It is often good to have a porch in a building or a house so as to add up to the entrance. Basically the porch is a covered platform, with a separate roof at the entrance of a building. More simply, we can say that it is more like a verandah, that can be a simple open or enclosed room and even a gallery connected to a building. While building a house, there is a possibility that you may run short of funds and it may become difficult to build a porch, or due to some other reason you left the idea of porch that time. Now if you need a porch with a roof, you can do it yourself. Follow the quick steps and build your own porch easily.
Pieces of wood with length 4x 4, 2x8 and 2x4 feet.
Heavy duty bolts
5/8 inch plywood
Now make the frame for the top of the posts by taking wood pieces 2x8 ft long for the length of the porch and same for the width.
In order to avoid any shortage in measurement while cutting, increase 8 inches in each measurement and arrange them in a rectangular frame by attaching with each other.
