New storage from the ashes.
« on: July 13, 2012, 03:14:08 PM »
Instead of killing myself and spending weeks in pain I paid someone to do it.
3 ½ hours start to finish.
All I have to do now is put tin on the sides. I can save a few bucks and not have to spend much time on a ladder.

Looks cool, literally !, also looks smaller in the picture. I could use about 10 of those, that tin is not cheap anymore !

I hope you dont get the wind gusts that we do, that thing would be a kite here! From the looks of the trees, you are probably good. We have ZERO trees, and its flatter than **** here with lots of wind. Im constantly dealing with wind damage. Ive thought about buying one of those, for outside work, but I dont know how long it would last.

I had a fiberglass panel RIPPED out of the roof of one of my pole barns last week. All the new gutters I put on the house last year, one is left, all RIPPED off the house ! Im always in the adjacent fields recovering something that blew away !

Looks nice, I could really use one of those.

BK the flat landers have been having the same problem around here this year. All the fields are full of tin.

The Jet stream is usually right overhead here, so November through April, regardless of the weather, we have wind every day, and then in the summer, the wind dies down to nothing, but the storms roll through and we never ever get "just" rain events here, its always a cold front pushing though, squaw line, and high winds on the leading edge of the front, up to 70mph, and then followed with rain.

There also several thousand 400' windmills in my AO. Thats a sign...if you buried in windmills, there might be some wind.
