Anybody use one of these for tractor storage? I can get an 18x21 installed for $695 on level ground. They double in price to put metal to the ground on both sides and one end. I'm thinking of doing that part myself. JC

I have two, one for the vechiles and one for tractor an associated equipment and general storage. The one for the cars has a lower roof and half sides. I think the one for the tractor was called industrial. Mine are 22' X 22' cars fit great. The one for the tractor is the same size just higher, with sides to the ground. It holes a tractor, daughters S-10, lawnmower, tiller, cinderblocks and still plenty of room. Cold weather is not a problem here. Prepare the site what ever size you want concrete, gravel, dirt floor. If it is dirt or gravel they drive long rods as hold downs. Concrete they use fastners, in case of a Hurricane I doubt if I will ever see either one again. They can build what ever size fits your pocketbook. I have one one gravel and one concrete. Make sure the concrete slab is square because when they show up everything is precut for your site. To mexican guys showed up from Al. in a dodge dualie with a 30' trailor. They had put two up that day and mine was the third. It was up and they were gone in 2 1/2 hours to put the 4th up before dark 50 miles away. One was $750 the other was $1100 plus the slab. These two units have serviced my needs fully. My neighbor saw mine and had two built. The back side of one is inclosed with a storage room looks real good. Mine are open on both ends. If you are any kind of a carpenter I think you can close it in in a few days. Any more questions feel free.

They're pretty durable. I'm cleaning up the Hurricane Katrina mess on the Gulf Coast. Where I'm staying in a travel trailer at a used car lot they sold them here. It was pulled off the foundation and found a few blocks away--sustained very little damage. The 200mph wind pulled it out of the foundation. Then, like my trailer was submerged under 30 feet of sea water for 8 hours. The galvanized finish held up well. By the way, I saw the 5-man crew set a new one up on the old pad in 45 minutes.

Good I've found this thread because I'm planning to also create one by myself.
