Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adding a porch to a house is a unique home-improvement project. The porch provides additional  living space that is both partly indoors and partly outdoors, and it serves as a transition between the outdoors and a home's interior. Ultimate Guide: Porches leads homeowners through the entire process of adding a porch to their homes--from design to construction to finishing. Starting with descriptions of the different types of porches, Ultimate Guide: Porches takes the reader through the entire porch-building process. Along the way, readers learn building tips and techniques from professional builders. How-to building sequences show the construction of actual porches built by experienced porch builders. This is an ideal book for anyone who wants to improve the look and functionality of their home by adding a porch.
