Portable Garage

23 Jan

..its been a couple of weeks but I have not updated as to the status of our portable garage so I thought I might. In early December we finished the floor for the bedroom but by the time I was ready to start finishing more wood for the floor it got wet again..and would remain wet so I decided to buy a portable garage to put the wood in over the winter. It might not dry out in there but at least it should be ready in the Spring.

..after 17 easy complicated steps it was all done!

We have had 2-3 storms since it went up and it has faired well..yesterday it was very windy and I could hear it but it has stood up so far. In the summer we will move it somewhere else. I also have an easier way to keep the chicken feed dry. When I did finish putting it up there was already 2-3 inches of snow down so it is now a sheet of ice in there..plus whenever it does heat up above freezing the moisture has nowhere to go so it has been forming on the inside of the roof. After the first heavy snow I also had to go out and brush it off..there is no problem with 10cm but a 40cm storm would probably be an issue.

      yes..not nearly as bad as it will be..or could be! Usually its 3-4 times as much..it looks like more around the garage due to the snow being knocked off the roof. Its just plain cold now..5 days in a row below -15c…I think it was warmer in the coop then it was in the house when we got home last night!
