i just bought my first house back in october and i'm having a blast remodeling it. It's a 1972 Brick Ranch with 2 car carport. I'm in the middle of converting the carport into a garage. My question involves how to finish the front carport in regards to installing a garage door. I plan on installing a 7 x 17 foot garage door. I want to know how to finish the sides and headroom of the front. Does that make sense? In other words, the overall opening right now is roughly 8 x 19 feet. Do I just frame these areas with treated lumber directly to the concrete floor with anchors? Or should I install a small brick foundation for the sides and then frame? See attached pictures. Thanks for any help - this is all new to me!
