    Purchased a new tractor 2 weeks ago. I would like to have it garage stored but that will be an estimated 2yrs or so. For now I would like a temporary 8-10' wide x 18-20' long canopy with sides(8' high entrance). It will be in deep snow territory on NY and I will not be there all the time. So it must handle 2-3' of snow storms at a time( high pitch roof). Any recommendations? Thx

    My best advice is hire it done. Can these Jokers really build a shed that big?

    You can create your building plan on Menards web site. You don't have to buy from them, just use their free building estimator to figure out what you need as far as snow load etc. You can then use that as a guide as to how you want to do it. That will also help put you in the ballpark for price. You can make changes to your plan and see the price differences also.

    If you search the term "shelter" you'll find quite a few threads on the "shelter logic" portable/temporary garages. See if this search link works:

    Make sure your temporary shelter has the snow load and wind load equivalencies of a permanent building or you could be digging your tractor out from under it with a shovel. Didn't I see pictures on here recently of just such an event?

    Sorry I missed the temporary part. My info is worthless to you.

    Howdy,
    check out the shelters they have at Tractor Supply Co. We had a garage one in Colorado, and we had the rounded roof to help keep the snow off. My buddy's Dad kept his truck and atv in it. We lived in the mountains at the time and we had plenty of snow to deal with and never had a problem with the roof.

    Good luck!

    I have had a Cover-It round top for about 20 years. I opted for the heavier vinyl material for the canopy. Still standing tough all these years later at my mom's place. My father in law bought one at same time. His is still standing as well.
    He bought several cheaper peaked roof types over the years to store wood and they all have collapsed at some point from snow if he didn't clean snow off after it fell.
