Growing up his whole life, Greg had been raised around water, boats, and all of the fun and excitement that comes with them. He was quite a good water skier and wakeboarder by the time he left for college, but he headed out from the California coast to Colorado for school. There are lakes in Colorado, but nothing like the access to water he had in California.
He struggled to find places to go boating and with how expensive it was for a college student. When he finally graduated and got a full time job, it was a little easier, but he still did not have his own boat or anywhere to store it if he were able to get one. There were lakes and boathouses that rented out space, but it just seemed too expensive of an endeavor for him. Within a year of graduating though, Greg found the perfect used boat for sale and decided it was time to take the plunge. He did some research around the area looking for storage rentals, before he finally decided he would have to store it himself. The rates were exorbitant, and not worth the trouble. He had a big enough backyard and could put something together to cover it temporarily while he figured out what his other options were.
A neighbor quickly pointed out to him when he saw the boat in the backyard that buying a pre-fabricated steel building from a company like General Steel would be not only the easiest way to go but likely the most affordable, and would cause the least amount of hassle for Greg. He had his own shed in his backyard where he stored tools and other lawn equipment to keep it away from his kids, and said it was one of the best purchases a homeowner could make. Greg quickly called up General Steel for a quote, and gave them the dimensions and what he was thinking in terms of storage space for the boat and even a little extra. The staff had great suggestions about how to use one of their pre-designed buildings, and promised a quick and hassle free delivery.
Not long afterwards, the pre-fabricated steel building arrived from General Steel, and it was exactly right. Greg had plenty of space for the boat without the garage type building taking over the entire yard, and he even had a little extra space for tools and other equipment. He was incredibly relieved to not have to rent the additional space, or to have to store his boat in an inconvenient location. With it in his own backyard, protected from the elements, he could hitch it to the back of his truck and head out to the lake at any time. He still missed his California boating, but luckily Colorado had a lot of options for him. He heads up to Horsetooth every summer for the Fourth of July weekend, and takes that boat happily out of its shed for it. It’s one of the best investments he has made, besides the boat itself.
