We have a new (to us) EggCamper
, and need to provide a cover for it.
We have several options.
1) Build a carport-type cover for it;
2) Widen/heighten one side of a freestanding, 2-car brick garage.
3) Buy a fabric-type cover for it.
Obviously, #2 would be the most secure, but I have a feeling it would be very expensive. Construction, labor, new garage door, moving (eliminating?) the pedestrian door, replacing the 2nd garage door in order to match the new one. . . We have an in-house garage for our cars, so we don't have to worry about displacing one.
Option #1 seems (at first glance) to be less expensive than #2 , but may be the harder one to make secure, and nice-looking. We have a level spot to the right of the existent freestanding garage mentioned above, and also a space behind this garage, but it slopes and would have to be made level. I am assuming there would be concrete poured for the floor of it. We have a cotton field behind us which allows strong winds to pick up velocity coming toward us, so I would want it to be sturdy (knowing nothing is tornado-proof). . .
I know some of you have built shelters for your eggs and some have reworked garages. I would appreciate any advice on either type. . .
The last option is the fabric-type cover. My concern is getting one that won't leave marks on the gel coat, and would let the Egg be accessible with the cover on. . .
Thanks for sharing your expertise. . .
