    Does anybody use 2 storage containers with some sort of roof set up over the 2 as their garage. If so do you have any pictures?

    i slid rr ties under one they were setting yesterday. i was looking at it and it would be very nice shop/storage. might get one my self behind the shop to free up space inside the shop. the one yesterday was 48' long. very roomy.

    We did that in Iraq. Spaced them about 30' apart. One was set up as the office, we had it plumbed with AC, lights, and a phone. The other was set up as storage with shelving. We covered the middle with camo netting. Worked damb slick.

    So yeah, find yourself some camo netting. lol

    Or you could get trusses cheap from a building supply store and build a flat roof up there, would make a nice place to relax on cool days. Depends what your view is though.

    The company that dose the plowing for the mall here, has that, and uses a arch roof to cover the salt they keep in it, for the winter. will try to get pic's in a few days.

    I have been thinking of using one for storage, and putting one on the top for an office. This is a pic , of what I mean, except the bottom would be the barn door type.
