Turn the carport into a garage

In our new home we have (well, had…) a carport with three walls, but without doors. We decided to change it, and this is how it turned out.

We bought planks for paneling, some 2x10cm (1×4″) lumber and 10x10cm (4×4″) beams. Hinges and other hardware was necessary too.

After installing the post bases I started to build the doors. As usually it has some additional strengthening support on the back side, but I decided to go with this simple design for the front. It was impossible to install the planks precisely, so the door was cut to length afterwards with a straight edge and a router.

I finished the project with white furnish exterior wood stain.
