Building Size

Depending on how many bikes you need to store and whether you want room for shelving, closets, etc… you will probably want at least a 10′ x 12′ building. These buildings are available up to 12′ x 24′ which can easily fit two bikes and all your other stuff.

Doors

All of our building kits come standard with one 3′ door.

Floor

Ideally the best floor or foundation surface for your motorcycle shed would be to build it on a concrete slab.  This will also keep the shed at ground level which will make getting your bikes in and out easier.  If you want to build on a slab, we offer a no-floor credit.

No Floor (for Slab, etc…) CREDIT

Flooring Options shed flooring, no floor, built on slab

Quantity:

This is for if you don’t need the floor framing and sheathing, like if you are building your shed on a concrete slab or want to frame your own floor or foundation. Your order will be credited $1.50 per square foot of floor (shed size).

If you are not building your mini garage on a concrete slab, you will want to beef up your floor framing and sheathing as well as your “foundation”.  If you are using a wood framed floor, you will also need a number of extra solid cement blocks or concrete filled sona tubes to support your floor framing.  Some of this may depend on your local building codes and/or the size of the building you are installing. We offer the following floor upgrades:

Upgrade Floor Framing (per sq. ft.)

Flooring Options shed floors, upgrade framing to 12 in. O.C.
