A while back, I tore down my ugly old porch that was behind my house and had a carpenter build me a new one. He did the footings, deck part, walls, and the roof, while I finished up with the screen, the door (including framing), and the trim. I also ran some electrical and installed lighting. It was a big job and depending on how handy and patient you are (and how much time you have), you may be able to tackle something like this yourself. You know, sort of like a really big DIY project. In the following posts, I move through the entire process of building the porch, step by step. Take a look at the steps and then ask if you've got any questions. I'd be happy to help.
