Install Of The Week – 50×61 Commercial Shelter

50x61 Commercial Shelter

You can probably guess from our name that Carport Central provides metal carports. But carports and garages are only a small sample size of the custom metal building solutions we provide for homeowners and business owners every single day!


Several months ago, The Mariners’ Museum and Park in Newport News, VA reached out to us in need of a special metal building for a special conservation project.


The project? Providing a metal building cover to protect Nishimura 3746. The Nishimura 3756 isn’t a car; it’s actually a Japanese mini-submarine built way back in 1940. This wasn’t a WWII attack sub, but rather was a special vessel designed exclusively for exploration, salvage, and radar testing. It’s really a pretty cool story, and you can learn more about it here.

50x61 Commercial Shelter


Check out the commercial metal building we were able to provide and install for The Mariners’ Museum, which we are now featuring as our current Install of the Week. This 50’ x 61’ x 18’ metal shelter is plenty large enough to cover the Nishimura 3746, and also offers additional space for other planned conservation projects at the museum:

  • 50’ x 61’ vertical roof shelter (base length of 60’)
  • 18’ leg height
  • (2) 20’ x 16’ framed openings with portal frames
  • (1) 36” x 80” framed opening
  • Certified to meet local building code


Head on over to the building’s product page 50×61 Commercial Shelter for more pictures and details. Ready to speak with a friendly building specialist about getting one of these for yourself? Just give us a call at (980) 321-9898, and mention item: 506118CS.


The Mariners’ Museum is already making plans to have us come back and fully enclose their structure for climate control purposes in the near future. But if you’d like to go ahead and order a building of these dimensions that’s fully-enclosed to begin with, we can certainly make that happen for you!


In fact, you can customize your new building any way you like with Carport Central. You can even draw up your own perfect steel structure with our exclusive 3D Building Designer. We can take whatever building design you create, and use that to get your order started – it really is that simple!
