I have started building a carport for the guest parking area at Lifewater Ranch. We harvested and milled the wood on property and now it’s dry enough to use. This is the first of several buildings I intend to create for the ranch. A carport seemed a nice simple project to learn on.
Watcher, my renter’s dog, is keeping me company as I work.
I had a lot of help with the metal from JD, a guy that has been living here in his RV for awhile. We had the hardest time with the front eve which we had to reinstall 4 times and by then we had some kinks in it we could not fix. I found that my fancy blue supports on the outside really made life difficult for both eves – note to self- don’t do that next time!
It was a good learning experience. The supports really worked well. JD could climb all over that thing and it didn’t hardly wiggle. All I really need to do now is get some gravel put underneath and it will be a very welcoming spot future guest cars.
Thanks for watching!
