If I don't build a shed, I'll never loose my keys...:mrgreen:

Scotty is correct. A standalone shed is what I need to design and build. We are in Hurricane country here, so a garage door type opening is the best bet for me. I can leave it up about a foot in case of rising water (cart will be somewhere else. I have room for a 8' wide shed, and about 10' to 12' depth. I think that should be enough. Since it is a little tight, I may even put in a side door to exit easily.

Thoughts? :help:

The cart has a 4'x8' footprint or roughly 4x10 with a rear seat foot step. Check the carts height by placing a long 2x4 on the roof and measuring to the floor on all 4 sides. You may find it taller in the rear. What ever it is you will need a few inches clearance. Remember an overhead door does not totally clear the opening.

A standard garage door is 8' wide by 7' tall (with a little less clearance as Scotty said). Narrower that standard means custom order panels ($$$). In hurricane country I would use this.

Trust me, we use both....:lhmo:

Went to my garage door guy and he said that a 8X7 foot door is a standard, and that should work. Now I need to build the structure to house it....
Looked at the roll down type and they were more expensive that the garage door type. My guy quoted me $499 installed, and I think that's a deal even for a manual one... is that a good price?

That would be a good price around here. So you are going 10' wide? The walk through door is a great idea for safety and you don't have to open the big one each time you go in.

Is the $499 for roll up or standard?

Standard garage door....

I am looking at a 8 wide by 12 deep and 8 high with a small walk thru door if necessary. I am limited to 7' or 8' wide and 12' deep...

Sounds like a fair price. A couple of years ago I had to replace my two 8 footers. Was $350 each, for doors and tracks and my labor.
