Default Garage

Looking to purchase a garage/building for my coach. Does anyone have a line on a bare bones metal building that will house my coach. I have about 10K to start the project.

Have you considered a hoop building? The covering lasts 10 plus years. They are much cheaper. They get light, so none needed during the day.

I imagine that some zoning will not allow, on the farm here, they work great!

30 wide, 50 long, 15 high, plus what ever height you build a pony wall to. $5300

I chose 12x12 overhead doors when we had a 11'6" Vogue motor home. It barely works with our WB42. I have to de-flate the suspension to keep from wiping the rear a/c from the roof. We have 14' side walls with 12' doors. Hind sight being what it is, I should have chosen 15-16' walls with 14' tall doors. Doors 12' wide work well for now, but as my eyes get older 13-14' wide would be easier backing in or pulling out.
Go bigger than you think you need. Having enough room to work around your bus with work benches etc. Taller side walls would give more room on the roof of your bus. I either have to crawl under or climb through the bottom of the trusses.

I will look at them. I have a small farm, 10 acres.

Not sure it will help you Lance, but I enlarged an existing pole barn, it had 14' eaves the addition has 16' with a 14' door had to remind the contractor I wanted two trusses running the length 48' so I wouldn't have to climb around trusses, I have enough room up there I could build another room. Cost was about 12k wish I had concrete, wish I had a pit, wish I had heat and cooling, but sure am glad bus is under cover and so am I when working on it.

I was considering a pole barn. Would have to find someone to put it up. I built a 20 x 40 tractor shed last fall and it wore me out.

I can relate to that all I did was tell the contractor what he was doing wrong or that he had to re-do what he had done wrong and that wore me out.

Lance: Look at my album for my car/RV port. They made it the way I wanted, with snow load supports. I put in the concrete footings at each corner, next I think I will put a shade cloth curtain on the front. About $ 9K.

P.S. my 1st car was a 1967 Galaxie 500 4 door w/ 289 v8. A neighbor gave it to me with a blown cylinder. Great car to learn on, and was the only one in auto shop we had to work on. Sold it to pay 1st year of college and buy a mustang.
