1. Obtaining carport plans. There are a number of different ways to obtain decent and reasonably priced carport plans. You might design and plan your carport yourself. You can buy a package of architectural plans in any home improvement store or over the internet. Alternatively you could buy a carport kit. Another option is to hire a local contractor who will design the carport on your behalf. Whatever you do make sure you have some confirmed plans before starting construction.
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.
Another way of using the internet to help you find carport plans that can be made of wood is to search for images of these types of carports. Once you find an image that you find attractive make a copy. Try to replicate the design yourself. If you lack experience in this type of construction take the image to an experienced contractor. An experienced contractor should be able to build a properly engineered carport from a picture.
There are a number of very critical questions that need to be answered before choosing your carport plans and building your carport. The items and considerations outlined above are only a slight fraction of the possible questions you should mull over. As stated at the outset the best and most satisfying carport construction projects are those that are carefully planned and committed to paper in advance. Happy building and good luck with the construction of your carport. For further information please see carports.
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?
