    really clean that garage, if it's not a collectors item, or hasen't been touched in 5 years give it to the salvation army and get a tax write of for your folks, then give the wight off to them as an x-mas present..........then convince them that love can be measured in "Man Space" and thats what a garage should be! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I am gonna have to agree with supersize, my garage is my garage. The tent deals are actually pretty cool. If the building code people get a wild hair then they can be a drag due to the square footage. Just make sure you anchor it to the ground, when it is windy they grow legs.

    They dont like the wind too much. Ours has a tear on every seem it was folded at out of the box. Its only a year old. And on a side note they dont hold up too well when hit with a car.

    You should check out the Steel Buildings in the magazine, They hold up pretty good and can fit tall trucks too.
    I have one just to fit my 3 blazers and all the junk I think of.
    But thats up to you on how you want to shelter your things,
    Mine has also withstanded a hurricane, so you know how bad those winds get.
