The Rocio (sic) Romero homes are incredible, at least from the design - I looked into getting one, but they are NOT cheap - I don't know anything quite the same, unless you try to build one yourself.

you might want to consider clearing an area and building a small patio - some z-bricks work nicely for such a task - a friend and I did a little 10' x 10' a few years ago, took us a day.

I purchased a stand-alone storage unit from "Hold Everything" - turned out to be weak, unstable, not at all worth what I paid for it - has anyone else had problems with their products?
