Default Lease shade awning

Well new lease in south Texas gets hot, really hot! So a place to get out of the sun was a must. I recruited the help of my younger brothers and one of my best buds to get the project done. It is a 20x24 structure with a 16 ft wall on the north side. Inside the wall Iíll mount shelving and put in a fridge, stainless table, tv, flat top grill, and lights.

Put you a wood burning stove in there for when it gets real chilly.

Looks stout and definitely not going anywhere!

We did something similar back in the day when I was hunting with my dad. He built a large 20X24 room, essentially a cabin, and built tunnels into it from out trailers. We had cabinets, fridge, and pot belly stove in there and man it was nice to not have to sit out in the cold!

WE have done this on countless leases, and finally learned to not put one up as it will stay with the lease.

I do recommend a barrel stove to heat it.

Looks great.

I just built a 12x22 in front of our cabin.
Wish i would have gone with the 4x4 posts instead of pipe for stability purposes.

Yours looks really solid!!

I have 1 weekend of work into it (that I really enjoyed) and material I got a steal on. If I left(which I donít plan on) it wouldnít hurt my feelings to leave it. And if no one will pay me for it when I do leave, Iíll get .03/lb at the scrap yard if Iím hurting lol.

Got a good bit of firewood split for the winter! Think we have about three cords worth! Also picked up a fridge, picnic table and a griddle! Going to shape up to be a nice comfy place!

We mounted led string lighting, a wall mount fan, propane oven/range, and TV under ours. Sure is nice when the weather sucks.


That sumbuck is stout! You'll love it!

You need more firewood and some gravel under the shade.

Our lease is all sand, water filters through real easy. 2 inches of rain over the weekend and not muddy at all under that cover. First weekend I spent there it rained 5 inches over night, I drive out in 2wd no problem. Itís like being at the beach
