Pretty sweet Chris! Same but slightly bigger with a single 14'x18' door. Inside finsih 15'8". (Rat walls brought the height up) I will have a 90% furnace with AC. What the heck, it could get hot in there. I also ended up with a bathroom, shower, toilet, and marble floors. (Just kidding about the marble ) They'll be setting posts tomorrow and trusses by either Saturday or Monday. Should be able to get the toys in next week! I'll get over there today and get some pics of the progress. Should make working on those Merc's a little more pleasurable!

Over the top Kevin! But I think the AC may really be just to keep fuel from leaking out the vent after you top off the tank.

What are you using to get it onto the dollies and what kind of dollies. I would like to be able to take the boat off the trailer to get some bottom cleaning done over the winter. I thought of an overhead steel beam arrangement. I also have a 28' Pontoon boat I would like to store inside on dollies so I could move it around as well.

Yard Arm out of Indy can set you up with dollys on a craddle. Enjoy the toy box, mines 42 by 64 with 3 overheads. Steve
