I'm sorry to hear that your plans didn't work out for this year. I'll be looking forward to your updates on this project next year.

On the plus side that AC unit sure looks cool!

I recently had a carport installed (in 1 day) from it is 28' long 14' wide and 11' entry door. All steel, walls come down 6 feet, gambrel roof to match barn and it is barn red with white trim. It is 12 gauge steel and built to hold any snow load in northeast and anchored to asphalt. I paid $4,000 complete. This is open in the front, I do not have a door, 3 sides are closed. It is 14 X 28 because I needed to keep it less than 400 square feet per building code where I live. Over 400 square feet requires permits, surveys etc...

Here's my garage. I just bought my Airstream last week (25'). The door opening is 10' by 10'. It is a tight fit. I would have rather had 12' wide on the door, but the garage was built 30 years ago. I have 12' ceilings and 36' depth inside.

Fortunately I have enough acreage that I was able to have a "hanger" that is open at both ends. I can drive through, turn around and park the AS so it's read to go. There's 30 amp service and lights. It's wide enough to park my car trailer along side or a tow vehicle. The opening is 12' high, 18' wide and it's 30' long.

Yeah I like that type building Denis4x4. Wish I had room for one.

I went ahead and took out a lease on a commercial storage unit. The room is large like 35' long and 30 feet wide. Has electricity & lights.
The door is a sort of a pain, advertised 10' tall and 10 feet wide. Seems like a narrow-A_ _ 10 feet width when backing in !
My radio antenna touches the rubber on the bottom of the garage door. Its ok, The room is plenty tall I could build a platform over the Airstream to access the roof. Seems dry concrete floor, no chance of floods.
I have to put some wood down to get the tires off the concrete. Its a six month term at a time, I just didn't want the sun and dew every morning working on those fantastic plastic fans and aluminum clear coat. At least I can wax it if I need to. It's 7 miles from the house. DW was actually sad when we took it to storage.
Have a good one !

For my next trick, I will use my new Airstream & Dodge Ram 2500 CTD to make this pile of money disappear.

I built the 2200 sq FT garage with the intent of getting an Airstream. Mission accomplished!

My Barn

Check out a web site called Garage Journal. Tons of info on anything that has to do with a garage or barn. I built a 36X60 with 15 foot ceiling. Door size for my AS is 14 foot high and 12 foot wide. Used Lift Master garage door openers to keep my floor to ceiling height clear for future car lift(s). Also installed 20 - 8 foot (4 bulb) energy efficient florescent light and they plug into outlets in the ceiling. Makes it easier to replace if it goes bad.

I ended buying a storage unit pretty close to my house. I was paying 400 a month for Boat and trailer at two different units now I have them together a pay 528 for five years and its mine free and clear. Look into storage units that you can buy. Its 20x32 and its a tight fit with a 16 foot door but I manage.
