My house could do with a porch - something to keep the pushchair and outdoor shoes in. I have DIY experience and feel this is something I want to attempt myself. I'd like some comments on where/how to start and any advice for getting the work done. So, some details: - step down from front door to existing path: 6inches - desired dimensions: 1.5m (way from house) x 2m (along existing exterior wall including current front door) Does this sort of thing normally need planning permission? How big should the foundations be? That sort of stuff. Many thanks! Sean.
