oops guess I got kinda caught up in myself huh?!?! Lol sorry.
I didn't build the whole thing I just fixed the holes I found and added the sheet of plywood and the doors and chicken wire.
I will give you the rough dimentions of it though. It is 8' x 8' overall with an 8 foot front sloping down to about 7 feet at the back for water shed. It really is just cobbled together. Like I said it has 4 cedar posts, one on each corner. Then a header in the front of the building and in the back with the L and R sides of the building supported lower with 2x4's running front to back. It has 4 larger pieces of lumber that run front to back for the roof with 2x4's run L to R over that to help stabilize it and give a place to nail the tin to. I really really don't know if this would be something that you would want to build on purpose!
And I really think that a car port may be better in FL. This big hot mess would be rotten in no time! (it already is a tad here in Ar) And to be perfectly honest I don't think I would have kept my horses in it even if we didn't have the chickens...there are a million nails and the metal siding could easily injure a horse. I have seen carposts that have worked wonderfully for a run in type shelter. They help with the sun, yet allow excellent ventalation, if its really stormy and blows hard where you live you could always cover a couple sides with tarps. Its not likely that you will be fighting off snow and ice. Sorry if I am rambeling, I just don't think you should build MY shelter...lol...it wouldn't pass a code test that's for sure!!!! LOL
