Garage
Re: Suggestions: stand alone inexpensive carport for 4x4 SMB

I'll probably go metal. I'm in the middle of adding a garage and a carport. Slightly more expensive though as far as carports go.

Re: Suggestions: stand alone inexpensive carport for 4x4 SMB

I wanted a inexpensive temporary shelter and do a lot of wood working so I made my own. About $300.00 in materials, 4x4 pressure treated sill plates, joist hangers to mount trusses, 2x3 trusses, 2x4 purlins. Put I together in three evenings after work, it came apart in an hour and should go back up in an evening.

The truth about DIY if we had the pay for our own labor nothing would be affordable.

Maybe you could post the plans. That is a very nice piece of work.

This is a JPG the sketch up file .SKP files are not allowed? The key to the build was using construction adhesive with the screws on the brackets and assembling the frames on top of each other with a 2x4 in the grove to maintain alignment. They sell a simple metal bracket for making this style of shed but I had the ability to make brackets so I did.
