More than a few years ago (2011 to be exact), I wrote a post about historic detached carports and included some designs of our own that we thought would be fun to build and useful in a variety of situations. Like many of my random design exercises, none of the sketches were built, until now. And I must say that it looks even better in real life than in my head.
A customer in the oldest city in the US, St. Augustine contacted us and was interested in replacing a rather rickety open garage behind her new-to-her 1920s bungalow. We started with some garage designs, but didn't find the right solution until we dusted off the carport/ shed sketches and found something that fit both the site and the customer's needs.
Due to the increased price of lumber and the inability to get the products we prefer for our sheds and other buildings in a timely manner, we are temporarily pausing quotes for new projects. We are doing this in order to maintain the quality and design style that Historic Shed™ is known for. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope that lumber and other material pricing and supply chains stabilize soon.
