The dacha building called "shed" is an exterior construction of the house, made in the form of a roof of one form or another, equipped with a number of vertical supports. The purpose of this building object (relating, incidentally, to a class of small architectural forms) is to protect a limited recreation area from the effects of a number of climatic factors (sunlight, rain and snow, wind and dust). In this article we will tell how to make a carport to the house for a polycarbonate and corrugated car, give photos and video instructions.
All known designs of sheds are divided into the following main types:
According to the slope shape, the canopies of known constructions are divided into straight, inclined (duo-pitch or single-slope) and suspended curtain-shaped structures (arched, arc-shaped, pyramidal, dome-shaped, etc.).
In addition, awnings can vary in the class of materials used for their manufacture (metal, stone, wood, mixed), in their functional purpose, as well as in size and location.

Before you begin the installation work, you must prepare a sketch sketch of the future shed and decide on its style, taking into account the design of the main buildings of the suburban area. When choosing materials for construction, we advise you to pay your attention to polycarbonate, whose flexibility and plasticity make it possible to construct canopies in the form of original volumetric structures.
At the same time, we should not forget that your canopy should be strong enough and could successfully withstand both wind and possible snow loads. This circumstance should be taken into account when choosing the angle of inclination of the roof structure of the shed and when calculating the cross section of its supporting supports.
As the steepness and the size of the slope increases, the wind loads on it will also increase, which must be taken into account at the initial stage of structural design. When calculating wind loads and elements of the whole structure as a whole, we recommend that you follow the provisions of SNiP 2. 01. 07-85.
This is how a wooden house canopy is built for cars:

In this article we will look at the currently widespread construction, which is a frame made of a selected material with a polycarbonate coating. To make it, you will need the following materials and tools:
After preparing the sketch, you need to decide on the material of the supporting supports, which can be selected from the following list:
Deciding how To make a canopy correctly, one should begin by marking the area for future construction and preparing the electrical wiring, laid in a protective sleeve in the area of the canopy.
You can use any of the well-known building support structures from the following list as the base for the supporting elements (pillars):
It is necessary to provide protective measures to extend the life of all elements of your design. Metal frames must have a layer of anti-corrosion coating, and the elements of wood - treated with a special antiseptic.
When constructing supporting structures for polycarbonate profiles, you can use the old frames that you have left, for example, from the dismantled greenhouse.
Next, the roofing lath is mounted, the power of which depends on the workload on it, determined by the total area of the mounted cover.The roofing itself is mounted in compliance with well-known technological standards that correspond to the type of roof you have chosen.
The final step in the construction of the visor will be the installation of polycarbonate on the fabricated frame. This work is also quite simple.
Now we suggest to get acquainted with the production of visor-canopy from profiled sheeting. To do this, prepare such a building material:
As for the tool, stock up on the following:
If the frame is made on twisting, then the welding unit will not be useful. However, remember that the frame made by welding is much better. After a while, it will not loosen, which cannot be said for threaded connections.
Making the frame
When you buy a professional flooring, make sure that it has a special protective polymeric coating.
One of the simplest designs, which is mainly chosen by lovers of making homemade products - a lean-to canopy. The process of installation works as follows:
For fixing, use washers and rubber gaskets. So that the screws are evenly distributed over the canopy surface, first fix the sheet at the corners. After that, the screws are twisted along the entire length of the canopy.
If the length of the visor-canopy is relatively large and you need to install several sheets of sheeting, then this should be done with an overlap.
In the following video you will see a variety of awnings made of polycarbonate:
