Rosie on the House: Changing your carport into a garage

Many owners of older Arizona homes often ask us: How do I convert my carport into a garage?

It may look so easy. Just run some walls around the concrete slab of your carport and suddenly you have a garage. But, of course, this job requires a city or county building permit and maybe permission from a homeowners’ association. The planning department can even help with your design and give suggestions if you want to make this a do-it-yourself project. If you hire a licensed and insured contractor, we estimate it can cost $20,000-plus to create that single-car garage.
