Our Wooden Carport Kits
Whether you are looking for a single or a double carport, we can build a bespoke kit fitted to the specifications of your cars and your property. If you are looking for a simple carport to protect your vehicle from the elements, or a more complex build, with features such as a flat roof or extra storage spaces, we will be able to accommodate your needs. Our wooden carports are beautiful, blending with both classical and modernist styles of housing.
While a carport by its nature will always be single storey, other aspects of your design are highly customisable. Maximum eaves height could be raised or lowered, floor area widened, roof type changed. If you are looking for a larger carport to use as an alternative to a double garage, we can build it for you.
While we offer a range of classic designs, we pride ourselves on our bespoke carport kits. We believe in working with our customers to build them the precise carport their property needs. Our carports are reliable and hard wearing.
Designed for Easy Assembly
We prime all of our kits for easy assembly, using traditional jointing techniques. All of our wooden panels are fitted with tongue and groove design, allowing them to quickly slot together. This helps to ensure that building our wooden carport kits is a quick and pleasurable self build experience for anyone with basic DIY skills.
All of our kits come with simple step by instructions to help you through the construction process. We can also provide detailed planning drawings to you upon request, should you need them.
Why Choose Oak Frames Direct?
We take pride in the exceptional quality of our products and our bespoke service. We believe we are the clear choice amongst suppliers of timber frame carport kits in the UK for several reasons:
Sustainably Sourced Timber
All of our wooden carport kits are made in your choice of sustainable green oak or Douglas-fir timber, sourced from a specially selected site in France. For every tree used in the production of our kits, we plant three more saplings, showing our commitment to environmental sustainability.
Thorough Timber Grading
Our team of experienced carpenters and timber graders carefully check every piece of wood as it arrives at our workshop. They’ll utilise state of the art technology to check for warps, flaws or cracks, and anything that could threaten the structural integrity of our carports will be sustainably recycled. This ensures the strength of our products, whilst underlining our environmental commitments.
Precision Manufacturing Guaranteed
We use a top of the range Hundegger CNC machine to precision cut each piece of wood in our kits. This helps to rule out human error and ensure that our kits are as easy to assemble and sturdy as possible. Our thorough checking processes help us to guarantee that each of our kits will be a long lasting addition to your property.
Every wooden carport kit we sell is Q-Mark certified, an industry leading quality assurance scheme. This showcases the quality of our wood, our manufacturing standards, and the longevity of our products. The Q-Mark is an exacting standard, and we are proud to carry it on our entire range.

A Selection Of Our Wooden Carport
Do I Need Planning Permission for a Timber Carport?
It’s unlikely that a wooden carport will need planning permission, as most designs will easily fall within the bounds of permitted developments. If you are building a more complex or larger design there is a possibility that you may require either planning permission or Building Regulations approval.
There are also other reasons that you may require planning permission, such as if your property is on a world heritage site, an area of outstanding natural beauty, a national park, or a conservation area. To ensure that your wooden carport meets permitted development regulations, contact your local planning authority. If you need to apply for planning permission, Oak Frames Direct will be happy to provide assistance.

Just like our designs, our prices are bespoke, based on size of kit and material type. We don’t believe in charging more for custom-designed carports, as we think that all customers should be offered their ideal carport, at a fair price.
Our carports are affordably priced, and we offer free quotes on all of our products. If you are in any way concerned about the costs of our wooden carport kits, request a free quote online today, and we can give you a reasonable price for your bespoke new carport.
