Don't Let DIY carport installation drive you crazy

Doing it yourself can feel like this…

If you’re a ‘handy’ sort of person who likes rolling your sleeves up and saving money by doing so, we have the solution for you, a DIY carport kit!

Starting from scratch and following carport designs or plans from the internet is an exercise in frustration, and you never really know what it will look like until its done. Our carport kits and metal garage kits offer our professionally finished appearance in a kit that you can assemble yourself!



DIY Carports?

There’s a right way, and a wrong way to build a carport or metal garage…

“The Amish can raise a barn; I can TOTALLY do that too.”

Sure, you could probably build some sort of a structure with the help of a few friends, but there are plenty of reasons to step back and let our experienced, professional installers do it for you instead!


Most people begin do-it-yourself projects with the notion that they will be saving themselves money in the long run. Time after time, weekend warriors head out to their local hardware store to stock up on tools and materials they think will get them through their projects, but head back home to find that they are not as prepared as they believed. More often than not, it is more expensive to attempt a project by yourself, find that it is too much work or you are not quite prepared, and then hire a professional to complete the project. Carports, garages and other steel buildings are no exception. All Elephant Structures’ products come with FREE delivery and free installation, meaning there is no money-related hurdle between you and a professionally installed metal structure!


Your time is valuable. You work all week, you deserve time to relax! As much as you might enjoy doing home improvement projects, there are some projects that you can feel good about leaving to the professionals. Our installers work in well synchronized teams daily, installing buildings very similar to yours. They are efficient and effective, carrying out the installation quickly, but without rushing through their work. Having our installers complete the project for you allows you the opportunity to do other things and still feel great about the work being done to build your structure.

Building Code Compliance

Often, customers are not aware that many counties require a permit to build, even for things like carport kits and small sheds. Our staff is fully versed on what it takes to meet county building requirements and can help walk you through the process. We can provide you with engineered drawings for your permit, and ensure that your certified carport, metal garage or other structure has the correct wind and snow load ratings and other specifications needed to stand up to all required building codes.

We are willing to work with you closely to ensure work is done to your specifications. With this building process tailored to you and your needs, there is no need to go out of your way to pick up your own materials and do it yourself! Trust the professionals at Elephant Structures to take care of your order in an efficient and timely manner. All that’s left to you is to enjoy and make use of your beautiful new structure!
