  • Carport conversion to actual garage

    Hello! I have an older home and I am planning on doing some improvements on it. I currently have a one car carport that is attached to the main house. The carport is held up by 4 posts that is approximately 2ft apart on one side, the back and front opening is held up by 1 post (other side is attached to the house). There are rafters on the ceiling of the carport that is also connected to the main house. The wall where the carport is attached to is the exterior wall of the living room. I am thinking of converting the carport into an actual garage with an automatic garage door. What things do I have to consider if I go about this project? Is this job too big for a do-it-yourselfer? Do I need a permit to do this? Thank you very much!
