All About House Plans with Porches

There are lots of different ways a porch can be added onto your home. Here are some of your porch options:

  • Wrap-around porches. It gives you plenty of deck space to sit anywhere you want with varying views. This is a great option if you are building out in the country or on an open land. Everything from lake houses to cabins to smaller ranches can look better with a wrap-around porch.

  • Screened-in porches. Kick back and enjoy the weather without being exposed to the elements with screened-in porches. House plans with porches often have this type of porch, because it is a great all-weather porch. There are some screened-in porches that can function as a room. For more comfort you should also add a heater there. When it’s ultra-hot, you can turn on fans or even add air-conditioning to up the luxurious ante.

  • Front porches. When you think of a porch, what kind do you see? Many like to place rocking chairs and sit back and watch the neighbors go by, or enjoy a nice evening. Porches are also fun to decorate throughout the year, serving as an aesthetically pleasing welcome to your home. House plans with front porch will offer a variety of options for how you want the porch to be built. You can choose from different materials (wood versus concrete) and many other aspects. This ensure you are getting the exact porch design that you want.

  • Back porches. A back porch is a great option if you live in a populated area and prefer to have more of a secure, private area to relax on.
