ClearSpan Econoline storage buildings

Has anybody tried these out. Looks like inexpensive way to keep equipment out of the weather. Could even use it to keep materials dry as well.

Never bought a building from Farm Tek but I've been happy with the other stuff I've bought from them. If you were looking at a fabric cover I had one on a trailer that held up very well.

We have one. This is actually our second. The first one we got was a different brand and lasted 7 years until we got two snowfalls that were over 2 feet back to back and the framework on the first one collapsed. The fabric had been doing fine. That one was not a "ClearSpan" but when that one went our insurance covered it and we added about 3 grand and got a bigger one. The one we have now is a "Clear Span"

We have had it about 3 years. It looks like new. I don't recall the exact size of the one we have now but I would guess at 30' x 70'.

I really can't say anything except good things about it. The only negative I can think of is that it does let the sun through so we do get a pretty good crop of weeds inside the tent along the outer walls so we do need to weed wack that every once in a while.

Otherwise the framework is sturdy the materials used for the cover are durable and high quality and I would say to go for it.

My business is different from yours but basically we use it to store equipment and supplies much as you are talking about.

I am going to post a photo and you can see ours in the background of the photo. I don't have any photos that just show the tent, storage building or whatever you want to call it.

Actually we may add a second one. I am looking at two options, one is expanding our building which would be the most expensive of the options and the second is adding another clear span storage building which would be much less expensive but not quite as helpful. If I do add another then I might opt for the ends on it to make it more secure from theft. We have open ends on the one we have now.

Good topic, I just ordered a 26x96 to use as a pheasant coop for a project at school. How easy are these to instal? I have a class of 5 high school kids that will be doing it.

As long as you measure right it just bolts together.
