Ecoboost Stalker Needs a Home

Three cars and a two car garage... what to do?  Build another mini garage of course!  With the goal of keeping the new arrival out of the weather in Texas (heat, cold, rain and hail) it was time to get to work.  The front section is stationary and the rear section is on casters allowing it to telescope/overlap over the front section by about a foot.  I'll insulate it with radiant barrier foam board and radiant barrier fabric.  I think I'll use thin aluminum sheet for the exterior roof and clad the sides with a LP siding product I used on the storage structure you see in the pictures.  It's easy to work with, looks nice and is easy to finish.  It'll probably end up with better climate control and protection than my existing garage.

I'll be able to pull in to the front section, get out and then close it up with the rear.  It has been a fun project but I have to stop by about 11 am when the recent temperatures start getting about the century mark.  Here's some pictures.

Roof is on!  Now just trim and paint to go.  90% done and 90% to go. 

 

BTW, the BAT get together this past weekend at "The Shop" in Dallas was a lot of fun. I got to meet a fellow USA7s traveler, PanAmericano with his Birkin.  They actually parked us almost next to each other.

@panamericanoYes, the parking pad slopes gently to the front of the enclosure and so far no problems... but then it hasn't rained much lately.  I'll keep an eye on it.  Thanks for the tip and it was great meeting you last Saturday.
