The building height is defined as the vertical side leg height, and not the center height of the structure which will vary in height depending upon the width. The center height is always at least 2 ft taller than the side leg unless it is 30 foot or longer where we use trusses to span between the sides of the building.

If you do not have this type of water, you may be fine to have a carport that is not closed in. You also need to look into the local laws about any limitations on the size of a carport or laws about the type of materials that are required for your carport or any certifications that you need to get.
