Anyway, the carport will have two huge windows (the old patio doors from the bedroom turned on their sides). It'll have a long overhanging sloped roof, hopefully giving the whole thing a funky contemporary look that will compliment the house's lines. The siding will match the vertical siding that's on the one section of the house, too.
Obviously, this is as far as I've gotten on this project. I wanted to have some decent plans in hand (the boards I drew on the plan are actually the true dimensions and measurements I'll use to build) to take to the County to get a building permit. While I'm happy to have a plan in hand, I don't think I'll get much further until several other higher priority projects happen first: the kitchen, flooring in the dining and extra rooms, and the fence.
