Carport with Storage Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about carport with storage plans. I have designed this carport so that you can park one car easily into place. Moreover, I have attached a 6×12 storage unit to the carport, so you can store tires and other items and to protect them from the elements Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building a single car carport with storage

fitting-the-posts

Fitting-the-posts

The first step of the project is to lay out the posts for the carport with storage. Use batten boards and string to determine the location for the posts. Make sure the diagonals are equal and apply the 3-4-5 rule to the four corners to check if they are right-angled.

Setting the posts in concrete

Setting the posts in concrete

Dig 3′ deep holes into the ground and then pour a 2″ layer of gravel, so you level the bottom. Compact the gravel thoroughly, before fitting the 6×6 posts into place. Next, you need to plumb them with a spirit level and use temporarily braces, so you lock it into place. Fill the holes with concrete and let it set up for a few days. In addition, make sure the posts are 95 1/2″ above the ground.

Use 6×6 lumber for the top rails, as well. Mark the cut lines on the rails and then make the notches with a circular saw. Make parallel cuts inside the marked areas 2″ deep and then remove the excess materials with a chisel. Smooth the recess with a sandpaper.

Fit the rails to the top of the posts and secure them into place with 5 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes. Leave no gaps between the components and make sure the corners are square.

Build the frames for the sides of the shed unit. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber and then lock them together tightly. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.
