Talking I'm building a cheap portable garage/storage for winter.

Ok so I'm wanting something to store my bike from the weather and also be able to work on it if I need to be, so I decided to build a 10 L x 5W x8H garage/shed out of pvc and I know what your thinking...........dumbass lol........but stay with me, I don't have a garage or crazy amount of $ to by one, so I figured out a cheap efficient way to store your bike for about $60, I'll post again in a little bit with pics when I start this is the idea except 2 more going up the middle to the roof, please post opinions good or bad.

Sure. You can build a shelter for the bike keep the rain or snow off, depending where you live. Keep in mind it won't be heated so you will still need to properly winterize the bike.

Or you could just buy something like this:
Motorcycle Boat Kayak Jet Ski ATV Tent Canopy Cover Shelter Shed Garage w Bench | eBay

As long as you don't expect much wind :P

You will need to vent it. Trapped moisture is not your friend. Keep in mind that the ground is damp and moisture rises.

I already have a concrete platform where there use to be a 2 door garage, and I plan on putting carpet down, and on the sides I'm gonna do a mesh screen window like the ones in a tent, as far as the one off of ebay, that's the one I really want but I got layed off so I figured I'd make something just to hold over till I can buy that or make one, that one is exactly how I planned on making one but couldn't figure out material and how they built it, but if I could get the plans and material list, that would be my first choice. I'm trying to figure out about how or if I could put shelves in mine........any ideas?

Get a cheap used bookcase off of CL to use for shelves /storage. Usually find em pretty cheap. Especially since asthetics probably arent a concern...

That was my first thought too. How are you going to anchor it to the ground? Because you'll DEFINITELY need to do that - even if you don't have much wind

And tell me it will be out of sight behind your house or something, right?
