They charge $26 a foot here, but that covers Sept. 1st - June 1st.

$15 a foot includes in and out at marina plus oil change shrink wrap and covered storage. Ends up being about $350 every year.

Very nice! We were paying around $120 (cheap compared to others). My wife likes you barn and just asked/said we should build that on our property. I like it!

now keep her on the water on a hoist for the first year!
That was going to be my question. What did the homeowners association say, if anything.

Around here if you build something it has to be "like" material exterior. IE, house is brick then the garage must be brick.

Looks great. What about venting?

Any thoughts about termites with wood that low to the ground?

That's a good deal. I called a local place with a 40' covered spot, gated and locked. They wanted $120/month...which would have *almost* been do-able. I figured the boat was about 20', so I could also put some other stuff under there (canoe, or old car). But they would not allow anything besides the boat. Told them I was paying for the entire 40' and wanted to use all of it, but they wouldn't budge.

$214 per month for a 12x25 garage 1000yds from my house. Still want to build a 2-car garage in my back yard. I feel like I could refinance and roll the cost into my mortgage for that much...

Nice, I wish I had time and those skills.

I am having a garage built now at the lake. 14 x 28 with a 10 (w) x (h) 9 door.

It is going to be a tight fit but it should work.

I did the same thing for the same reason about 12 years ago, only not so elegantly finished (it sits behind my storage garage, out of sight on a back corner of the property. I used the same pole barn frame but covered it with sheet steel. Rock floor, no concrete. It cost me $1100 back then when indoor winter storage locally was $600 and weatherproof covers were at least that.

If you don't have it, I'd strongly suggest electricity. I keep my boat on a charger all winter and have at least one convection drier running to prevent mold.
