A little break from the typical restorations, front entryways, lanais, and other projects we typically do that you see on here, here’s something we don’t do quite as often…

This is what our “blank canvas” looked like. What it will be by the end of this project is a covered open picnic area for the residents of the nearby residential buildings.

This was the first day and we went out there to take measurements for the structure that we will create beforehand in our facility.

Meanwhile, we filled up the square on the ground where the structure will stand. This prevents what will be the covered area from getting too muddy when it’s raining. The makeshift vertical stalks mark where the aluminum members or foundation that are attached to the roof will be.

And here is the structure when done!

Carport structure

Here’s another view of it from a slightly different angle. We apply the same quality in this structure as we do with our screen enclosures. You can ensure quality work that will last you years.
