quick n' dirty winter storage
« on: October 20, 2010, 03:32:36 AM »


Busy lately putting on a long planned new addition to the garage... total cost so far under 1G.

Doors will throw it over that though, starting work on them today, the
building is only 12' x 20' instead of 18' x 20' due to cost constraints, but no
matter how big it's never enough anyhow:

Hey Chris, no, Leo's wife was sick so that delayed it, last I heard he
was supposed to leave AZ yesterday, but I haven't heard from him yet...
the Olds is why I finally got off my duff and started on this shed, the
F3 will go in there so I can have room to work on the '56 this winter
in heated comfort... not a problem that you AZ guys have to face!

Yes, I may despise the weather in Kern County but I do not have to "winterize" my cars.  I guess I should be happy.

It'll get leveled out and gravel spread over plastic film. 
Eventually hope to pour a slab over the gravel using the bottom 2 bys
as forms, did it with a garage in VT about 10 yrs ago, worked great...
but a poured floor takes yet more money - and it seems like any spare
cash always goes into yet another car, necessitating more storage!!
D'oh!

I only have a single car garage, so with the 48 Desoto coming I now need to look for storage.  Hope to go see a fellow tonight about heated, concrete floor, alarmed storage for $60 a month....don't seem bad to me.

What, no shear walls?  I could have had my garage done if I could have done that.dana442010-10-20 23:54:45

Well the diagonals and metal sheathing and roofing screwed to the girts
and purlins in effect counteract any shear and racking, but this ain't
California so we don't have to get all fancy, not having to worry about
earthquakes and all ... plus it's attached to an existing building,
Simpson brackets screwed to a big ledger.  Now, 30" of wet snow,
that we do have to worry about!

"I wish I could build anything"  you can Steve, anyone with your
automotive know-how can do carpentry, that's for sure... don't be
afraid to try... just use screws you can take out ;-)

another view.  never used metal siding before but I like it, it's light and strong, and pre-painted!

That's what's in my mind - seepage and all the moisture.  I would imagine that could cause some real damage over a winter.

30" of slush is incredibly heavy, improperly built structures collapse
with regularity here in the NE. As far as moisture intrusion is
concerned, grading is key... water management, has to flow away from
the building, correct ventilation is important too.
