How did you secure the bases of these pillars to the driveway? - I would like to do a similar design. But the driveway is already built, so I was just going to drill rebar into the driveway and pore casted cement as a the pillar footers, only about 1 foot high. I'm nervous that I may need to cut the driveway because it won't be secure enough. The carport will be about 20x20 ft. Ideas?

You are going to need a footing for the posts. I don't think that i would trust bolting down through 4" of concrete, pretty sure you would end up with cracks throughout the drive way. I have solid concrete post behind the brick with rebar tied into the footing and then have the posts bolted via a simpson hanger to the concrete post and the post bolted to the bracket.

Roughly 22' wide by 24' deep - about the same as a two car garage.

Are the roof supports 2 X 10, or 2 X 12? - Simple enough, but are there plans for this carport? Roger Buggle
