Oak Frame Car Ports

Carports and garages both provide an area that help protect and shelter your vehicles as well as yourself from the elements. The common traits of a car port are to either have all faces open or some of faces open without utilising, cladding, brickwork, or studwork. Whilst this doesn’t give the same security and storage abilities of a garage it can lower your costings on labour, materials as well as ground works. Where the car port has open sides it gives the ability to use pad foundations instead of strip foundations, these combinations allow car ports to be a savvy lower cost project. Car ports are ideal to provide cover and protection when having to park under or near  trees they are also a great option if you’re looking at putting a building up but have restricted access on your plot or driveway.


Having the open  front, rear & sides on a car port not only make parking a lot easier where you have areas with restricted access but also gives the ability to park any size cars underneath as well as if you are elderly or disabled there is more space making it easier to get in and out of the car. The open sides of a car port also make much more of the beautiful oak frame visible and help to really show off the beauty of the traditional oak beams and braces. However if you are thinking of creating more privacy in your car port we can create a suspended wall that allows the building still not to require strip foundations and keep your project to a lower cost. At the Oak Designs Company we can create and work with you to design your custom car port that works the best for your site or home. Please contact us now to find out more and discuss further.
