As far assit leveling etc I am not considering that as site prep. I got excavators and guys on payroll who will do that while we are slow. Along with my electrical, plumbing etc it will all be hourly workers when I am slow so I'm not really counting those cost. Just cost to set poles, put on siding, insulate, and hang garage doors. After being dryed in Im all good

stanard garage doors are 16' wide the better. and like others have said doors on sides or back, great for air flow and when you have to get the lawn mower out you dont have to move the Boat. also epoxy the floor and not the menards cheap stuff. or save some money and use asphault, I have a 40x120 and it was cheaper to have a paving crew do it,then I could buy concrete for. just seal coat it for the 1st 2 years to fill the voids. the seal coat will not breakdown cause its not in the elements. lastly insulating a pole building is a must or it condensates

I have never built a specialized and that's where I had questions on. like I said this is not the barn I will use forever it's a quick fix I can pay for throught my company instead of paying 215/mo for rental space. There is only one rental space locally with bays big enough (15x40)that I can access whenever. The cheap ones are the ones where u have to call and have them get my boat out before I come and I don't like that. We will be building a new home in 2-3 years and I will build my dream shop there.
If you can pull that off for $7500 I say more power too you. Mine is beefy because of our county codes (2x6 purlins and ribs, 2x12 headers, 24" diameter holes that are 48" deep etc. etc. I figure I have over 2k in this insulation alone after shipping ( http://www.insulation4less.com/Insul...l-72-Inch.aspx ). I suppose if you live in county where you don't have to deal with permits and stuff that will help as well.

When You start it do a thread so the rest of us can see what you come up with.

My garage is 58' x 30' with 12' height, actually it's a basement/garage. Have a 12' x 10' door on the back and (2) 9'x9' on the front. I could drive through with my Cig T/G, now with the MTI I have to back in the 12' door. The length has enough room to pull drives and work behind the boat. I have an i-beam and could pull the engines in the Cig if I removed the hatch and the blowers. No way can I do that with the MTI it's too tall on the trailer. 14' minimum next go round.

Looking now at building a pole barn 36' x 72' w/16' ceiling. MTI trailer with the drive guard is 48' and with a long bed dually I'll be able to leave the truck hooked up.

They are NEVER big enough!!

I bought a 12' X 40' "portable garage" from www.garagedepot.com. If I remember it ran about $3,000. It's not beautiful but serves its prupose til I can build my dream shop. PS- I would highly recommend a garage door taller than 10'. Good luck and post pics.
