low-tech-works

I built this last summer for about $800.00. It is
not "high tech". It is very strong and keeps the
direct sun and rain off.

Here's my Airstream support building. All of the tools inside her help keep repair costs to a minimum.

I am also looking for ideas. Any pros or cons on the shed type with open sides?
Am thinking main goal is to keep AS out of direct sun, rain, hail, snow and falling branches. Rodents are a problem (I hate pack rats!). I wonder if an open cover may allow predators to police the rodent issue.
I think a pole barn type construction would visually better suit my location and possibly allow a pull thru.

Most any roof protecting an Airstream, is better than no roof.

However, I would suggest that the roof be slightly tilted upwards on the normal prevailing wind side.

But then I would also suggest, that some vertical siding also be added, if no worse than a heavy duty fabric, or better, at least half way down.

That would add additional protection from any normal wind driven rain, hail etc.

If the sides are facing east and west, you could add some louvers or a type of cheap siding leaving about 4 feet clerance from the ground.

That would allow additonal protection from the sun, and bad weather.
