On first appearance, carports may seem a low-rent alternative to having an enclosed garage. But due to the fact that these structures generally has at most one or two walls, (or in the case of free-standing carports, none), you never have to worry about filling it up with clutter since there’s usually just enough room to fit one or two cars into it.
Having just celebrated its centennial back in 2010, (the W.B. Sloane House in Elmhurst, Ill. is credited as being the first home designed with a carport), this lowly structure actually has regal lineage as storied architect Frank Lloyd Wright coined the term it would become known by. As for its availability on Long Island, homes with carports are snapped up fairly quickly as MLSI only credits 11 with having been sold in the 2013 calendar year and January 2014.
