A carport, or lean-to shed, attached to an existing building such as a garage, barn, shed or the side of your house can provide economical shelter for vehicles, garden tractors, boats or other equipment. An attached carport is also fairly easy to construct against the side of another building, if you have enough height under the existing building eave.
This single carport is 6000mm long by 3000mm wide. It is the most basic of carports. Because each site is different, and individual preferences vary, we have given options for both post installation and bracing. Check with your Local Authority to see if any permit or consent is required. A building consent for a carport is required in New Zealand.
