A quick internet search for carports will mostly result in metal carport kits that can be ordered online and shipped within days. It is more difficult to find a wooden carport kit online. However it is possible to find plans for a wooden carport online. Many companies can email plans within hours of receiving payment. These plans are all certified by engineers. As long as you follow the plan carefully you will have a structurally sound carport.
Carports are making a big splash at home improvement shows all over the country. There are a lot of contractors discovering a big demand for the product. Wooden carports are the most popular as this type of carport has a classic feel and can add real value to your home.
The additional of a wooden carport to your existing home or other structure can make a lot of sense. Not only does it provide extra protection from the elements if done correctly it can give your house an upgraded look. A properly proportioned carport with the additional of some fancy wooden finials or trim work can really add value to your house.
3. What building permit requirements and possible building restrictions exist in your community. Do you have a copy of the local building codes? Are you even allowed to build a carport on your property? For aesthetic and preservation purposes many heritage communities severely restrict additions to existing structures. There are costs and waiting periods associated with obtaining building permits so make sure you know what these are before you start to build.
2. What is the purpose or the car port? What needs will be served by the carport? Carports generally provide shelter for a car. However other people use carports as a porch cover or a shaded playing area for their children. Is the carport intended to protect the car from the sun or is it to protect from the snow? Are walls necessary to achieve your intended purposes ie. prevent wind and/or snow drifts? Are you expecting to store things safely in the carport. Will you need an area for cupboards? Make a list of goals you want to meet with your carport.
