I surrendered to THE DARK SIDE...

Posted By Andy Campbell

Congratulations!
Thats the first big step,Getting her to agree you need it!And she actually said to get it! Amazing!! You've got a real keeper there Ivan! My first obs. was an Arrow 8 x 10 that I made to roll off(Actually it was a slide off!). It worked fine! The only problem I had with it was dew! It would dew up with the roof closed or open. The walls and everything in it would be wet all the time. It was on a concrete slab with no vapor barrier underneath and I think that was the problem! If I did it again I would make sure that moisture from below would be eliminated somehow and maybe add a couple of vents to allow air to flow through.

Piers made out of 4x4x4's

Posted By Andy Campbell

How about a concrete footing in the ground with anchor bolts. you could just cut the bolts and cover it with dirt or something if you ever moved. Any welding shop could make a pier with the proper angle and a base plate on it. And you could reuse the pier wherever you go providing you don't change your latitude to much!
