Looks great, standard sized garages are tough. Larger ones are so much nicer.

You did a fantastic job. The whole compound looks great.

I had one built last year by Pioneer out of PA. I absolutely love having my 30x60x12. I should have gone bigger though. 30x75x14 would have been better. That way I could leave the boat and truck hooked up. I am also babysitting a Donzi cruiser with an arch for 2 years while my buddy is working overseas. I can't fit his boat inside due to the arch. I also went with the "bubble wrap" insulation on my whole building, and am very happy with it. The one thing that surprised me was the price of the garage doors. I have bought cars cheaper than what I paid for those two doors.

Looks great and goes with the house well.

You thinking about insulating/running heat out there for the cold months?

We were floating off of St Joe last yr, listening to Cubs game in Chicago. A hell of a storm blew into Chicago, and we headed in immediately. Lots of boats were headed out of piers as St J skys still looked very clear. I tried to warn folks via VHF. Anyhow, we yanked drove home & tucked boat in barn, just as hailstorm hit. Truck does not fit, so I had to unhook & shoot over to garage.

Actually, we just swapped out small garage door to raise rails to rafters, so I can now fit the whole rig.

I never thought of that, but you are exactly right.

I find myself taking the boat out of the barn two or 3 days in a row; for one thing or another. Each trip means a hook up or a disconnect. Its not that big of a deal, but its still a bit more work.

That is an awesome setup.... Have just started exploring what it will mean to do something like this. Bouncing between sweat equity and jobing it out. If you don't mind, what was your total $$ for completion?

Nice Job!! That's my plan. Trying to find one already set up, but if I build my own I know it will be what I want.

Nice setup............everything here in S FL has to be hurricane proof so it doesn't blow away in the next storm so the building would be built out of block down here.
