Default wings



Here is what I did for my wings, just prior to roof and sides going on. It is out of luaun with some cedar strips inside to keep the bugs away.

Search for 'portable office' companies in your area. I found one in your general area that sells them as small as 8x12. Most have 'stock' items, but will customize to the customer's request. Tell them you just want a floor, roof, and exterior walls with one walk-in door (no interior finish). It'll come on skids that you could leave directly on the ground, or put on blocks to protect it from water, etc.

You could buy an enclosed trailer. Use it for parts and then use it for fun. Or sell it.

Check the local EAA chapter and see if someone w/ a hangar would allow you to store them there?

I just found a local company in our little town that sells, rents and leases all sizes of shipping containers. Standard sizes appear to be 20', 40' and 48'. Prices and rental/lease rates are not provided on the web site. And if this is available in our little town surely Livermore California would have something similar or better.

But renting a shipping container is another option.

Hopefully not too much of a thread necro here, but approximately how much does a finished wing, sans fiberglass, weigh? I too will likely have to hang mine from the ceiling in the garage.

The crates for the wing kit weigh in at ~400 lbs., so maybe 150 each?

I would say about 100 lbs but it's not equal. Heavier inboard.
