I was planning to build a woodshed this year. Found lots of different examples and designs online, but the cost seems to be a minimum of $300 in materials and could go higher (roofing is particularly expensive). Then I thought about alternatives and was wondering if anybody has tried these carport/canopies and if so, how well did it work out? Costco sells one that looks great, its only $165, the sides can be completely removed if you want, it uses steel pipes which are generally quite strong and durable. I just don't know how long the material will last, or how well it would handle snow accumulation, or long term exposure to wind/rain/sun but if its supposed to be used as a carport then you'd think it would be built to last a long time out in the elements. If you used the dimensions of 10x20x7 this bad boy holds 11 cords of wood! (overkill for me, but may allow for walking space or extra gaps for air circulation). Their new version this year has a vented top which I think is also very nice. Box weighs 200 lbs, attached is a picture. Seems like this would be so much easier than building one from scratch, and a lot cheaper too. I would put down cover underneath (tarps or cardboard) then pallets on top of that to get the wood off the ground, and possibly some posts in various places with concrete footings to support the wood piles and keep it from leaning against the canopy ribs. Thoughts?
