Carport to Car Garage


I have a car port and now I plan to convert that to Garage. On the front, I will simply going for Garge doors.

But on the back I am looking for various options, I can explore on it..

Here are the photos of the rear side..

I would like to use the flat space available, if I can..

Please any thoughts ?

Your should be an easy frame -in... gets interesting with the water considerations at the raised mini-wall and walkway. Most all things can be sovled..it's just time, effort, and money.

if you can, clear out some of the obsticals in the photos. Provide close ups of rear header beam tie-in to the house . Are the arches structural or just for mission style looks? A good additon strives to look as if it was part of the original construction. Do you want to tie-in to the stucco backwall and stucco to blend or match? A nice contrast is better then a poor match.

It might be intersting to leave the arches...add some trimout work at tie-ins and new corner...add arches on the side... fill in arches with stucco to match..

a lot depends on what you plan to DIY (tools, abilities, and guts) and/or hire out...budget..etc.

Thank you for your comments.
I would go in suchway tht the wall will be line with the existing stucco. I think I can put exterior wood on the rear side and paint it to blend with the existing stucco.

Hope these pics provide more information to suggest more ideas.
