    Finally added a roof to the sand and salt shed. No more shoveling.

    Nice set up, how do you like the wood structure vs going with the poly dome?

    That looks great. You should hang the tarp as a curtain to make it easier to pull back for access.

    Wow only 15 hundred? That looks awesome. Did that price include getting the floor poured? I have a camp up by you, be nice to check out the operation some day. What do you do for work in the summer?

    Hang the industrial tarps on a good 1/4" cable and slide them open.
    Make sure on the bottom you hang a weight. We use a section of pipe or similar for weight to hold the tarp down.
    Also put eye hooks at the corners with quick clips to stretch it tight to prevent wind movement.

    That's a great setup , I understand the cable and canvas idea...more or less trying to figure out how to support it with it being over 14' tall

    Nice looking sand shed. Having the sand undercover is the answer. I hate having to scalp it first.
