How to Build a Carport Step By Step: 

initial steps in building a metal carport
Step One: The first step is to layout the base rails as illustrated in the photo to the left. Then the base rails are positioned the proper distance from each other and anchored to the ground where base rails are parallel and square to each other. This will provide a solid base for the other parts that make up your carport.

Step Two: The bows or trusses and legs of the carport are laid out on the ground. The legs of the carport are slid into the sleeves on the trusses and securely fastened together.

Step Three: The installation team then lifts up the bows or trusses with the legs attached and slips the legs over the raised metal sleeves on the base rails as illustrated in the photo to the left. If you look closely you can see the metal sleeves sticking up approximately 6” on the base rails.

Step Four: The framing is then leveled and legs are plumbed. The frame is now square, plumb, level and ready for attaching the sheet metal. The proper setting of the frame is the key to a great looking carport.

Step Five: Metal panels available in many different colors are positioned on the roof. Make sure you have the same amount of overhang on each end prior to fastening to the rafters with self-tapping screws. The screws have neoprene washers to prevent water intrusion. The final step is the installation of the trim. For a regular style carport, the trim is a fascia type applied to the ends only. For a box eve style, there is boxed eve trim for the entire perimeter of the roof.

Step Six: You see the fruitage of hard work – a finished carport! Front view illustrated in photo here.

10′x20′ buckskin and cream©Portable: When a portable storage building is described as such, it should be completely portable. The building should have complete structural integrity. It should be capable of movement with skids and joists on the floor system underneath the building, and effectively, it should have a completely pressure-treated floor system.

The better the floor system in the portable storage building, the better the building. How better to move a portable storage building than to gauge it by its floor support system. So a good floor system is essential. Complete structural integrity encapsulates the fact that it should be throughout the life of the portable storage building.

Strength: When you buy a portable building, of course it should be strong. But what about 5, 10 or 20 years down the road? Will your storage building be PORTABLE at that point? Would a crew or a few guys be able to pull your storage shed out on its skids, load it up and move it without it buckling because of structural ineptitude, years of water damage or a sagging floor?

Important questions when you are considering the purchase of a building that you may just end up replacing, are they not? This is especially true when you are may be storing expensive, personal items in your portable storage building or unit. Remember, the strength of a pressure-treated floor system and a well-made, warrantied building can mean protection for your items – what you want – besides the added strength which is what you need as well.

Integrity: Let’s face it, a portable storage building is not a buy-it-and-toss-it type of purchase. Why not buy a portable storage building that is built to last? My husband always says, “Buy the best, leave the rest.” There are just some things that are worth checking into first and portable buildings is one of them. Like I always write – doing your homework first pays off; there is just integrity in that.
