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

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.....

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.

What was in the garage when it went up might be a future thread.
