Ouch!!

Good idea with the wood around the bottom, is there no way of securing to the floor?

No thankfully. Just missed the windows of the house by a fraction, the car inside didn't get touched (other than full of leaves and crap from the rain overnight) but the canopy got a few light tears where it hit the house! Could of been a lot worse - might have to build a wooden garage next.

Sorry to see this buddy but thank goodness there was nothing worse than a few rips.

The force of nature takes no prisoners! Hope you get it all sorted swiftly and are back doing some more of your fabulous write ups :thumb::thumb:

Thanks - yep we may try and secure it with concrete sometime but I would like to be able to move it. Looking like a wooden garage might be the next step.

Very lucky escape....get a garage like I am building at the moment...it deffo wont move then

If that had been properly secured to the ground you would have probably woken to lots of ripped fabric and bent frame :(

Every cloud..... [emoji106]

At least you didn't have any damage. With the portable garage you could have had cars or Windows (of family) damaged very easily.

Now, where's the next project update. Lol.
