A fleet of canoes has always been our dream, and that dream is finally coming true; which leads us to the dilemma of appropriate storage. The rafters of our garage are filled and we have 2 more wooden canoes being finished soon. We would like to build a canoe storage shed that looks good and protects our canoes from the elements. We live in Wisconsin, close to the shores of Lake Michigan, and need to protect the canoes from rain, snow, ice, and wind. We've built a small cordwood masonry/timber frame storage shed and want to create another unique, rustic building in our backyard. We're looking for anyone else who's built a canoe storage shed/barn and would appreciate seeing pictures of your creations, to get ideas and inspiration from. We've been thinking of building a timber framed 6' x 20', 3-sided shed, with a canvas cover that could be rolled down for protection; does anyone knows if that is doable or would we risk the 20' span sagging?
