Adding a porch or canopy

 A porch can be a very useful addition to a house; even a canopy will offer a surprising amount of shelter while you fumble for your keys. A fully enclosed porch will stop all the heat escaping from the house on wintry days and can be a handy store for all those coats, galoshes and football boots that pile up in the hall. It’s an addition that usually doesn’t need planning permission though there are some exceptions.If you have a plain frontage and your house opens out pretty much onto the street, as in workers’ terraced houses from the turn of the century, you will probably only be able to consider a canopy mounted over the door. Look at other examples in the street or nearby and pick something that blends in and fits the period
