I supose you are right. But you do have a nice coach home. Bet you have no issue with finding a house sitter.

Gets -40 where we are from as well. This last winter was one of the worst for bad weather (freezing rain, warm, freezing rain, snow, repeat). We had snow a couple days ago so spring is really procrastinating.

Would never ever recomend to anyone building a shop to use a door less than 14' high, nor any narrower than 12' wide.
Very nice garage. Hoping to build a 60 by 50 at my home next year. Just cleared an acre or so but have to put in a new road off the main drive for the new garage as well. Who did you have do the build and what company made the garage?
Thanks for the insight.

Rich, Ordered the building from a company out of Georgia who we order a lot of metal buildings from. It works out great this way, order building from a company out of Georgia, pay not sales tax because its out of state, but the building is manufactured and shipped from a company out of Houston, TX 3 hours away.

I am a General Contractor, so just hired all the various subcontractors to do the trades as needed like we would for any other project. If you have any specific questions, feel free to shoot me a PM and Ill be happy to help.

Thanks Gordon, we dont get to travel too much yet, so we make home as enjoyable as possible. I hope your weather improves, I looked at the winterhaven weather and it looks pretty hot. I bought a new boat this winter and cant wait to try it...the ice should be clear off the lake any day now. Take care!

Hoping to build.

This picture is similar to what I am hoping to build. The sooner I get it built the sooner the coach is out of the weather and the driveway!

Priced a Morton yesterday. Because of the cost of a 50x60 I reduced it to a 30x60. With the building cost and the road I need to have installed total is more than I am willing to spend being this close to retiring. Still considering a building but also have other projects that won't get done if I buy the Morton. Very nice building but the cost is just out of my reach for what I want.
Anyone have any other thoughts on open shelters for RVs. Are they worth it or should I bite the bullet and spend the money on a closed building? I may have to get an excavator to do the road and pad for now and put the building in a few years down the road.

I don't know what your budget is, or the contractors in your area, but I priced out a Morton, another brand of metal-construction, and stick-builts by a couple of builders. All priced higher than what I wanted to spend. Then a light went on, and I called a guy who I knew did custom home-construction, and also owned a boom-truck, which he hired out for setting trusses for other builders.

I told him what I wanted built, and asked him if he was interested. He said; 'yes, I am. I just finished up a pole barn for aguy with a motorhome, and am not starting a new home build for a couple months.'

Turns out he was half the price of the others, to built an all stick-built pole barn 36'x48', which was exactly what I wanted. The workmanship and quality of materials was of the highest caliber, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Call around, and see if you can find a local pole-barn builder that can give you what you want.
