grade door opener to maximize your door opening.

I have passed the planning stage but construction has not started yet. We are building a 24x48 pole barn type structure with a concrete floor. It will have a 14x14 door. The sides will be aluminum with the sofit and trim matching the roof color. I have one company preparing the site another one building the building and another one doing the concrete work. The site work will start this week. The people actually building the structure are Amish. Here in southern Maryland this type of building is very popular with the farmers as machine sheds. I was very surprised that the building itself including labor will be less than $15000.00. That does not include the site prep or concrete.I will post pictures as construction begins.

Build for the "next" RV. When we were building our Toy House, we were looking at 30 x40 building. Our builder looked at our RV and said he would not build that size because we would be mad at him in less than 2 years when we upgraded our RV. He was right, in less than 2 months after our building was done, we sold our 31C Fun Mover and ordered a 37LS Outlaw. It fits perfectly in our 50x50 building with 15 foot door.....

We plan on building this house. House Plan chp-21443 at COOLhouseplans.com There will be some changes made but I plan on adding a motorhome garage as the 4th garage bay. The door will be higher 12" but I will install the door header at 14' or higher just incase I need to install a larger door. It will run along the entire side of the house (about 51'). I have other stuff to that will need to be in the garage. I have not started the plans yet with an architect but we will soon. Already purchased the property. The difficult thing was we want to live in a subdivision so that was an added challenge. The good thing is, is that we bought a lot where the garage will be next to some woods that cannot be built on. We did see one house that had an attached motorhome garage and the difference between door heights was not bad at all. With the stone work and siding, it should look pretty good.

As others have stated, be sure to plan ahead, making sure the door opening is big enough. Minimum door opening of 12' wide by 14' high.

I built mine with only a 12' high door. The coach does fit, but if I trade up some day, I'll have some mods to do on the barn.

Built my 40 x 60 garage with twin 12 wide x 14 high doors. Concrete going down this spring when I get home and then finish the inside. This works out pretty good 'cause the coach takes up 1/3 the space and tractor, trailers mowers, pu use the rest. Bike sits in the house garage along with all tools.

Remember when you build it no matter what size if you really use it it will get small in a hurry
