Default garage destroyed..

My shelterlogic tent garage thing ripped right in half tonight because of michigans constant wind that never stops.

Pipes still look good. May wanna try going to an army surplus and see if you can find some heavy canvas, instead of the weaved vinyl tarp material.

if you have the $$$ you could always use corrugated metal... my grandfather had a second garage added and the frame looks just like yours his is just made with corrugated metal.
