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.
Carports may not be a necessity but they definitely have more advantages than disadvantages if installed in line with professional guidelines. Although materials such as wood have been employed in making carports both presently and in the past there seems to be a preference for metal carports to wooden carports. This seems to be due to the fact that wooden carports are often exorbitant.

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.
4. Carport construction material. Do you want the carport to compliment your house (which might cost extra money in lumber and brick)? Many people prefer wooden carports but most kits are only available in steel. Do you need the strength of a steel carport or will aluminum suffice?
