Finally got a place to put the Cub under cover in the summer. It has has to sit outside for the summer most of the last 14 years. I just put up a 10x10 "tent" style shed for it, and a few other things to get them out of the weather. Was not the easiest thing to put up alone,m but I got it done. It is inside the "corral" [I call it}. Last year I putup a 24x24 fenced in area to store all my stuff and get it out of sight. This winter the Cub and snow blower will go in the garage, and summer things will go in this shed.
I have two myself. Got about one year out of them before sun got the better of the tops
Made a mess of this post, trying again, lots of pix. We used the frames from 2 heavier versions of your tent/canopy? Found here dead after some windstorms. We scrounge. We did a little cutting to add more side supports, drilled for screws, sank the corner posts into larger bits, then added scrounged tin, and bought a few studs to make the doors. I hope I can get these in the right order...Well, I think they'll be in backwards order, I'll move on to the next reply to post the last 2 pix, sorry guys, but I hope our idea will help you all.
Here are the last 2 pix, I think it came out pretty well,I patched the old screw holes with aluminum A/C duct tape, the actual metal tape, not the fabric kind, then we wirebrushed & painted the walls outside with aluminum Rustoleum. That's my husband-J.W. He's tired. It took awhile, we only get to go up there one day a week. But, you could probably do it in one weekend with more than 3 family members. Or, more tools.
An interesting take on Cub coverings Seeing as you live way down yonder in Louisianne way, structures like what we have up here don't seem to be necessary. I too am a recycler/scrounger (Navy trained - scrounging is an art form ). You made good use of what you had hanging around. Very nice way to accomplish both .. use what you have to build what you need Your hubby looks pooped but pretty pleased too - well done
Hey, if it works then it works. Those mini-garages are kinda popular up here in some of the subdivisions. The heavier ones actually stand up to a fair amount of snow. Let us know how this one holds up for you.
The area where the Cub lives has serious water flow across the land during heavy (frequent!) rains. We left a few inches between the tin and the ground, we may finish and insulate later, but we needed to build this in a hurry. Rain was coming! I dragged two rows of gravel into her wheel ruts! We might have to plan on winterizing her, too. We have to drain the house waterlines, empty the toilets, then cover them with blankets to keep them from breaking. That would be a disaster! Louisiana is NOT for sissies!
Fine job on the cubs new home
