    Hi everyone! We have an attached carport (two walls are attached to the house, and another wall includes a short brick wall with an opening to walk through, and then of course there is the opening to drive into. My husband and I are wanting to close in the carport to convert into a homeschool...
  4. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    What I am planning to do (just unsure on the feasibility) is a thick compacted rock base (~5-6 inches), layer of sand (~1-2 inches), layer of brick pavers (7.5 x 3.5 bricks set like they were pavers), brush in mason sand, and then a 3 in thick layer of concrete. The overall size will be 12 ft x...

    Hi all, I have a small space in the front of my house (near my door step) which I am planning to build a carport on. See, I recently got a car and that small space use to be a where other stuffs are placed and it used to be a smoking spot during night. But when I think of constructing a carport...

    I would like to add 2 walls to the sides of my carport. Not necessarily a full garage conversion. I've seen similar questions on forums around the web, but I don't know where to start with mine because the carport is not on a concrete slab - the four existing posts are attached to their own...

    I have a carport space that I want to enclose. It is 24x16, with 2x8 rafters on 16" centers, 5/8 sheathing, 2" foam and rubber roof. It is supported along the house on one of the long sides. On the far side of the carport there are 4, 4x4 posts on a concrete driveway. The posts are about 7'...

    Hi, I live in north eastern BC and am planning on building a carport onto the side of my shed/workshop. My plan is to attach a 16' ledger to the side of the existing structure. For rafters I'd use 2x6 16"OC spanning approximately 13' (can i get 14' 2x6?) where they'd sit on a double 2x8 beam...

    I am planning to build a single slope carport. I will use three 12ft 4x4s on one side, and three 10ft 4x4s on the other. For support beams, I will run two 10ft 2x6s on each side for a total length of 20ft and then use 12ft 2x4s every two feet for roofing rafters. I'm just not sure how to...

    I have a wood shed that I'd like to convert to a simple carport. The roof is still in excellent condition and it sits on a concrete slab. By my estimation, if I remove the walls (wood slates), I could fit my car in there. My concern is that there may be some wood rot along the baseline. How...

    I'm considering adding a deck that would double as a carport. It would be for 2 cars with a door from the upper level of my house out to the deck. Obviously a traditional wooden deck has the problem of rain dropping between the slats onto the cars below. My first thought is to pour a cement...

    I'm planning on building a one-car carport (12'x20') over an existing concrete parking pad. I would like to know if the 4"x4" support post I'm planning on using would provide enough structural strength if the post are anchored directly to the existing concrete. I plan on anchoring the post using...
