Out of the elements

Post by Choptop »

Well I didn't want the Beast out in the cold, windy, blistery cold of a Wi winter and given the height, I had no were to put her, so I bought a portable shelter. Manufactured by Shelter logic and sold by Menards, bought a 32 x 14 x 12 and finished it today, just before the bad weather is about to hit. Will house the B, lawn mower, snow blower... Thought about a cover, but the good ones aren't cheap and I worry about condensation and what goes w/that. I will sleep better at night now. :D

Is your B in or out ?

The "Shelter Logic" structure I used is 14' x 32' x 12', the 32' deep is more than I needed but I have room for lawn mowers, 4 wheelers... The 14' wide by 12' tall is perfect for the B. I put the structure and the front panel together myself, had son and grandson help w/the top and I anchored every other support rib into the concrete and it is protected by 3 sides from the wind. It is a fair amount of work constructing it.

I am very fortunate. My inlaws, in their mid 80's have finally given up their 37' Class A. So somebody has to fill this garage space! Looks a little out of sort, but it works well for me!
