Parkliner to get new carport this week!

Finally! We get our new 12 X 21 carport installed Thursday the 15th. Already got a level crusher run pad down for it. Just in time! Pics soon!

Gotta winterize the egg pretty soon, no more camping this season, too many things going on. Remodeling out master bath this weekend (for instance).

Hope all is well with you folks!

Frank

This is on my list for next year. I was going to do it this year but ran out of steam. I'm thinking about one of those with a metal roof and open sides but know nothing about them. Pictures will be appreciated. Raz

Because our Parkliner is over 8' tall, we got 9' side posts, but it will look something like this I think.



"I think" because I ordered this baby 2-1/2 months ago, understanding it might take up to 3 months to get. I just wanted it before winter hit. We got it from the same folks we bought our 12 X 20 tall barn shed from earlier this year. Local folks, good to deal with (Back Yard Sheds & Gazebos). Then I think the carport is from these folks: Carolina Carports - Homepage

We're putting it a foot or two from the west side of our shed. I've got the shed wired for power, but not hooked up yet (need to rent a trencher before winter). I put a 20 amp circuit in and a 20 amp GFCI outlet on that side of the shed to make it easy to plug the egg in. Pics soon!

This long weekend is consumed with tearing out the master bath (done yesterday) and completely rebuilding it. Whirlpool tub goes in today! Gotta go run some 12/2 wire for it right now.

Yup, that's exactly what I had in mind. How is it anchored?

Seems to me they use screw in anchors. This baby is 12 gauge too (not 14) to meet local building codes. Whatever it is I bought, it does meet local codes for wind and snow load. I had to get a building permit for it, same as for my shed. Wind and snow, wind and snow Raz. Hard to get away from it in the NE!

Soon as it's in, I'll let you know how they anchored it.

Here is one I had put in a few years ago. I made sure to order the right length legs for the height of the 19 ft Scamp I had at the time.

Getting the right length legs is crucial! We hope to take this one with us years down the road when we retire and use it for whatever egg we end up buying. I'm in hopes an Escape 5.0 would fit under it? Even more, I'm hoping we get one!

I have a 16' Scamp now. Plenty of room.

Anyone else have problems with birds (barn swallows) building nests in these? They make a mess of whatever is under the nest.

A gentleman who showed me his Scamp 16 - and who MAY sell me said Scamp later this year - said that became a problem. He ended up putting partial sides on his to reduce the problem, but he still must regularly clean the bird mess off. Is this something everyone just has to deal with?

When I get my egg, I want to have something like this to keep it in, but not sure my local government will allow them - I hate zoning that goes too far.

I've had mine three or four years now and this year was the first time I had a bird nest. I'll figure out something to prevent that by next spring.

Birds like to nest in my pole barn. I've seen a lot of those metal car ports in the southern and western states, not so many in the northeast. Snow load capacity concerns me, especially if I was away for the winter. Haven't seen a collapsed one though.

I've seen some companies offer a vertical option to allow for better snow shedding. The panels are placed so that the ribs run vertically (duh). Allows the snow to slide off easier, so less build-up. They do charge extra for this design, however.

An old CD disk suspended by fishing line will keep them at bay if you hang it where they are trying to build the nest. If it can spin freely in the breeze and both sides are shiny it does the trick.
