Design for the porch of a wooden house

The porch of a private wooden house is a platform at the front door, to which the steps are attached. The number of steps depends on the elevation of the floor level in the house. In houses on the ground - it can be one step, and in houses with a basement floor - steps (see Stairs steps: the original design of the main entrance) and their number determines the height of the basement.

The porch becomes very popular in houses that are built on rough terrain and the level of the floor at the front door is raised to a certain height. Here, the determination of the number of steps is for reasons of safety and convenience, as in other ladders.

Making the porch is directly related to the architectural solution of the house. The staircase of a country house can be located frontally, on one or both sides. This location depends on the position of the plot where the house is located. Also, the appearance and entrance of the house affects the appearance of the porch and its position.

What to consider when choosing a porch design


  1. Choose the size of the porch area no less than 120-180 cm at the front to open the front door
  2. Consider opening door entry to the outside
  3. If the porch is located frontally, then the axis of the door shifts with respect to the axis of the steps.
  4. If the size of the site is large, the location of the steps does not matter

Platform flooring of the boards should not be done tightly to each other, so that rainwater leaves the site. Therefore, the staircase and the platform must be performed with a slight slope outward of 1-1.5 degrees. This is also important for winter, since frost can form and movement will not be safe.

If the design of the porch of a private house and the stairs has more than two steps, it is desirable to install a railing, the same railing can be used for the porch area.

Types of railing for the porch:

  1. Railings that enclose a horizontal platform
  2. Railing along the stairs to the porch
  3. The railing can be located on one or two sides of the steps. house porch design

In order to prevent moisture from rain and snow from reaching the site, a carport can be installed (see. Sheds over the porch). For its roof is better to choose the material that covered the roof of the house. The dimensions of the canopy are calculated on the basis of protecting the entire porch from moisture and wind. Very good option when the steps of the porch are protected.
