Seems like a good way to erect a semi permanent shade structure, shed, or covered garage area

I see them everywhere used as fencing, sheds, or garage overhangs

I love this stuff and grab as much as I can off of people who don't need it.
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.

You can also buy it in most home centres along with the joints, they have big stacks outside.

It's pretty versatile and so long as you pound the supports in fairly deep, a half metre or more it makes for pretty stable structures. We've built some lean to's around our packing shed for storing firewood and one for our cold room and so far they have stood up to typhoons and earthquakes.

I was thinking to use some as support trellis for some heavy vines.

How does it hold up to moisture? I assume well, but wondering what that life span is once buried in damp soil?

Our oldest wood store is about 8 years old and not showing any sign of rust or anything yet. Make sure you get the little cones for the end you're going to hammer into the ground so the inside of the pole doesn't fill up with soil.

We used some to build a small structure to store our rice farming equipment. For the roof, we used plywood and then ordered a custom tarp to drape over the top. That bloody tarp cost 50,000 yen! What did you guys use for the roof?

Corrugated polycarbon sheets are the cheapest Monotaro

I used, totan corrugated sheets with a coat of paint for one and polycarbonate sheets for another.

Komeri is similar in price to Cainz. The roof on my workshop is a mix of each and in it's 12th or 13th year with no sign of wear so they last a while.

Galvalum (ガルバリウム)isn’t so cheap but definitely cheaper than plywood and an overpriced tarp. It’s estimated to be good for 30 years maintenance free. Don’t need plywood under it unless you want to create an airspace to reduce heat under the roof- leave the ends open so the heat can get out.

The polycarbonate would be good for the walls.

I need to put up a shelter for equipment I currently have in my vinyl house. It’s cooking all the fuel lines and gaskets and now I have to replace those :roll:
