One pilots ultralight hangar solution.

An Ultralight Hangar
This hangar was designed by a friend of mine Dave Martin. Dave is no longer with us, he passed away several years ago, after his second battle with cancer. Dave was one of those guys that you gave a problem to and he came up with half a dozen solutions. 

The solution for him for an ultralight hangar, for his Beaver was to build one out of metal tubing. The unique part of the structure is that it is modular in construction. That is, it is a series of smaller steel units, bolted together. The hangar is "T" shaped - I believe it was 34 feet long and 10 feet to the bottom of the "T" with an additional 10 feet in the "I" of the "T" and 10 feet high.

Here is a shot of the complete hangar. Note the two supports used for snow load. These have cables attached to them that allow them to swing sideways and up into the ceiling when the plane is being taken out.

dmhangar2.jpg (263978 bytes) Dave made the side the whole hangar from square tubing in sections that could be bolted, together. Here is a shot of the side of the hangar. This is one of the "modules."
dmhangar3.jpg (155550 bytes) For the roof Dave used wood joists connected to the front and back of the hangar "T", covered with metal roofing.
