    Planning on doing a small lean to to the back of the house for my Motorbike say 2m by 3m any tips as I am just looking at the planning at the mo.

    I was wondering is this a straightforward doable job for a DIY'er? Not looking at anything special.

    Perfectly doable, it'll help if you have a nice solid and level concrete or flagged base though.
    The roof height will have to be fairly high if you tend to put your bike on the centre stand, of course!
    Any vertical posts in the middle of the structure may get in your way - just a point to consider.

    my suggestion
    choose an exact size to match the corrugated plastic lengths you can easily get
    plan the frame to be about 60-70mm smaller so when you attach gravel boards to the front off the structure you have around 40-50mm overhang to cover the brackets and about 25-35mm into the gutter

    Thanks guys for the replies, food for thought there.

    I have a flagged base so that is a good start I guess.

    I am hoping to keep costs down and to make it look reasonable and watertight, maybe asking too much!
