          Harbor freight has 20% coupons and sometimes let you use with their sale items.

            Should be great for inside garage. I have read for outdoors they may need additional support to withstand adverse weather conditions.

                Fabio, Why do you need it if you have a garage? Perhaps some shelves, plastic bins and lights might do.

                      What are the clear panels made of? Do the GH frame and panels seem like they would be durable for outside?

                      Is like a 3 layer polly plastic. Sรฌ I will put tis outside in spring. There is rain gutter on them and the window retain clips hold window in very tightly. There is 2 roof window that can be vented or locked open complete and the door slide with no effort and has rubber seals on each side door to insure stays closed tight and so for no fly out. I think is very sturdy and great purchase for my needs and what I will use it for in next summer.

                      if this is a Harbor Freight GH then i would think twice about putting it outside without additional support. Many folks on the other forum have had issues. But it also appears that many people have been able to modify them to make them somewhat more durable.

                              Sรฌ. I read reviews on people suggestions for tis. I am sure I will modify once go outside. I think I still need to insulate more because the garage floor cold and I keep small space heat (electric fan) inside all close up and still was no too warm.

                                you may want to put your GH on a wood platform in your garage.

                                Maybe a few 2x4's under a sheet of plywood?

                                That might help.

                                Tis is true. I may try also maybe wrap in plastic.

                              For outside you really need cross braces to keep it from folding and more support for the twinwall (clear panels) to keep them from popping out.

                                Thanks for those pictures. I bought one last week for $225 but haven't put it together yet. I already knew I would have to add additional support but for the price, it's worth a shot.

                                  Also. No use hand tool. Battery drill with nut driver. All nuts to face inside. The bolt head will grab outside automatically. Also we no leave all bolts loose until end. We tighten as we go and left bottom free floating off wood foundation until finish. Because if panels are tight you can lift GH to release pressure in beams and they will fit perfectly.
