Yes steve.. It is. Ask to speak to Greg. He does the internet specials. He was very helpful and willing to work with me on price. In fact when i was browsing around i found a closeout special and thats how i ended up saving a thousand dollars. I suggest getting the vents and the roll up door kit. It will come with these very cool anchors that you drive down into the dirt about 2 feet if possible and then when tugging on the cable that was driven down with the anchor it turns sideways and locks into place. i have 22 of these holding it in place from wind exposure. I selected "tan" only because i live in a pretty populated area and have an HOA to deal with.. didnt want to go green or blue on them.

Good luck! I have a ton of pictures if your intersted of the final project. It would have helped me a ton when i was trying to use the directions!

For those that wants something more able to take up and down or a temp shelter, Go to a trucking company that has flat bed trailers and get the address for the company that made thier tarps or you can google Tarps flat bed semi, you can order tarps that are up to 53 feet in length and any width, then take 1 3/4 poles and make a frame place the tarp over the frame so it goes from ground over the top to ground and you have a covered storage. Because these tarps are made for trucking purposes they are made for all weather conditions unlike the store bought tarps that tear with a little wind or cold.
Another suggestion is if you have one of those framed tarps that you buy in the store, take a sprayer and spray it with antifreeze, believe it or not it keeps or reduces the ability of the tarp to freeze. This is what we do in winter when we have to tarp loads.

How much in material costs for something like this?
