Couple of years ago we picked up a Sam's Club cheapo temporary garage. I knew it was flimsy but it held up for 3 years so I feel I got my money out of it. Looking for something more rugged now. Looking for at least 10'W x 20'L x 8'H. Prefer the dome style roof. Searching the interweb for local dealers that also install all I can find are internet chain places. Anyone know a place local to Central MA (Spencer) that sells and does installs?

Nashua has a Cover-It dealer that I'm pretty sure installs also. Don't know if he goes out to you neck of the woods, but may be able to point you in the right direction.

I went poking around this morning. Nothing at Harbor Freight. Found an option at the Essex County Co-op, though. Not sure what brand they deal - the display said Cover-it and the brochure inside says Shelter Logic. But whatev, I have dimensions to check into and prices to go by, and the actual dealer (just an advertising display at the co-op) is a few towns over in Newbury.

Laura doesn't go out in the backyard much, so when we were showing her sister some of the work we did out there last fall she said "wow, I'm kinda embarrassed" so clearly I need a pop-up garage to put some of my junk under (c:

From this brochure thingy, the size you want would be $540 for the 9oz standard material or $760 for the 14.5oz heavy material.

That's for a 12W x 20L x 8H dome/round version.

OOOOh, it says "all garages come with 2 doors and stakes."

DID YOU SAY STEAK!???

Good to know. How long have you had it? How did fair with all the snow this winter?

There's a new TSC in Leicester 1 town over. Maybe I will take a trip.

It went up last fall. Seems good so far. It's still standing strong after all the snow.

It was $350. Though they are advertised on their website for $299 right now.
