Hey Bap,

If Harley1994 doesn't mind, post some pics of your garage fix. We are all loving the pics on this thread.

Harley 1994,

Have you thought at all about putting spray foam insulation in? It becomes it's own vapor barrier and you don't have to fill in the cracks or holes. It also bothers the heck out of bugs so they tend to stay clear of the stuff.

Just a thought! Like others I look forward to checking this at the end of my workday. Really wish I lived close enough to come over and help. Or bring lunch and watch, or help paint, or just see it up front. Love this thread!

Lynne

I don't mind at all!! post those garage pics. Lynne I did think about having someone come in and spray foam the shell, but the insulation and the way I am going to install it might be as good, I did think that by locking in the Poly Iso insulation board by filling the gaps with a commercial foam gun, that it would make the whole unit more stable. Here's some pics of the process of installing the siding, the pink film is a protective covering on the aluminum, and a pain to get off!! and a big ball of plastic left. I have one little piece on the nose left. Then the front. And then the roof, I almost have the weather beat

DUHHH! Had another thought. Went out and measured the awning on our 5er. First smart thing I did today. LOL

Our awning is 14'. They have it 8" above the top of the door. It is just above the bedroom window. Our 5er is fairly tall so the awning is 9' 10"' from the ground.

I think the longest awning you can get is 16' before they have a center support. Center supports are a PITA.

IMO the awning would be better 2 - 4" higher above the door as we had issues with the door rubbing on the awning when the awning stretched because of heat or moisture (I would open it as low as it would go in order to give us the most shade when the sun was shining). Some folks install a wheel on the door to prevent rubbing.

Another option is for two awnings. You could put an awning at the back at the optimum height for personal use. Perhaps 8 - 9' to give you the best living area and an awning over the doorway and front bedroom window to provide shade for the 5er and door and rain protection for the door.

The bikes could go under the front awning and the grill and personal space under the back awning.

Gordon food for thought, thats for sure thank you for all the measurements it really helps, I started on the nose this morning my first attempts was a failure. back to the drawing board. I have to help a friend mount his 5th wheel hitch, so I might be done for the day. I have to think about this........!

ID:	74332i had a wheel on the top of the door so it would roll if it came in contact with the awning of our fleetwood mh, it helped..

here are a few random pix of my garage build,it reall doesnt do it justice on size i will park a 16 or so footer tt sideways in the middle for living and then i can park 2 in each bay on both sides if im working on that many ,the half wall will open as gates for parking them and close back shut,, and i also reused the 40 year old rough cut oak that was used to build the building 40 plus years ago,,,,and i had to throw in a pic of my youngest grand son and what we do most every evening to relax from the day...we love throwing tomahawks ,knives, and my old jeep axe that usuallyt hangs on the front of my jeep....we throw from 30ft..its amazingly relaxing...lol

Great pics, nice build on the garage, I'll bet it'll be good to get those trailers inside! Yep I got his hitch installed, it was a new truck so everything was clean, but he was nervous about drilling holes in it , I don't have that problem, I'll drill holes in anything!!. But it turned out well, and now he owes me, so he is going to help put the aluminum on the nose of my trailer today. Heres a shot of my indoor / outdoor therm. notice that its 7:09 am and its still 33 degs, and some pics getting the nose ready for its skin. hopefully we get the skin on the nose today and all will be right with the world, at least my little part.
