Your carport can be freestanding or attached to your home. Besides being protection for your recreational vehicles, automobiles, and equipment, it can also serve as an entertainment area for parties and family get-togethers.

The beauty of a carport is its versatility. It can partially be covered or fully covered, act as a windbreak and if you change your mind and want it fully enclosed, walls or extra roofing can be easily added later.

What Makes Us Different

Timberwright Craftsmen take great pride in their attention to the small details. We smooth all exposed edges on our heavy timbers with a ¼” round. The rounded edge allows the timbers to retain their rough appearance, with a touch of refinement. Our top “shade planks” are spaced closer together, when compared to other pergolas offering additional shade and a unique look. We use true to size rough-sawn timber for all components rather than standard smaller ‘dimensional’ lumber. We also use taller and wider rafters on our double tier roof as compared to what you will find elsewhere.

All of our Kits are delivered ready to assemble with all parts pre-cut, drilled and notched with roof layout, and pre-stained with two coats of premium grade UV-rated exterior semi-transparent stain, which makes installation even faster, more convenient and ensures for a high quality RV or car cover! Our special mortised joints not only allow for a long-lasting, perfect joint, but it also virtually eliminates the use of unsightly galvanized brackets, hangers, and bolts.

Each pergola comes complete with all hardware and post mounts needed for to install your car or RV cover. Our unique assembly method allows the Timber pergola to have a sleek final appearance with no visible screws, lags, bolts, hangars or mechanical fasteners.

• 500% Stronger Than Hangers and Bolts
• Structural Integrity

• Pre-cut Slots
• Fast Alignment
• Simple Installation

But there is more.
There is an essential element that makes all the difference!

The Dovetail Difference®

dovetail interlocking connections
dovetail difference tight joints 18 months

 The Dovetail Difference® allows for even a large oversized 20′ beam, for example, to just slide into and lock in place with an extremely tight seam and no unsightly gaps. With a beveled cut, the wood can naturally expand and contract in the outdoors, wherein you will not see any gaps as it is behind the dovetail mortise notch. Not only is The Dovetail Difference® stronger, but it also adds to the beauty of the structure by maintaining a tighter more aesthetically pleasing joint. This also allows for stronger and larger shelters.

If I had a complaint, it would be that Brian told us it would take us 2 weeks to build, It took two old men and two young strong guys 2 DAYS!!!! It went together SOLID and without any modifications!!! Awesome engineering!!”

Cover Expensive Farm Equipment

Industrial-strength tarps can cover equipment, tools, and tractors and help to keep them dry and rust-free. Timber frame shelters offer a more permanent solution for vehicles and farming machinery, a significant investment in operating a family-run farm or a large-scale commercial farm.

Timber frame ShadeScape® kits are individually designed to be perfectly sized for all types of task vehicles, tractors, trailers, miscellaneous equipment, tools and supplies. You can have peace of mind, whether you are covering a vegetable processor, apple harvester, de-stoner, or mulch-tiller, structural timber can help in the prevention of damage to expensive farm equipment.

Walls for a pavilion

Timber frame ShadeScape® kits can easily have walls added at any time for additional protection to use as a storage building, garage or barn.

Can Always Do a Second Phase

“I might have been willing to cover the entire pool, which would have been a huge pergola; but Tyler said, ‘Why don’t we start with one section and see how you like it? You can always build more.’

They built it in a way that we could do a second phase if we wanted. They weren’t really pushy. It was clear that he was just trying to help me meet our goals.” – Sarah Burton – UT


Timber frame ShadeScape® kits can also be attached to an existing structure, such as a home, outbuilding or barn.

Heavy Timber Shade Shelter Kits

We ship ShadeScape® Pergolas, Pavilions, and Arbors daily throughout North America. These kits range from 2,500 – 11,000 lbs. (they often larger on commercial or large custom projects).

The average ShadeScape™ shipment weighs over 5,500 lbs. We transport the kit by freight because of the sheer mass and weight of the timbers. ShadeScape™ Timbers are not a small bundle of wood or dimensional lumber from your local big box hardware store. These structures are NOT like your average $800 – $2,000 cookie cutter pergola kit that weighs somewhere around 200 lbs. – 380 lbs and fits inside 2-3 cardboard boxes.

Packaged ShadeScape® structures have an average of 16 feet in length, 36′′ in height, & 48′′ width. We build custom heavy-duty pallets to ship these Shad-eScape™ kits to sustain the mass and weight of the timbers. When we ship your kit, it is going to come on the back of a semi-trailer. Remember, our structures are 10 to 30 times the weight of a big box store kit. Despite their massive size, they are easier and quicker to assemble than smaller less sturdy kits. Western Timber Frame™ utilizes a patent-pending dovetail joint meth-od for our beam-to-post connections. Everything is pre-cut, pre-finished, and pre-fitted. We make it easy to assemble.

These kits consist of handcrafted timbers that when installed will showcase a magnificent outdoor structure that will last for decades. Go ahead and compare the cost and maintenance of metal, dimensional lumber, vinyl, or reinforced aluminum pergola kit against a DIY ShadeScape® Structure. You will find that pound-for-pound a Western Timber Frame™ pergola or pavilion kit costs less, has less maintenance, and will still be standing after more than 25 years.

Fabric Recreational Vehicle & Car Covers Uncovered

Before the late 1980s, some will recall cars that changed color, e.g. red cars that oxidized, turning pinker over time. Cars used to be factory painted with several layers of pigmented paint over a primer coat. The color coating had little resistance to the sun’s rays. Eventually, the finish would degrade to a chalky surface. That layer would then be polished with a rubbing compound. Repeating the polishing process would then thin the paint layers until the primer and metal were exposed. Modern color and clear coat finishes have come a long way, and few areas of an automobile are as misunderstood as the paint.

Car manufacturers began using clear coat finishes making a more durable coating than in the past. The paint has a pigmented layer that is covered with a translucent layer with UV protectants. From waxes, polishes, clay bars, to covers, looking after your vehicles facade can be confusing with so many competing companies vying for attention.

Here is a look at some fabric car cover considerations.

UV Protection

People buy car covers to safeguard against moisture, scratches, debris, pollen, insects and bird droppings. But the number one reason most vehicle owners want a protective cover is to keep their paint jobs in pristine condition and prevent fading from UV sunlight.

Manufacturers of car covers’ main promotion of their products are in the claim of how effective a fabric cover is in blocking UV rays, implying that when a car is exposed to the sun, the paint will fade, crackle and peel.

Modern clear coat finishes have come a long way, with UVA and UVB radiation inhibitors, as long as the finish is in good condition, the paint will be protected. Plastic and rubber interiors do benefit from a cover, but the paintwork does not need the same amount of protection from the sun as did automobiles of the past. As a word of caution, if it is protected from UV radiation you are wanting, some fabric car covers do not actually protect against UV rays.

Scratch Protection

One primary reason for buying a fabric car protector is to keep a vehicle from becoming scratched, when in fact, putting on a car cover with any dirt or debris can cause some minor scratches. The cover itself will not scratch but the dirt it picks up can. Fabric covers attract and hold particles that can scratch the clear coat as it is slid over a vehicle.

Hailstorm Protection

Hailstorms are another reason people use car covers, however, covers typically lay on the surface of the vehicle and offer very little protection from large hailstones. There are car jackets that can inflate over your car that can provide a cushion of air to prevent hailstones from causing damage.

Long-term Protection

As is mentioned above, covers for RVs and vehicles attract dirt. They are also difficult to wash. Though vehicle covers can be nice for indoor use when storing a vehicle, keeping an automobile covered outdoors for several days isn’t always the best idea. Even covers that are said to be 100% waterproof will allow moisture to collect between the car’s surface and the cover. Moisture and hot, sunny days can create a degrading environment and damage bodywork.

We have you covered for all your outdoor activities.

ShadeScape® shelters provide shade for outdoor activities or protection for cars, boats, recreational vehicles, farm equipment and more. A DIY carport shelter is a great answer to free up space or create a sheltered area that can double as a space for entertainment and relaxation.
