Door Kit Seals End Off Low-Cost Canvas Shelters
"Our new door kit lets people use our low-cost canvas shelters for everything from garages to greenhouses," says James Grantz of High Pointe Coverings, Harmony, Minnesota.
The company's shelters consist of polyethylene canvas stretched over a galvanized steel frame. The door kit lets you install either can-vas or wooden ends. The customer installs his own doors, screens, and windows. A 5-ft. overhang provides a sort of "porch".
"It lets you put up temporary housing with-out spending a lot of money," says Grantz. "By installing a blanket of insulation and putting in a heater these shelters can even be kept warm during winter. Some customers have used them as hunting camps, and a snowmobile club recently set one up for its members."
The tarp fastens to the frame by lacing nylon rope through D-rings attached to the tarp with 2-in. seat belt webbing. A wide selection of color combinations are available, including translucent for a greenhouse effect. Soil skirts are standard and provide a weathertight seal between the ground and the base of the building.
Buildings are available in 10, 12, and 14-ft. widths. Lengths increase in 5-ft. increments. A 10-ft. sq. building sells for $440 and a 12 by 20-ft. building sells for $804 plus S&H.
