Terry, have you ever considered building a lean-to off the side of the garage big enough to get the tot'r in? I did that off of both sides of mine, one side for the pick-up, and the other side, big enough for the bobtail! Had to dig down some to get the clearance, but it was lower on the one side already so it worked out well. I came off the peak, ( down about a foot ) to make it tall enough! Worked out really well, as the old garage was post and beam, so it had the bones to do! You could cut out a big opening, in the side wall, so it would make a nice big area! Just a thought? Rail!

Good Morning, Rail, Great minds think alike, Eleanor and I have discussed that the one side of the garage is lower and I could go off near the peak like you did. Maybe next year. Pick up the steel today for the platform .

Terry,
Sounds like a plan to get an inside work area for your bigger projects. Looking forward to more pics of the Tot'r build. I would guess that the layout will begin shortly after the steel gets home.

If you are going to build additions there should be room to store the Tot'r/TH combination if practical. However depending upon the storage fees it may be more economical and practical to continue as is. That looks like an impressive storage area you currently have the TH stored in.

Is it possible to build a temporary shroud in front of the door to get the Tot'r van in to work on for the winter. Something with 2x4, sheeting covered in tarps to shed the snow??? A Herman Nelson could be used to take the chill off when working if necessary.

Well got started on the platform, have the perimeter cut and tacked together, tomorrow will sit it on the Tot'r to make sure we are square. Hard to see on the inside shot there is the front with angles in the steel.

Looks great, Terry! That "hyper speed button" sure comes in handy!!! That frame will also be real good to hang the box's from to house the tanks and for storage down the sides!! Will look great!!! Rail!

Good Morning, Working away, beautiful day 65* and 100%% sunshine . Got the frame rails cleaned up and put the platform on the rails to finish up and put the cross members in. Hard to see the side view. should give us lots of room along the sides for storage ect. Thanks guys for the encouragement.

Looking good Terry. Is it easier to put in the storage and tanks along the sides now, before the rails and box go on, or is it easier to wait until rails and box are installed?
