    Shelter Logic (Garage in a Box)

    I've been looking for a temporary (maybe a couple years) storage solution for the tractor and attachments. Reading through a few of the other threads, I'm leaning towards something like ShelterLogic. It's been a few years since any of the threads I read were updated, so I wanted to get some thoughts from folks who have something like this, specifically how they fare in wind and snow.

    I'm looking at putting a 4" section of aggregate for the flooring as concrete is not an option at the moment.

    It seems like a lot of people like the Carolina Carports, but that's not in the budget. A pole barn is coming in the future, but we have several other projects going on, so like I said this is a 'temporary' solution to get my garage back.

    Thanks folks

    My in laws use one of these, about 3 yrs max, our guess is because it sees everything from 95 degrees to -20, after the second season we put a heavy tarp over it and they can usually get 1 to 2 more years out of it.

    Tractor Time with Tim has a review on his portable shed before he built a permanent building.
    I am sure Tim won't mind me linking to one of his Youtube videos. He is always looking for subscribers.

    We do get snow, not usually a lot of it though and it comes in 2"-3" at a time, at that is one of the things I am concerned with.
    Tim's video was helpful. Thank you Ilmo for posting.

    Around here you won't even see any carports for that reason.

    With the snow you get I guess it would be easy enough to keep it swept off.

    At least you're trying to keep your equipment under cover - well worthwhile.

    Just something to consider while you are in this phase. When I looked at your link I see what you are looking at costs $800 - don't know about the shipping cost.

    I have no idea what this cost me when we built it. A pavillion that is 20'x10'. This sits along the creek and used to use it a lot but since we built our deck on the back of the house we didn't use it much anymore. So it turned into my equipment storage area.

    4x4 posts and we made the trusses ourselves from rough sawn lumber. I think the metal roof was the most expensive part.

    What I am thinking is maybe you should price out building something like this. If this is only to be for your equipment temporarily it could then become a nice family gathering area for cookouts and such. It works great for that if it rains!

    If it wouldn't block my view of the creek I would put 3 sides on it now.

    Even if this would cost you 50% more than a tent it is something that you would have forever and not throw away in a couple years.

    I was able to walk into my shelterlogic, and push upwards on the roof sections to 'bounce' the snow off. We had lots of snow (for us) that winter. Once, we get got about 12" total, I made a trip outside to 'bounce' the snow off the roof mid snowstorm. Other times, I did not worry about it.
