Enclosed Carport: An Easy Solution

Enclosed Carport: An Easy Solution

We love the idea of an enclosed carport. That’s why we set out, long ago, to create an enclosed carport to end all carports. That’s right–we’ve done it.

If you’re looking to fully enclose your vehicle or or other storage, you couldn’t have picked out a better time to do it. Enclosed carports from Elephant Structures are a great addition to your home. What could possibly make it better? Well, an enclosed carport is now easier than ever to buy.

When you pay a visit to www.Carport.com, you have access to countless custom building designs, including your very own enclosed carport. And what’s more? If you call us, we’ll help you with even more customization options than you’ll find on our website. We want you to get the building you’ve always wanted, not have to settle on something just because it’s what you saw on the side of the road.

So when you say you want an enclosed carport, you might picture something like this…

…or you might picture something completely different. That’s the beauty of it–we’re all totally original, unique human beings! And when we say we want something (like an enclosed carport with just the right specifications), it’s always nice to get that exact thing.

Customization options for our enclosed carports include doors, windows, siding options, color, frame dimensions, roof type, and more. We could do the math as to how many totally unique buildings might be created on our website, but we’re not mathematicians–we’re carport tacticians. (Actually, we did the math–there were many, many zeros involved.)

So if you’re in need of a the perfect amount of protection from the toughest steel in the biz, head over to Carport.com and start creating an enclosed carport you can be proud of.

3 Residential Carport Designs That Impress

3 Residential Carport Designs That Impress

A residential carport doesn’t have to be lame. After all, it’s got one of the most important jobs on the homestead, right? And like anything this important, it has to look good. A sleek metal exterior. Not just the husk of a steel building–you want something jazzed up. Something that shows off your snazzy self.

And it doesn’t have to be all about the looks. After all, what use is a good-looking building when it doesn’t actually do anything? That’s why we’ve brought our chic sense of style and combined it with steel designs engineered for durability without equal. Because we take pride in our residential carports. And we want you to be proud of yours.

The Residential Carport

What you see here isn’t just a regular residential carport. This is the future of carports. It’s a residential carport designed to impress. From the sweeping green of your backyard, to the peaking towers of the city, this is the only thing that stands between your car and the elements. And we don’t know about you, but its custom design sure does impress.

White Residential Carport

Custom carport designs can be fully-enclosed. Take this one, for instance. Three walls are perfect for saying, “I am a practical and upbeat homeowner, and I car what happens to my car.” The custom color selection here is clean, modern, and to be honest, pretty slick. The A-Frame roof is modern and gives the carport a sleek, sharp appearance.

red garage

There are few things as charming as a red garage. It’s a reminder of old times. Sure, we made this a blog post about residential carport designs, but what’s a garage if not a fully-enclosed carport? While the white residential carport above provides increased protection against sun and precipitation, this garage design is perfect protection against all the damaging elements. That includes sun, rain, wind, snow, hail, and those slow-attacking autumn leaves. This garage in particular is designed for 2 cars, with plenty of space to move around and store your equipment! Now that’s impressive.

How does your current residential carport stack up to these?

Prepare for Winter Weather with a Carport

Prepare for Winter Weather with a Carport

It’s Not Too Early to Prepare for Winter!

Yes yes, I know, it’s only August. However, some areas are going to start feeling some of the extreme effects of fall & winter in two or three months!! Once inclement weather begins to become more common, the installation times for metal buildings get prolonged, as dates need to be pushed back to accommodate the winter storms. On top of that, everyone will be scrambling to get their orders in, making it even harder to get your building done. That’s not to say it’s impossible, we certainly fulfill many orders in the winter time, but if you want to be prepared for the first winter storm of the season, beginning your project today is a good idea! If you live anywhere in the north, or in a mountainous region, winter will be upon us sooner than you can imagine, so don’t wait!

Metal Carports, Garages, and Barns Protect Your Valuables

What happens if you don’t prepare for winter? Well, you could lose a ton of money due to repair costs, especially if you live in a more extreme-weather prone area. A metal carport, barn, or garage can do wonders for your vehicle or outdoor equipment in that regard. However, not only will our products protect your valuables from hail and damaging snow loads, they can also make your life way more convenient. There may be nothing more aggravating than having to wake up early for work so you can scrape ice and snow off your vehicle in the bitter cold. Not only is this bad for the general wear-and-tear of the car, but it is 100% preventable. You also have options to upgrade your steel building in various ways to improve its performance against extreme weather.

Save Yourself Hassle!

Save yourself from a longer wait and a more stressful installation period. Our team is ready to help you start building your winter preparedness project! Don’t forget, we deliver AND install all purchases for free! So give us a call at (855) CAR-PORT, and let’s start prepping!

Customizable Carport Options Detailed

Customizable Carport Options Detailed

Our Metal Building Options

Roofing Options

Regular: The regular roofing option has horizontal panels and rounded at the ends for a traditional and appealing look.

A-Frame: This roofing option has horizontal panels and a sharper more contemporary look.

Vertical: The vertical option has vertical panels with a sharper look. This is the sturdiest of the roofing options since the panels encourage natural runoff of snow, debris, and rain.

Wall and Roof Colors

We have a variety of color and trim options for all of our buildings. These are: red, brown, burgundy, clay, green, beige, gray, dark gray, tan, blue, white, and black. No matter what you desire, you can find a color combination that matches your home and needs.


We can build custom metal building frames at a vast array of sizes; you are nearly unlimited with size options. We can build to fit any size vehicle or storage needs. We can even build a barn large enough to be a riding arena with massive amounts of clear span. You can also have your frame certified to withstand extreme weather, high winds, and heavy snow loads. Finally, you can upgrade the standard 14 gauge steel to 12 gauge steel which is thicker and more durable.


Any amount of walls can be designed for your carport; enclose your carport with four walls and turn it into a garage, or just put on one or two walls for side protection. Each wall can be a full wall, or you can design them to be half-walls on the top or bottom. The general idea is that you can design your building with any amount or style of walls for your particular needs!


Your building can have any amount (size permitting), of garage doors, windows, and walk-in doors. You can put them on the walls you desire, and garage doors are customizable by size. And lastly, you can have auger anchors installed for certain types of installation.
