Before building a shed or carport on your property, it’s important to check with your local council authority to see if you need approval.

The construction of a double carport can vary in terms of time frame, but typically it takes two tradespeople around 2 to 3 days to finish a standard one.

How close can I build a carport to my property boundary?

Usually, the limit is around 900 millimetres, but it’s best to confirm with your council to get accurate information. They can provide you with this information over the phone.

Can I enclose the walls on a carport?
It is possible to add walls to your carport, but it’s important to keep in mind that carports are designed to be open structures that allow wind to flow through. By adding walls, you create a surface that wind can push against, which can be problematic. To address this issue, it’s recommended to add additional bracing to counteract the wind’s effects. So, while adding walls is an option, it’s important to carefully consider all factors before doing so.
