Nice building, few little up grades and my wife would never see me!

After confirming you have no leaks, hit it with some closed cell spray foam insulation. banana

Kicker, I now have the installers number and they sell them on the side even cheaper!


Really nice! How long did it take them to install?


7 hrs ! They were cruising!

That is really good looking ..... nice job.
do you wish you had made it "shorter" --- not so tall ?
how big is your garage door ? it appears to be 8ft tall and 10ft wide ???

were the side braces (wall to top) "standard" ?
I did not see that feature on their model building computer program.

I knew someone would catch that cord lol!
I'm working on finishing the electrical today, porch light and a couple plugs then its done.
As far as other upgrades, I put it as close to the current cave as possible. Already got fireplace, A/C, massive stereo system, half bath, office. If it gets any nicer it might cut into fishing hours banana

I built a 20' X 30' a few years ago for my 21' Skeeter. Then put in a good reloading bench, TV, refrigerator, and hung all my deer heads on the wall. Great place to go chill. You will love it

Actually I'm tall so its perfect for me to walk in the boat and not worry about the lights. And taller the better in summer for heat!
Ya its 10x8 door perfect for my boat.
All the braces are standard, they have more when its wind or snow rated, this is the cheap version only upgrades were 12 gauge instead of 14 and some mobile home anchors I added. Last one I got was the other frame style and it is a little nicer trim wise but I didn't see the need on this one. I went cheap, any money saved goes towards ultrex fund!
