The 20 foot wide inside (22 outside roof width) Kootenay steel carport kit combines the natural beauty of wood with the strength and durability of steel. Made in Kelowna, British Columbia, this sturdy DIY steel carport timber frame kit system provides you with the right size and quantity of high strength powder coated steel trusses, post boots, braces and fasteners. You must provide the wood and roofing from your local hardware store to our specs provided. An eaves trough can also be attached on each side. You may also choose to substitute a steel roof for clear or bronze 6 mm polycarbonate roofing panels and use it as a summer gazebo or pergola.
This timber frame style wood and steel carport provides a snow load rating estimated at over 90 pounds per square foot (assuming steel 26 gauge roof) although you are responsible for permitting in your area. Our patented and CSA approved welded steel trusses, post boots and brackets support a 26 to 29 gauge ribbed metal roof. Please note that we can not provide an engineers stamp since each region and installation is different, but we do provide required drawings for permits further below.
We ship within B.C. and Canada, but would have to quote your location with an address provided. Contact us for more information or with any questions. NOTE: You may need to provide your own regional engineered stamp (we do not provide engineered drawings approved for all of BC or Canada, this is not possible).
TRUSSES, BRACKETS & BOOTS
2 inch square steel powder coated trusses (1/8th inch thick)
6x6 posts - 6 @ 8feet height (5 1/2" x 5 1/2" nominal size fits boots/trusses but you may wish to get 6"x6" posts and trim down 1/4" on each side - this also helps water not seep into boots given overhang)
2x12 beams - 2 @ 2x12s (16 ft)
2x6 purlins - 16 @ 2x6s (20 ft)
14 roof panels 36" wide @ 139" long (2" overhang) plus 20' long ridge cap and fasteners
ASSEMBLY: 2 people, 2 or 3 days for a 20x20 carport
NOTES:You must drill holes in posts and beams and cut all wood to length as per permit drawings provided. We suggest using only 3 of the holes for each top post, furthest away from the end of the 2x12 beam (to prevent splitting). https://grizzlyshelter.ca/products/kootenay-20-foot-wide-carportAlso a good idea to order 5% extra wood and roofing to account for possible flaws/warping/damage.
Total Wood/Roof Cost Estimate for 20x20 Finished Carport: $5K average.
