Oak Porch Considerations.

You may want to consider your homes’ style and appearance.  A quaint cottage or a large detached family home?  Stone or brick-built?  Is the roof pitch forward-facing or gable facing?

Adding a porch will definitely add character but you should think about the above considerations first.

An oak porch may not always be suitable or you may have immovable features on the property making the addition more complicated.  At Oak By Design we ask if you are able to forward a picture of your property.  This allows us to assess the oak porch’s location and point our any anomalies prior to proceeding.

Proportions and first-floor windows tend to be the main discussions on how an oak porch can be incorporated. Although you can add chacter to the front of your property, there are many considertions to finalise first.  Over time we will be created more articles on key areas that need to be addressed.
