In many instances, portable garages and carports are seen as a convenient approach to storage. These metal-framed shelters with a valance-style or fully-enclosed polyethylene cover are extremely efficient and effective over time. An additional asset is being able to put up and take down such shelters over the course of many years. But, what if you want enclosed, long-term shelter? Blueprints and purchasing your own materials are a thing of the past. Garage kits include all essential supplies to create a long-term, permanent storage shelter on your property.
While similar, in concept, to portable garages, garage kits start as pole barns, or wood and galvalume metal structures with four walls and a roof. One or more doors allow vehicles, supplies, and other investments to go in and out. Kit manufacturers, as well, provide the option of customization. DIYPoleBarns.com, for instance, not only provides a choice of colors but additionally offers variable features. From overhangs, sliding doors, and wainscoting to closure strips, vents, skylight panels, or cupolas, kits can be designed for standard storage or a specific use, such as sheltering animals.
Garage kits, additionally, offer ample interior room and height. As a result, a single structure may be large enough to hold one or more cars used every day or be reliable storage for seasonal vehicles, such as boats and RVs. Like other shelters starting from a kit, pole barns allow for light to come in or stay out and for air to circulate.
Garage kits, as well, get as close to a brick-and-mortar structure as you can get without constructing such a structure from the ground up. In addition to any space for storage, the erected shelter opens the possibility of use as a workshop or utility shed for repairing vehicles or other items.
