Best Ways to Customise Your Enclosed Front Porch

Our custom approach allows you to add a variety of personal touches to your enclosed front porch. Are you enhancing the look of a sleek, modern exterior? Or perhaps you want to seamlessly match a heritage style for a classic home build? No matter the style, we can make it happen.

Customise your enclosed front porch by:

  • Choosing a unique frame type
  • Selecting your timber, either timeless Oak or gorgeous Douglas Fir
  • Tweaking the length of each post
  • Adding your own touch to the eaves, trusses, and beams
  • Tilting the roof pitch to your specifications

Rely on us to provide a high-quality and attractive enclosed front porch, work with us to design your own, or set up plans you already have – no matter your desired approach, we want to hear from you and make your enclosed front porch a reality. 

How Much Will My Enclosed Front Porch Cost?

The products we provide in our range of enclosed front porches are all unique, and each will need to be adjusted and built to fit the exact specifications of your project. Due to this, our prices will vary widely. The same can be said for all custom enclosed front porch designs, as the cost will hinge on each element you choose to add or take away from your bespoke build.
The best way to estimate the cost of your project, before embarking on the process, is to request a bespoke quote from us.

Will My Enclosed Front Porch Require Planning Permission?

Nothing takes the wind out of creative sails than planning permission and building regulations. Gaining them for building projects can be a real hassle, and incredibly long-winded. The good news is that all of our enclosed front porches are considered permitted developments. 

If you are designing your own enclosed front porch, it is important to consider the parameters of what the law considers permitted development and what it does not. Your enclosed front porch will not require planning permission if:

  1. Its total area is no more than three square metres
  2. Its height does not exceed three metres above ground level
  3. It stays at least two metres away from dwellinghouse and highway boundaries

For more information, we have a detailed guide to planning permission, covering the rules, how to apply for it, and whether to seek the help of a Planning Consultant. 

Benefits of Choosing Us for Your Enclosed Front Porch

When you choose Oak Frames Direct, you are choosing quality. We start by selecting the very best cuts of Quercus Robur and Quercus Petraea oak, which then go through intensive visual checks carried out by our trained graders – ensuring the very best timber for your enclosed front porch. Then we get to work cutting the materials with the help of our Hundegger CNC machine, a top-of-the-range piece of industrial equipment that guarantees clean cuts every time. 

Once everything has been made the pieces will go through yet another quality check before we sign off on the build and despatch it to your home. The complete process from design to delivery usually takes between 6 to 8 weeks, so you really will not have to wait long for your enclosed front porch.
