Airstream Hangar finally completed

A couple months ago I posted an early construction photo of a 27 x 48 Pole building for our 34 Classic.

Below is the finished product with the trailer put to bed for the winter.

The left door is a 12W x 12H while the right is 10W x 12H. I'm not planning to insulate; the next owner can! The building has 100 Amp Electric with (2) 30 Amp RV outlets; the whole 9 yards including the building lot which I stole for 5K was just short of 37K. The outside concrete pad took 28 yards of concrete which included the sidewalk that the borough required me to replace.The Amish built it; up here in North Central PA, they are quite reasonable.

I'm not sure I could get a building permit for that $$ out here in CA.

Good grief! I guess you listened to the guy spouting about going west as a young man?

Oh well!

What are the bldg dimensions?

After looking for a good lot to build on, we finally found a 1/2 acre lot about 10 minutes from our house. We are currently pricing a few of those "kit" buildings that are shipped and you assemble on your lot. At this point, we are thinking that a small bldg will cost us about 15K.

We only have a 19' Bambi right now and plan to build something at least 25' long to allow for some growing room.

Any other tips, etc?

Cool building - You did a fine job in its construction. My Airstream would easily fit in the 10X12 bay.

But why did you not build two 12X12 bays? Or conversely, two 10X12 bays?

very nice alvinator!

do i see a '4 rent' sign on the other bay?

one suggestion, get the tires OFF of the cement....

any thin layer of rubber, wood, plastic or something.

my understanding is the tires interact with the concrete surface negatively.

cheers

I just purchased my '77 Overlander from a gentleman in Indiana. U should see the home he build for his mother out of a PoleBarn. It has 2 bedrooms(Ucan build whatever U want) Full bath and laundry combo,large livingroom and a great kitchen. Then upstairs is a game room for his childeren and a two bay garage large enough to put the airstream I bought and a car. It was Unbeleivable,hardwood floors ,central vac AC the whole 9 yards,Never give up your dream.

The building is 27 x 48. The width of 27 was the max I could go due to side setback restrictions. I gave myself a 12 wide door for easier backing without clobbering the building. The renter of the other side gets a 10 wide door and provides me with an insurance policy.

And to answer 2air at the same time, it is a rental sign and I am going to put the tires on cardboard this week.

Great job! The Amish are great craftsman and always at a reasonable price. I have a 30x40 hanger for our Airstream. I just wish I had the 28 yard's of concrete for the floor. Oh well the next owner can do it.
I agree with 2air,jack up the airstream,get the tires off the floor and let the rubber in the axles relax. They will last a lot longer.

We use RV "landing pads". They're thin plastic and not too much money. I forgot where we got them but they're a pretty good product.
