This step by step diy project is about how to build a front porch. Building a wooden porch is a complex project, but it will create additional living space and it will most likely liven up the look of your house. We strongly recommend you to set out the porch in a professional manner before starting the actual project. Use pressure-treated lumber when building the front porch, as the components will be exposed to bad weather. After setting the wooden posts into concrete and making sure their tops are horizontal, you need to fit the girders.
In order to lock the joists to the girders tightly, we recommend you to use twist fasteners. Smart Tip: Apply several coats of stain or paint to the wooden components, if you want to protect them from decay and to enhance the look of the bed frame. Thank you for reading our project about how to build a front porch and we recommend you to check out the rest of the projects.
Except for mason jars, I believe wood pallets are the most useful and upcycle material for DIY projects. Of course the cost will be low as you are using pallets for the base of the deck, but as with any DIY project you need to do the work and have the time to do so. I built this pergola several years ago from this plan, it turned out nicely and has gotten several compliments from friends. All kits include the heavy gauge bolts, screws, lags, nuts, washers, swings, swing-hangers, A-Frame brackets, etc., plus an easy to read set of 3D illustrated step-by-step playset plans.


If you want to keep the costs at a decent level, you could try to undertake the project by yourself.
Dig 2-3′ deep holes and set the posts into concrete, if you want to get the job done in a professional manner. In addition, we recommend you to dig 3′ deep holes in the ground and set the posts into concrete. Work with attention, otherwise the joists won’t be able to support the weight in a professional manner.
After aligning the beams at both ends, we recommend you to secure the components together by using the fasteners and appropriate nails. Moreover, countersink the head of the screws and make sure the head of the screws are at the same level with the surface. Don’t forget to LIKE and SHARE our projects with your friends, by using the social media widgets.
And since they are made from a sturdy wood they are excellent for use in DIY outdoor projects such as building a deck. Easily sized to fit any space, this versatile pergola will enhance your deck, patio, or yard. Check the legal codes before planning the porch, as there are many legal requirements that you should comply with. Make sure you check if the diagonals are equal and check the corners for squareness, before digging the holes and fitting the posts.


Always align and pre-drill the components before inserting the galvanized screws, to prevent the wood from splitting and to get a nice appearance.
In addition, we recommend you to attach the railing posts to the framing before fitting the decking boards, as there are a few notches that you should make to fit around them.
The one shown here occupies a 111X148" "footprint," but you'll learn how to increase or decrease its dimensions as needed.
It is essential to decide if you are going to build a free-standing deck or if you will attach it to the house.
In addition, apply waterproof glue between the beams as to enhance the rigidity of the structure.
Use a carpentry square to check if the corners are right-angled each time you fit a component.
Take a look on the rest of the project is you want to learn how to build the railing and the stairs for the porch.
