Boat Storage Cost Outrageous. Built my own.

Got the boat home and did some checking on Storage and every one wanted $190+ a month. My dad came in town and him and I did what we do best, build stuff. Its a 30x15x10 with a 10x8 Garage door. Its basically a glorified poll barn. Vinyl siding and R panel metal Roof Slab will be poured later when i redue my drive. Cost in Materials 3400. Bonding with my 60 y/o dad priceless. Took us about 5 days working in 105* Texas heat but we got it done.

I would worry about moisture with the dirt floor. You might consider putting a layer of gravel down.

190 bucks a month is steep. I found a place 2 miles from my house for 39 bucks a month. I was thinking that was high until I read your post.

I pay $35 a month to keep mine under a metal garage with no walls during the week. Stays dry and always in the shade.
