Are you sick of leaving your car in an unprotected driveway or on the side of the road? A carport can be a great, economical solution for providing shade and protection for your car, and it can also be used as an entertaining area in a pinch (just remove the car, add some tables, and a light and away you go). If you are thinking about building a carport, the best place to start is by asking a draftsperson for some advice and to draw up some plans. Here’s some more info.
A draftsperson is a professional that generally uses computer aided design (CAD) software in order create detailed plans for a building project that can be submitted to the local council for development approvals and permits to be granted, and these plans also form the basis from which builders and other professionals work. When drawing up the plans for your carport, the drafter will take into consideration your existing building, your budget, and other things such as the size of the carport you require. Drafters are capable of designing many different types of carports such as flat roofed, fully enclosed, semi detached, single, double, and so on, so it is a matter of communicating with the draftsman in order to end up with a plan that suits your needs perfectly. The draftsman will also design the carport with materials that are complementary to your home so it looks like the carport has been there all along and isn’t just “tacked on”.
There are some things that you need to consider when you are hiring a draftsman to create plans for your carport. You need to be able to communicate well with your drafter so that they understand exactly what you want from the carport, and what budget they have to work with. Your draftsperson should also be flexible, so that if changes are needed in their designs for any reason, they are happy to make them. Ask what their approximate charge is, and also ask to see references and examples of their past work as this is the best way to judge the calibre of their work.
