    Storage for the little girl?

    Input or suggestions appreciated!
    I use my 1026R & FEL during the winter only to widen out the driveway of mounds left by the X700 with the 54" blade. This will happen 2-3 times an AVERAGE winter here in Wisconsin & only on the nicer warmer days as the driveway is already clear of snow.

    I don't want to invest in another outbuilding & pay a large amount of money just for a parking place!
    My garage is nice, but getting a little crowded. The wife tripped over the plow blade one day & the funding for a shed came thru rather quickly

    I was at Menards the other day, when I happen to notice the cart corral. They sell them as kits & I could easily add more tin to the side & back to enclose it 3 sides keeping out the snow & sun off the little girl, meaning my 1026R & not my wife! It can be made higher with a kit Versa-tube has & I would anchor it down to heavy railroad ties so it wouldn't be a permanent structure. Click image for larger version.

    My dad has a couple of these sheds, one for his Boston Whaler and one for his International FEL and Massey Ferguson 35. He seems quite happy with them and they keep the weather off the equipment. The one with the Whaler he set on some posts and it is about 30' tall. He put doors on both ends so it is pull through.

    What was pricing like. I was searching for metal buildings and quanza huts were fairly cheap, plus the round shape is somewhat aerodynamic.

    Looking for JD Parts check here on JD's official parts website.

    Have no idea where to start with JD Parts check here for a how to.

    Looks like total will run me about $1200.00 total.
    The fact that a friend & I can build it in a matter of a few hours is a big plus!

    I've thought about doing the same thing behind my existing garage.

    My Mom had one of those at her house to protect her then new car. It worked fine. They are easy to build and my BIL and I put it up in about a day.

    The only real downside is that they will never win an AIA award for architectural excellence.

    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Versa Tube Carport Storage for the little girl.

    Ordered it today now that the snow is finally melting away
    A little bigger than the cart corral I was first thinking of.
    This will be 12 feet wide, 18 feet long & 7+ feet high as I will be fastening it down on used railroad ties to add a bit of height & keep the steel off the ground.
    I will post pics as I build it hopefully in April.Click image for larger version.

    Menards delivered...

    Menards delivered the Versa Tube shelter yesterday. Waiting for the last of the snow to melt away from the construction area!! Also a bit of help, hoping later this week to put up.

    Used my Bobcat UTV to move the basic parts about...Click image for larger version.

    Progress update!

    Now, crossing my fingers, that the snow has finally quit here in NW Wisc.
    We had a few days to get it mostly built.
    I modified it a bit, putting it on railroad ties so the steel wasn't on the ground.
    I also added 2 poly carbonate panels at the top to act as a skylight.
    I just need to finish the top back & may do that also in poly carbonate.
    Happy with ease of construction, but you need at least two people & three is better!Click image for larger version.

    I know that's NOT the JD in there, but it helped with the pallet forks so it deserved the first night in the shed. The little girl is still in the garage
