Winter storage

My Scamp is now parked in its winter nest. Got the shelter at Menard's. $400. On sale. A very good fit. I was able to back right in. I added extra stakes-See pic. The door had only 2 zippers. Called the shelter company. They sent a new one with 3 like the pic on the box. No charge. Highly recommend it.

Will this hold up to 30 mph wind gusts and heavy snow load you have in North Dakota?

So far it has held up in wind. I just added additional stakes to solidify the base. I have cinder blocks around the sides. Also I slid some steel rods into the end piece hems. Will do more soon to prepare for winter. I got the round top type thinking it will shed the snow better. I intend to keep an eye on it when it snows and remove excess. The steel frame seems pretty strong.

I've read about them in the farm and ranch forums. Folks say they do hold up and I have read about some mods you can do if needed. Google should bring up shelter logic mods. Nice photos, thanks for sharing.

I've seen that type of building before when i lived in the Northeast..... they hold up pretty good in the snow and wind. My friend held his down with those curly screw down type stakes
