Having a front porch is something nice yet ambitious. Maybe you might think it is such a big job to do and all, but with a little preparation and knowledge about how to build a front porch, you will be ready to do the project in DIY ways. Maybe you have no clue about building a porch, but if you learn it, the prize will be such a wonderful porch for you and your home. And by doing this you will also cut the cost of hiring pros for building your own front porch.
First step is choosing the beginning point where you want to start the building of the porch. Pick any part of your house’s front and then get a stake driven into the ground and get string tied to it. You will need to determine where you want your porch deck ends, and after deciding, get the stake driven again into the ground and get the string tied again like before. This will take less time if you have an assistant who helps you. Now that you have determined where you want to build the porch and how large it will be, you can get the project started.
The complete directions of building a front porch can be found easily complete with the video. All you need to do is to follow the steps one by one carefully. You will also need to ask a help from one of your family members or your friends, or it will be better if your helper is someone who has this kind of experience in creating front porch. You can easily hire pros for doing the project, but of course it will consume more budgets and it might be bad for your financial since to hire contractor itself is quite costly. Make sure you wear protective gloves when dealing with the lumber cutting, and keep children away.
