Can I build additional storage between 2buildings covered with vinyl?


I have about 8 feet of concrete between my garage and a storage building, both covered in vinyl siding. Can I close in that space for a garden storage. Will it become home to unwanted animals.

    Yes you can enclose that area. You have to be very careful attaching anything to vinyl siding though, make sure you attach to the framing under the siding. As far as critters are concerned, if you build the area so that there are no holes or cracks, critters won't get in.

    Be careful: if you attach 2 buildings your insurance home owners and/or fire MAY not cover you if you have a fire or other loss! attaching makes 2 bdlgs ONE for insurance companies purposes! check with your agent!
