Building RV Garage Finally

Hello, Well three break ins later, tv units both stolen, broken locks and glass, the bedspread taken and the sleep number remote (who can explain these thugs..?) we are building a garage at home for our 2009 Charleston 40' pusher. Here are the pictures after just 3 days of framing, these guys are fast! Will be running 50 amps out when they are done, no plans to insulate or get crazy yet, may do it later on once the TX heat starts hitting.

Very nice. I have a 30 X 50 barn but I built it before I ever had a trailer. Just two feet higher and I would have an enclosed storgage area. Live and learn. Size does matter!

Looks great! What are the dimensions? Are you going to put a roll up door on the front? I highly encourage you to insulate walls and ceiling. It is fairly cheap and you won't have to worry so much about winterizing or frozen pipes! You won't regret it.

I would do the ceiling at least, Lowes has the stuff for a DIY blown in insulation job.

Its 25 X 45. Yes, it will be a roll up door on the front. I will insulate it I am sure, as I did freeze the ice maker valve last year.

What part of TX? I'm in south MS and it will freeze lines if left outside in the winter. But I don't worry anymore since I have my building!

Yeah - occasionally it does and if you don't believe it,just try to buy a water spigot freeze cover at Lowes or Home Depot when the Weathermen predicts freezing temperatures here

Built a 30X40 for the truck and car.......

Now no room for either...... but I do have a fridge in the corner with beer.
