THE SOLID REAR PANEL CAN BE REMOVED, HOWEVER RIGIDITY OF THE UNIT WILL BE COMPROMISED. YOU WOULD BE BETTER TO ORDER AN ADDITIONAL ZIP UP PANEL FROM SHELTER LOGIC.

We had six feet of snow last year, with a max of 38 inches at one time. The GIB had no trouble with it. The structure of the frame gives it almost a gambrel roof (think barn), though slightly rounded. As a result, only the central six feet of the roof retains any snow at all -- snow just slides off the steeper outer slope. The color of the material that ISN'T covered with snow is dark, so the GIB heats up on the first sunny day, and all the remaining snow slides right off. I was amazed that on a windless sunny day when the temp outside was five below, the temp inside the GIB was about 50.

This garage in a box original shelters series is very well built and the new alpine roof design sheds snow real well. The manufacturer does not have an actual snow load rating on the garage kit, but I know several friends who live in snow New England states and they say that this shelter is real good at snow load. I have looked at other designs myself in the garage in a box series by the manufacturer shelterlogic originalshelters.com and this particular roof design seems to be the best for snow areas. I would recommend making sure the ratchets are tight at all times to avoid any sagging on the portable garage shelter roof system. This will allow ultimate snow shedding.

These garage in a box truck/suv original shelters have been treated in and out with UV inhibitors and will do real well in South Texas. The fabric is a triple rip stop material that is built to last and if it needs to be replaced down the road you can always purchase a replacement cover for the frame.

Garage in a box original shelters by shelterlogic are ideal for boat storage, truck shelters, garden tool and equipment storage, farm buildings, AutoShelters and much more. I would recommend checking out the spec sheet at the garage in a box manufacturer shelterlogic originalshelters.com which will give you more detailed info on these all purpose portable garage kit packages.

The canopy attaches to the ground using six 15in. auger anchors and eight Ratchet Tite ratchets and 8 steel foot plates. It is still possible that in some conditions snow could collect at the ground level inside the canopy.

answer 2
The canopy is attached to the lower structure by running a support bar through a loop in the canopy and then putting tension downwards on the canopy while you tighten down the bolts on the support bars. The lower flap on the canopy can then be tucked under the support post to keep out most of the snow. The two ends of the garage will let some snow in but over my winters I found very little inside. A board (2 x 8) across the back side could stop most of the snow from coming in.

Question

PAINT SHED?

Wondering is spraying automotive paints will destroy the cover? Some of these paints will kill you if you breath them so I'm thinking they may melt this into a puddle but maybe not, plastics are used for respirators and paint suits

The Garage-in-a-Box offers a one year limited warranty, but you can expect the cover to last much longer. If it is not subject to a heavy wet snow or heavy winds, it may last 5 years or so. You can get a replacement cover from ShelterLogic directly.

My "garage" is only 8 months old, but I know of another ShelterLogic structure that still looks good after 3 years, and our eastern WA weather gets to 105 degrees in the summer, -25 in the heart of winter. I'd guess you can expect at least 5 years before you note much deterioration. Maybe more. I doubt that Northern Tool sells replacement covers (haven't seen them listed)...but I think you can get them direct from ShelterLogic. They are really friendly, give them a call - 800-932-9344

Because ShelterLogic products are not engineered buildings they CAN NOT be snow load rated. Proper anchoring of your structure minimizes the impact from snow. Keeping snow roff the roof area is strongly recommended.

Might be...but if so, that info isn't listed in Northern Tool's specs, nor could I find it on the ShelterLogic website. I can tell you from experience this winter, that it has no trouble with three feet of (admittedly dry) snow, and the snow only accumulated on the center of the roof. The hipped-roof causes most snow to slide right off the steeper part of the roof.
