The word “carport” originates from the same idea of a “ship port”. Basically a home port for your car.
It is commonly believed that the term became widely accepted sometime between the 1930s to 1950s. During this time period, vehicles tended to be less waterproof than they are today, so the need to cover a vehicle from the elements was even more prevalent than it is today. Yet, even as far as we have come in modern day vehicles, the need still exists. The sun is a major driving force in the degradation of pigments in paint causing them to become lighter in vibrance and have a dull, faded look. The sun and other elements breaking down the clear coat on a vehicle only speeds up the degradation of the actual paint color itself.

In the early days of the car, they were often stored in a barn, but the convenience of a dedicated metal carport has become very popular over the years. Many houses are built without an attached garage and often even without a detached garage. Carports can be used in either situation not only as a car port, but also to store atvs, motorcycles, tools, general storage and even RVs. As the material wealth has grown in the country, so has the need grown for the storage of that wealth. Vehicles are generally much more watertight these days than they were in the 30s, but the value retained from a well protected vehicle is usually far greater than one left to bear the elements.

Steel Buildings Sheds

Larger, more-expensive sheds are typically constructed of wood. They include features typically found in house construction. Such as windows, a shingled roof, and electrical outlets. Larger sheds provide more space for engaging in hobbies. Such as gardening, small engine repair, or tinkering. Some sheds have small porches or include furniture. These features allows them to be used for relaxation purposes.

In some cases, teleworkers and homeworkers
use wooden garden sheds as outdoor offices.
There is a growing industry in providing “off the peg” garden offices to cater for this demand, particularly in the UK but also in the US.

Shed owners can customize wooden sheds to match the features (e.g., siding, trim, etc.) of the main house. A number of decorative options can be added to sheds, such as dormers, shutters, flowerboxes, finials, and weathervanes. As well, practical options can be added such as benches, ramps, ventilation systems (e.g., in cases where a swimming pool heater is installed in a shed), and electric lighting.

Sheds designed for gardening, called “potting sheds”, often feature windows or skylights for illumination, ventilation grilles, and a potter’s bench for mixing soil and re-potting plants.

  • Garden sheds — The vast majority of sheds are garden sheds, including allotment sheds. This class of sheds also includes potting sheds and tool sheds. Most modern gardens are too small for more than a single shed, containing garden tools and lawn mowers.
  • Bike sheds (also called bicycle sheds) usually contain a framework on which bikes can be supported and locked.

    Bike sheds range from little more than a supported roof to more-complex structures with walls and locking doors.

  • Boat sheds (also called boatsheds) are lockable wooden sheds built near a body of water to store small private boats, bathing suits, and related items. Boat sheds used for rowing clubs are large structures for storing skiffs.

Steel Buildings History

History Of  Steel Buildings

Steel buildings are metal structure fabricated with steel for the internal support and for exterior cladding. As opposed to steel framed buildings which generally use other materials for floors, walls, and external envelope. Steel buildings are used for a variety of purposes including storage, work spaces and living

accommodation. They have evolved into specific types depending on how they are used.Steel buildings on a farm in Shenandoah County, Virginia.> > > > > > >

Now there are A-Frame Vertical and Horizontal and round top.
They first gained popularity

They first gained popularity in the early 20th century. Their use became more widespread during World War II and significantly expanded after the war when steel became more available. Steel buildings have been widely accepted, in part due to cost efficiency. The range of application has expanded with improved materials, products and design capabilities with the availability of computer aided design software.

Some advantages are….

With the propagation of mold and mildew in residential buildings, using steel minimizes these infestations. Mold needs moist, porous material to grow. Steel studs do not have those problems.

Steel is also a ‘green’ product; it is structurally sound and manufactured to strict specifications and tolerances. Steel doesn’t warp, buckle, twist or bend and any excess material is 100% recyclable.

Steel Buildings Types….

Some common types of steel buildings are “straight-walled” and “arch.” Further, the structural type may be classed as clear span or multiple span. A clear span building does not have structural supports (e.g. columns) in the interior occupied space.

Straight-walled and arch type refer to the outside shape of the building. More generally, these are both structural arch forms if they rely on a rigid frame structure. However, curved roof structures are typically associated with the arch term.

Steel arch buildings may be cost efficient for specific applications. They are commonly used in the agricultural industry. Straight-walled buildings provide more usable space when compared to arch buildings. They are also easier to blend into existing architecture. Straight-walled buildings are commonly used for commercial, industrial, and many other occupancy types.

Clear span refers to the internal construction. Clear span steel buildings utilize large overhead support beams, thus reducing the need for internal supporting columns. Clear span steel buildings tend to be less cost efficient than structures with interior columns. However, other practical considerations may influence the selection of framing style such as an occupancy where interior structural obstructions are undesirable (e.g. aircraft hangars or sport arenas).

Greenhouse kits & DIY greenhouses for the advanced and beginning gardener.

Why place a mini greenhouse in your backyard?

Because a greenhouse lets you control the growing environment and therefore enables you to grow whatever type of plant you want.

We’ve all seen plants that we would love to be able to grow, only to think that our natural growing environment just wouldn’t support that type of plant or flower.

Some plants need more sun, some less. Some plants need a moist growing environment; some need a dry one.
