A garage like structure made out of assemble-it-your-self pipes and a vinyl covering sold at Costco whose official purpose is to cover cars, but is more frequently used as a shade structure for events. Frequently used at Burning Man (where the nickname originated), as a bulky, hard to transport, painful to assemble, rust prone alternative to more conventional shade structures. Becomes particularly difficult if one owns more than one such barns as Costco's design changes every year and the near visually identical pieces are completely incompatible.
You'd better guy down that Costco Barn or the next dust storm is going to turn it into a raver-killing kite.
