Temperary Shed For Year Long Refit

On Monday our 38' yawl will be hauled for a yearlong major refit. Originally we planned on building a shed using 2x4 lumber and shrink wrap but a fisherman refitting his boat at the same yard suggested we look into a prefab steel framed shed like the one he was using. His was made by a company named Shelter Logic, we looked them up on-line and found a 40'x14'x12' for around $3500. We also found a same sized shed built by Global Industrial for $2100. Was wondering if anyone here has bought/made a shed for their boat and has any pointers? Appreciate any help. Cold New England winter coming soon!

Re: Temperary Shed For Year Long Refit

I built my shed from plans form Stimson marine.

Stimson Marine - Bow-Roof Shed

20 x 32 ended up costing me a little over a grand. I covered it with shrink wrap plastic which is ok for a year. Any longer and I'd look into a better covering material.

You can read back through our blog to see how it went together.

Re: Temperary Shed For Year Long Refit

Just a question, what ya gonna do with it when your done with the work?? If your in a yard, ya gonna take it apart and take it home ? If ya can't sell it or move it, seems like a temperary would be better, At least to me !

Re: Temperary Shed For Year Long Refit

One of the reasons of buying a prefab over building one from scratch with lumber and shrink wrap is that we could possible sell the prefab after we are done with the refit.

Re: Temperary Shed For Year Long Refit

Just leave it up, plenty you will find to build and store. Besides anyone can tell you a planed "1 year" project will take no less than 2 if you're lucky.

Re: TempOrary(sic) Shed For Year Long Refit

One, a temporary building, whether prefab or one-off, meets local building codes.
Two, a temporary building, such as the bow-roof shed, or the enormous , log legged and long span sawhorses I built, don't cost much and can be quickly demolished and recycled.
Three, cost and local acceptance of strange structures seem more relevant than other options.

Quick (and, maybe, dirty) seems very attractive for the single-purpose objective many of us have. I see no issue here.
