Wood structure/carport. Easier to extend or reduce size ?

I want to have a wood framed carport built at the gable end of the bungalow. Unfortunately the area is not a regular size, it is wider at the front (drive-in) and narrower at the back.
The diagram of the ground area gives the sizes. Would it be easier to get a 'ready to assemble' structure (ie as in picture) and make the front wider or easier to make the back narrower ? I want the apex roof style so it follows the line of the bungalow roof.
I will NOT be doing the work but using a builder/carpenter to do it.
I know I could have something built from scratch but I think that this would be the expensive option.
Any opinions appreciated.
