How Would You Like To Get Started
The most obvious answer to this is limited space. Many houses have at least a 3 metre space between the boundary fence and the wall of the home. So building a carport in this space is a great option.
With smaller land sizes these days, this may be the only option available to add a carport to your home.
A carport is a structure with a roof that is designed to protect all types of vehicles from the weather elements. It will protect your vehicle from extreme heat, sun damage, tropical storms and hail which makes it a good investment. A carport not only protects the vehicle but it may also add value to your home.
A carport can be attached to a wall or free-standing and generally has one or two walls and at least two open sides. The height of the carport can also be adjusted to accommodate larger vehicles like motor homes, caravans and boats. In this blog we are looking at building a carport attached down the side of your home.
Carports not only protect cars (as the name might imply) – you can also protect other important assets such as: motor homes, caravans, camper trailers, boats, trailers, horse floats, 4WDs, motorcycles, bicycles, buses, tractors and farm equipment, and heavy machinery.
The side carport itself can also be used for other purposes as well (when vehicles are elsewhere) – outdoor entertaining, barbecues, children’s parties, storage, gardening, drying washing on wet days etc.
If you have recently purchased a boat, camper trailer or caravan but have no place to store it undercover? The addition of a carport at the side of the home may be the solution you are looking for, using the existing fence on one side and the wall of the house on the other.
The size of the carport is only limited by the length of the home, so easily 1-3 car lengths. The area could be used for outside undercover entertaining also.
This layout still allows vehicles to drive through to the back yard, but offers a sheltered area to protect vehicles when parked underneath.
