Free-standing or Joined to Your Home

Carport design and construction may involve the creation of a separate, free-standing carport structure in an available space.  Otherwise, your carport design may be created to adjoin a house wall or boundary line, which effectively will become a carport extension.  Either way, we can customise your design in a traditional or modern style, pitch the roof or keep it flat, line the interior ceiling, or install a skylight for natural lighting.  We can also provide added lighting options to help keep you safe, secure and protected from the elements. 

With Custom Outdoor Living, you’ll benefit enormously from our decades of experience and quality building expertise, especially when it comes to Timber Framed Carports.

We’ll guide you through the process of the design and construction of your new carport and ensure that all aspects of the project meet the specific requirements of:

    • Compliance with Building Regulations
    • Council and Engineering Specifications
    • Proper Approval Sign-off, and
    • A Builder’s Guarantee Certificate.


Renowned for our quality finishes, our choice to use the best materials possible, and our employment of talented and qualified tradespeople, Custom Outdoor Living specialises in making sure that your new carport in Melbourne looks like it belongs to the original home.  This is especially the case where heritage homeowners seek a new carport with period features, matching design elements, and the utmost in functionality.

What is a carport?

The word carport originates from the word “porte-cochère”.  By definition, this means that a carport is a covered portal or structure that is an incredibly versatile, effective and affordable solution to provide protection for your car from the weather (and particularly sun damage).  A carport, traditionally, has a covering roof supported by vertical structures, without four walls.  They may be used for ventilated car or vehicle storage, equipment storage, or shelter required for some other purpose.

''We are so pleased we chose a builder who could see our project through from start to finish. Design, permits and of course the build and fit out. We love our new alfresco room and use it every day. The team listened to understand our vision and it has come to life. Special shout out to the trades who stayed strong through several Covid related lock outs! Thankyou''

''Matt and the team at Custom Outdoor Living did a fantastic job of designing and building a customised double garage for us.
It has fit in really well next to the house and looks like it has always been there. Their attention to detail was excellent and they explained everything really well. They made the process from design to completion very easy for us.''
