Budget X Chassis Build

Since I only have a 1 car garage, I needed a place to work first. I looked into material cost to design a carport and found a kit that was a little cheaper but came with plans so it would be quick and easy to permit and get assembled.

I got it from metaldeck.com and the first one was damaged in shipping so they sent a second one right out and I had it a few days later. Great Customer service!

It took a couple weekends to build and get inspections for it and all. In progress pic. Roof panels are 21' long and it is 15' wide. About 10' to roof or 9' to bottom of beams. Could have gone higher as I bought the RV kit but it would have looked funny with the house.

Right on brotha! Welcome to the X club!

Just remember, a year from now, when the wife is pissed, you feel like you haven't seen your daughter in months, the checking account is perpetually low, is EXACTLY the time to buckle up for the final push to completion. It's a long road, but worth it in the end!

Good luck!
