Re: Out Building - Storage/Pavilion
yep. i built a 20x30 pavillion a few years ago. actually i rebuilt an old carport my dad had built in the 80's into a pavillion. it already had a 6x6 walk-in cooler on one end with a tap system and it is used mainly for storage unless i am running a keg. it is the best thing i have ever done at my camp. i have been slowly improving it over the past couple years. i started putting a kitchen in there with a stove and sink and counter tops. i have it furnished with sturdy, yet comfortable office chairs and a "pleather" lazyboy that can withstand some moisture when the wind blows a little rain underneath. i put a corrugated metal roof on it and a gravel floor.
one word of advice, go big. 20x30 is a nice size because you can sit out there in a downpour and not get wet. the only time any moisture comes in is if the rain is coming sideways and even then it doesn't hit the very middle.
i store my mower, wheelbarrow, etc under there along with the lawn furniture and bikes.
go for it. you will love it
