For this project we were asked to design a new two car covered carport to the north of the existing living room, a privacy screen from the main road for the back yard, and to enhance the exterior of the house. The carport is made of two steel W12x26 beams supported by 4 steel pipe columns. Two of the columns penetrate the existing eave of the house, literally tying the house and the carport together. Also, this allows for the over hang of the carport, which is higher than the existing eve to over lap each other. The privacy screen is made up of cedar posts and 1 x 6 cedar slats. The gate with in the screen is made up of 1 x 6 cedar slats held together by a square tube steel frame.
