Finished the 14' long Costco carport mod and am posting pictures so you can see how it was constructed without the top cover and Trillium
The space where the carport was going was close to the house so measures had to be taken to prevent it from hitting the side of the house and gutters.
There was also a gas meter on one side, and to prevent the 6"X6" wood base from sliding into the gas line, the base was fastened on one end to the square metal post protecting the gas meter and also a L bracket was fashioned to sit in the groove of the concrete driveway.
Braided wire (plastic covered 1/16") in X patterns was used to stabilize the roof canopy and vertical side posts. The vertical posts and roof angles were covered with insulation that was secured with plastic ties.
The ht of the vertical posts is 7' 1" with the 6" added wooden base and 7'4" 6" inside of the vertical posts. The width of the canopy is 9'5" which leaves 16" of clearance on each side of the Trillium
. The ht of the Trillium
1300 is 7'6",width 6'8", length 13' .
