    More Storage: Carport Lean-to

    Our property is 1-1/2 acres, so several years ago, I had an 18' x 21' metal carport w/6' legs installed out back: Click image for larger version.

    In July, I started looking for another carport to split & make a lean-to on the north side of this one. Only source I found that would sell one delivered, but not set up was Carolina Carports (Elephant Structures). Ordered it July 10th, was delivered yesterday evening:

    Lowell, I like your building. Have you ever had any issues with snow loads?

    Got the sheet metal on today, still need to put on the trim. This is the west end, which will get double doors, eventually. Click image for larger version.

    East end will probably just get one 4' door: Click image for larger version.

    Now we're getting someplace. Looking good grnspot110.
    I have to wonder why you didn't just put up the whole building? Maybe I missed something from before.

    I took the remaining carport frame parts to the farm today, I'll need a couple treated 4x4's & a 2x6 to finish the frame. The 10 x 18' shade will cover the picnic table & to the right (northeast) in the picture: Click image for larger version.
