    Here's a few pics of my new 12x12x8 Shed-in-a-box storage building for the equipment I have recently acquired (Gravely 817 utility tractor with attatchments, Troy Bilt chipper/shredder/truckloader, Troy Bilt rototiller, Echo trimmer, Mantis mini-tiller). I got it put together in about 4 hours, and is perfect for storing the rest of my equipment I can't fit in my main building!

    Here's the pics:

    I have a 26x32 shop and a 14x20 shed but I am out of room. I need a place to store fert and salt. How much did that cost and does it sweat?

    Thanks guys! I paid $299 for it, from Northerntool.com. So far as I can tell, it doesn't "sweat", but again I've only had it for a little over 2 weeks.

    Thanks, my main building has pretty much remained the same, I just couldn't fit any more equipment into it. I can also store fertilizer, salt, calcium chloride, etc in my new storage building.

    How is it anchored to the ground? Or is it?... is the thing pretty stable or will a good wind knock it over?

    It's anchored in 6 places by large augers that screw in to the ground about 2'. Is it stable and well built...h*ll yeah!!! I put it up the day before a day when we had 60MPH winds, and 2" of rain, and it had no problem weathering the storm at all!

    Saw a few of those rolling around last week when whe had 30+ winds and 60+ gusts.
    Our city has required any temporary building be secured to the ground.
