When you picture a carport, you probably imagine it out in the middle of a property, all by itself. That’s a traditional approach for a carport, but it’s not the only option. In some cases, it might be better to attach the carport to your house. As you’ll see in this article, attaching the carport offers several benefits, so carefully consider this option before finalizing your plan.

It Starts with Convenience
The primary advantage associated with attaching a carport to your home is convenience. When you park under the carport, you’ll be able to walk right into the house without venturing out into the elements. Rain pouring down when you return from the grocery store? No problem—unload your bags and take them inside without so much as a drop landing on your head.
Those who live in cold winter climates will be particularly thankful for this setup. On a snowy day, you can go to and from the car without trudging through the snow. With shoes that are clean and dry, you can walk right into the house knowing that the snow will stay outside where it belongs. In this way, a carport that is attached to your house acts in much the same way as an attached garage – it makes your transition from the car to the house much easier.
More Than Parking
You don’t have to limit the use of your new carport to parking, although that is sure to be a big selling point. When the weather is nice, you might choose to park your vehicles elsewhere so you can use your carport as a covered patio space. Place a table and some chairs under the roof of the carport and you will suddenly have a shaded spot for family and friends to hang out and enjoy the summer. When winter returns, you can put away the patio furniture and turn the carport back into the convenient parking spot that we discussed above.
Use Your Property for Other Purposes
If you place the new carport somewhere else on your property, that will limit the way that section of the property can be used in the future. Not only will you need to reserve the carport’s location for parking, but you’ll also need to maintain a path from the street to the carport for your vehicles to travel. That might not be a problem today, but it could become an annoyance in the future.
When you choose to attach your carport to the house, you keep everything together. A driveway probably exists already in the direction of the house, so you don’t need to use up any more space for another path. Whatever you decide to do in the future with your property, it won’t be encumbered by the carport.
Get the Kids Outside
All parents can relate to the need to get their kids outside from time to time. Kids love playing outdoors, and sometimes the walls of the house just don’t offer enough space for the energy and noise that kids need to get out. Of course, Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate with outdoor plans, which is where an attached metal carport can come in handy.
With a little creativity, you can turn your carport area into a fun play space for the kids to enjoy. Even if you do use the carport for parking most of the time, you can move the cars out of the way for a couple of hours to repurpose this space as a play area for your kids and their friends. With protection from rain or the bright sun, you might be able to do crafts, dance to some music, or even play a sport.
