Any large carports out there??

I am going to build a 3-vehicle carport out of metal and wanted to see if any of you all have built a similar one? I don't want to use wood since we get a fair amount of snow and don't want the roof to fall in on the vehicles.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have an enclosed garage

I already have an enclosed three car garage to work on my toys. The dogs have taken over a small portion of one bay with their bed. I'll attach a photo of the garage if you guys want to see it. It has the usual two tall Craftsman boxes and a real nice custom counter that I "obtained" from a local diner that was being torn down.
I "obtained" a stainless steel 17' wide x 15" deep sliding door storage counter. It is the one that would have been behind the waitress and the kitchen window. I took out the pale green sliding doors and had my local body shop buddy paint them Craftsman red. I got some extra bling and slapped two Snap-On logo emblems on each upper corner.

Thanks for the help on the carport. I am still looking at if I should now use aluminum or steel structure.

Mine is presently a pipe structure with a tarp over it, it does good to keep the blistering sun off but that is about it.

One of those links I posted have Quansas hut style poly tarps a Friend of mine has one I was impressed at the thickness & quality of it

This one was a Heavy duty pipe 12' x20' that I stretched out in the middle its 2" heavy wall pipe "fence pipe came on 22' sections
