Carports provide valuable shelter for our cars, boats and bikes as well as undercover entertaining areas. They can be purchased as DIY kits and are very popular at Cheap Sheds, however they often don’t get as much attention as our other structures.
In fact building a carport can often be more of a challenge than a small shed. So we wanted to share with you one of our customers, John Murphys, project and images of his carport project.
John Paul Murphys Carport Project
“This was the very first time I’ve ever built something like this! The instructions were easy and simple to read and understand.
I put it on Footings not a slab, and the only thing I found a bit bizarre was the dimensions for the footings for the size of the dyna-bolts supplied. I dug the hole the depth recommended but made the width and length a bit smaller
Once the footings were measured up, string lined and pegged, I got a hand from my neighbours to help dig the holes (all by hand using a shovel- all two feet of it (Took about 4 days total!).
Once the frame was done and the legs on, it was easy as to do the the rest” -John Murphy
