Before building a porch even begins, some states require building permits and may be able to deny the builder from installing the porch they desire if the porch is obstructive or dangerous. It is important to check with the city to make sure that all of the required paperwork and permits are acquired.

Next comes the design and blueprint stage of porch-making. Blueprints and architectural drawings of any type have very precise measurements and symbols to aid in the building process. All of the dimensions of porch should be clearly written and drawn to scale on the blueprints. Furthermore, blueprints typically show the structure from various angles, such as a birds-eye view and a side view. If the porch is going to have a roof or electricity, separate blueprints should be drawn to explain all of the wiring that will happen, and show all of the building plans to make sure the roof is fully supported and up to code.
