Army Surplus

We did this years ago to change a stick tranny in an old '49 Buick, and then actually used it as a garage for quite awhile... we bought an Army surplus 10 or 12 man tent (it was huge, held two cars plus)... it came with all of the supports etc, was cheap, and we heated it with a wood burning stove, but a bullet heater would make more sense today.... a lot of the things that have been suggested so far are pretty expense.... wood is higher than aluminum in some capacities.
