Corner Covered Patio – Free DIY Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about corner covered patio plans. This project consists of a L-shaped covered patio that is the perfect addition to a garage, workshop of even a house, if you need some shade. The roof has a 10 degree slope. 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.

The first step of the project is to set the posts for the wooden covered patio. Use batter boards and string to layout the posts for the carport. Remember that this is a plan, but you can adjust the size of the structure to suit your needs.

Anchoring the posts of the anchor

Anchoring the posts of the anchor

You can set the posts in concrete or you can pour 3′ deep footings and use posts anchors. Considering this is a light outdoor project, you can set the posts to anchors. That is why, these plans are designed having that assumption in mind (concrete anchors). Make sure you let the concrete to dry out for a few day, before installing the posts into place. Use temporarily braces to secure the posts until you attach the plates.

You should take a look over my 24×24 garage plans, because you can easily add this covered patio to them. In this manner, you will have a garage with a covered patio on two sides. This shelter is ideal if you want to work outside and be protected from the elements.

This project can be built in less than one week. I recommend you to read the local building codes before starting the project, so you make sure you comply with the local requirements  If you build this next to the double garage, you will have a nice shaded area that will be perfect for a car or for woodworking outside.
