Exclamation Construction of a "tractorport"...

Extending my shed to shelter the Mahindra from the elements:









Now I need to finish the Western wall and roof!

Looks very nice Mowin' Man, but a question..... what do you plan to do with the water runoff from the old, existing roof, or is there more of a gap there than it looks like?

There is about a 1/2" gap. It was not meant to be water-tight - the water will hit the wall and be diverted to the concrete below.

Basically this will be a drive through carport for the Mahindra!

Thanks!

"test fit" for the Mahindra:



My son and I got a chance to make some good progress on the west wall this past weekend and Monday before the savage cold front rolled in:

Got 1/3 of roof done yesterday:







Now I just have to lay the 2 x 6 horizontals and then the galvalum on top of that and then the tractorport will be done!

Did you use hurricane clips on the rafters? If not, with the kind of winds you guys get there and because it's open on both ends, it might be worth considering!

You bet I did - after the winds I got last April! Now fewer than 19 wood screws per rafter with the hurricane plates at both ends!
