I want to close in a carport that I have. It’s 21’ x 33’ with 10’ ceilings. One wall is already done so I dont have to worry about that. There is a wood shop that it is connected to. The shop has T111 exterior and I was planning on leaving it that way. OSB for interior. I don’t want any drywall unless somone can give a reason I need it. I don’t have any experience with this other than building an adition toour house with my dad when i was younger so I need recomendations from start to finish. I.E. insulation, vapor barrier, etc… I do alot of wood work so I’m sure I can do this with a little guidence. Building is all on a slab and I live in southern Louisiana

I wanted to know if anyone could give me a rough estimate of what it would cost to do this.

I think we need to know a little bit more about what you want to accomplish:

  • Do you need or plan on climate control? Do you need both heating and air conditioning?
  • What more can you tell us about the existing structure for the woodshop portion: Insulation? Have you looked beyond the OSB interior sheathing?
  • What code requirements do you have? Are you planning on having your work inspected? Are you somewhere that you need to submit drawings first? Beyond building code, do you have something like California’s Title 24 energy conservation rules in play?
  • What do you want to do in terms of electrical? Do you have sufficient service to the woodshop portion? Have you made a list of tools and potential power usage (ie: You’re gonna need a 240v 30A arc welder?)?
  • Do you need to worry about sound transmission?

The simple answer is: The building is already standing, slap up some walls with 2×4s, figure out how to tie those walls to the existing structure (are the posts wood or metal?), put a layer of housewrap on, cover with T111, run wires inside, put up OSB, and be done with it.

But I’d seriously consider drywall for fire resistance, and the approach I outlined there doesn’t optimize any of the questions I asked.

I recently built a stand-alone workshop with a living roof to Title 24 standards, I’ve got notes at home that I should scan and add to my pages on the process, but let’s see if we can dial in on this!

I have never personally built anything around the car port at home but I intend to do something similar sometime soon. I already have the walls up which are still looking sturdy so I would probably require an additional layering process only. Will that cost much lesser as compared to starting from scratch to cover a bigger surface area?
