I definitely need a bigger shed. It looks packed when I have both cars in there.

Space, the eternal problem...

I did buy a 20' shipping container to get some extra space.... now it has become the Sporty's home!

A 40 foot shipping container would be ideal.
I see they are using shipping containers to make pools now!

Yup! pools, homes, anything you can imagine! 40' was too big (aesthetic) for my setup... I might get another 20' soon.

One of my friends back home went the shipping container route. But he did two 40' space about 20' apart and put rafters over the whole thing and a wall on one end to make a large carport in between them. And since it's technically not a building, no building permit required.

Expanding





About a 10 degree drop in the shade. Fan helps.
