    How to Build a Porch – Bob Vila - October 28, 2019 by admin

    A porch is simply a deck with a roof on it, right?Not quite. While some porches may be as simple as that, many are more similar to an indoor room that is missing windows and walls.

    Porches typically have more finished flooring than decks. And porch ceilings, while often made of wood, also have a finished look. In fact, just about every aspect of a porch is more finished than its cousin, the deck.

    Related: 10 Inventive Ideas for a Perfect Porch

    For instance, a porchs supporting posts are structural as well as decorative. These posts can be columns or boxed-in 4 x 4s with bases and capitals fashioned from molding. Balustrades and knee walls are also porch design mainstays, and these are typically finished with paint, shingles, or stucco.

    Another distinction between porches and decks: You can furnish a porch with pieces that wouldnt stand up to a direct assault from the elements. Wooden tables and chairs, wicker (the real stuff), and upholstered furniture will all fare better on a porch than they would on a deck.

    Choosing the LocationPorches are wonderful, so long as they do not cause problems with the rest of the house. The biggest issue homeowners run into when considering a porch addition is related to daylight. A back porch may significantly reduce daylight in the kitchen, or a front porch could cut off daylight to the living room. Take pains to ensure that adding a porch will not darken a portion of the existing house.

    Building the PorchPorches may be built in a wide variety of ways. Let the architecture of your home be your guide. If your house relates to a historical period, study examples of porch styles that were built during that time. You can do this by looking at actual houses or by researching in old magazines and architectural history books.

    Foundations: Some porches are built upon slabs over compacted gravel. The finished floor can be stone, brick, or tile. Other porches are wood-framed and supported by piers and beams. With the latter, the floorboards are typically narrow tongue-and-groove planks that look more like interior strip floors than decking. No matter which type of flooring you choose, the pitch or slope of the floor should run away from the house so that windblown rain and snowmelt can drain before causing damage.

    Stairs: Porch stairs can be built with concrete block and veneered with stone or brick, or they can be built of wood. Unlike deck steps, they often have bull nose treads and risers.

    Skirting: The space around the porch should be protected with sturdy lattice skirting, or else critters will be vying to dig their burrows in the nice, dry place youve created. Include an access door so you can get inside as needed.

    Balustrades: Balustrades, or railings, should be designed to match the style of the house. (Dont use turned balusters on a 1960s ranch!) Solid knee walls may also be used, and these should also be finished to match the house. For example, if the house is sided with clapboard, so should the knee wall.

    Columns: On the right porch, columns can look very graceful. Be careful with proportions, though. Too narrow and the porch will look insubstantial. Too wide and the porch will look pretentious. Column bases made of wood should be raised slightly off the floor to prevent rot. (For the same reason, column shafts should be ventilated at top and bottom.) Pressure-treated posts clad with PVC boards and moldings are an alternative.

    Roofs: Porch roofs, whether shed or gable-style, usually have a shallow slope. This is because they attach to the house at the top of the first floor (or maybe a bit higher on a two-story home), and because the porch eave must allow for adequate headroom. The exception, of course, is when the porch is integrated into the house design from the start, in which case there is often living space above the porch.

    A porch is a wonderful place to spend time. Just be sure to spend a little extra time designing and planning for it, before you begin construction.

    Porch on farmhouse with gray rocking chairs and bright red door designed by chango & co.

    This is a highly sophisticated porch design with cane furniture and traces of draping greenery all around. A white and brown color theme gives it a very exclusive look.

    This is quite a simple porch with a plain ceiling, brick walls, and a white railing and stairs. The stairs lead into a beautiful garden, making it look very stunning.

    The porch of this house has a white stairway with a bricked outer wall and two tiny pillars with flowers on the top.

    This is an example of a very simple porch with two chairs at the entrance, flower wreaths on both sides and rugs and mats on the floor.

    If you are looking for an almost ostentatious porch, this is the one for you. It has a classic white theme throughout, with colored chairs and fancy flowers on a glass top table.

    Quite simple yet extravagant with the addition of the beautiful blossoming flowers right next to the stairs. It also has a simple white railing and stairs that lead towards the house.

    Stunning, to say the least, this porch design is everything pretty. With wooden flooring, a gorgeous teal-blue railing and antique furniture, it looks out into a beautiful garden, making it all the more eye-catching.

    With colored floor and stairs, wooden chairs, and huge dangling flower pots, this is quite an exquisite yet simple porch design.

    This design sports a very vintage, Victorian-era look with its antique chair designs, pillars in the front and ash-colored walls around.

    Truly picturesque at its best, this design is an absolute feast for the eyes. With gorgeous dangling flowers, plants in the front and stark white railing, it makes a beautiful porch.

    This is a very regal-looking porch with classic white railings, dark brown flooring, white walls, and white framed windows with black slabs on the side.

    Cute and funky best describes this porch with really pretty small wooden chairs, brown railing and two adorable plants on either side of the stairs. The zigzag design at the bottom makes it even more attractive.

    This is simply lavish, with a proper seating area containing cushions, pillars all around, and hanging plant-pots, all of it gives it a very grand look. The addition of squared flooring also furthers the whole look.

    With white chairs, white fans, white railing, and windows, this design is simple but unique. Sporting a wooden look otherwise, the combination of white with brown makes it look very appealing

    This porch looks like it has come right out of a movie. White ceiling, railings, and blackish cane chairs give it a very contemporary touch. The addition of stunning hanging flower pots adds to the beauty of it as the porch leads into a beautiful garden.

    This design takes a twist on porches with the addition of a delicate porch swing, giving it a super funky yet simple look. With nothing else in the picture other than the swing, a white railing, and a stunning outdoor view, it is absolutely gorgeous.

    With an ideal combination of bricked wall, wooden ceiling and railing, this porch gives summer feels as the open space allows in the gleaming sunlight.

Unlike many porches, it is closed off from all sides and has a fan instead for ventilation purposes.

    Zillow DigsTM

    Studio Arte

    The word majestic says it all about this porch. It is huge, with a designed wooden ceiling, fancy windows with a unique design, an elaborate seating affair and a pool right in the front. It is like a dream porch for every homeowner who wishes to have a beautiful porch.

    Yet another grand looking porch. This one has a simple interior although with a beautiful view of lush green grass, flowers and trees all around. It puts a major focus on the scenery around than the interior of the porch itself.

    If sophistication had an image, it would probably be in the form of the picture of this porch. It is a classic white porch, with an extensive seating arrangement, large windows that allow proper outdoor views and ash-grey flooring, adding to the elegance of it.

    Simply put, this design is almost like summer in a single picture. Wooden flooring, a rocking chair at one end and colorful seating chairs at the other, a lot of windows at the back with a view thats looking out in the picturesque garden, it is nothing short of enchanting.

    Simplicity seems to be the main focus of this porch with white chairs, wooden flooring, pale yellow painted walls, and small planters tucked away in a corner.

    Zillow DigsTM

    This is one of the funkier and most chic porch design and is full of colors, too. Apart from typical white pillars and wooden vinyl flooring, this porch has taken things up a notch with parrot green walls, dark green on the top and a touch of striking pink at the bottom of the pillar. It is small and compact for sure but is definitely stylish and unique.

    Zillow DigsTM

    Sporting a super wooden and a cave-like look, this design is fully centered on the whole wood and brick combination. With lantern-like lights, brick walls at the bottom of the pillars and fully wooden ceiling, it is very different and a little eerie, too.

    Zillow DigsTM

    This looks more like a fancy veranda with a fan, a grand seating affair, curtains all around and wooden flooring. It is also super lavish and contemporary; making it look like it came right out of an interior magazine.

    Zillow DigsTM

    This has to be one of the prettiest looking porches with its small white chairs, dark blue cushions, a lot of tiny planters and white railing. The dazzling sunlight coming in makes the porch look heavenly.

    Zillow DigsTM

    Looking more like the entrance outside a hut at the beach, this porch is just fantastic. Sporting a blue color theme and a comfortable white relaxing swing, along with a fancy relaxing chair, it is just magnificent.

    Zillow DigsTM

    This porch makes use of a wide open space and has only two seating chairs, which make it look very simple and spacious. There are tall pillars attached to the railing in the front, offering a gorgeous view of the outdoor nature.

    Zillow DigsTM

    This porch design is crazy good, to say the least. It is definitely one of the most unique styles and designs with extensive protruding woodwork at the back, wooden flooring, wooden ceiling and similar kind of railings. It is easily one of the most different and exclusive looking porch ever designed.

    Having established its status in the sports-car hall of fame with the legendary 911, Porsche also makes some of the best SUVs to be had. The Macan is a realistic choice as a daily driver, offering the performance of a sports car with the utility of an SUV. We think it's the best compact-luxury SUV on the market, which is why we named it to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list for 2019. Looking for more room and performance? Then check out the spicy Cayenne; it's one of our favorite mid-size crossovers and an Editors' Choice for 2019. Porsche realizes that there are some people out there (count us among them) who would rather tear around a racetrack than play a round of golf, and for those folks there are the 911 GT3 and the (bonkers) GT3 RS and the 911 GT2 RS (super bonkers). Last but certainly not least, there's the fantastic 718 Boxster convertible and the 718 Cayman coupe: They both made our 10Best Cars list for 2019 yet again.

    Porches Pottery - October 12, 2019 by admin

    Since 1968, Porches Pottery has become a unique and famous institution in what is now a well-loved corner of Europe the ancient kingdom of the Algarve, Portugals southernmost province.

    This working pottery creates the most distinctive ceramics to be found in Algarve, and began as the idealistic dream of two artists, Patrick Swift and Lima de Freitas, one Irish and the other Portuguese. The two were determined to demonstrate that old crafts, and artistic traditions, need not be lost to the modern plastic age.

    That was fifty years ago now, and Porches Pottery has proved that it is indeed possible for hand crafted works to survive on their own merit. To this day, many of the artisans that Patrick Swift taught are here continuing a tradition that is thousands of years in the making.

    At Porches Pottery you can see these artisans at work, acquire a truly unique souvenir of Algarve, and enjoy a light lunch in our Bar Bacchus caf.

    Throughout the year, Porches Pottery is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 until 18:00, and on Saturdays from 10:00 until 14:00.

    Decks, Porches, & Swimming Pools – Welcome to - October 12, 2019 by admin

    Decks and porches are raised floors that are level with or below the first story of a house, supported by a structural frame and without a roof. The difference between them is that a porch provides access to a building's primary entrance. NYC Building Code 3300 governs construction safety and applies to decks and porches. If either is built with a roof, the structure may then be considered an additional room and different zoning rules and NYC Construction Codes provisions could apply. Water can add substantial weight, so never place any pool on a deck or porch, unless it has been structurally engineered to support the extra load.

    Construction may only begin after the Department approves construction plans and issues permits for a deck or porch. Only an NYS licensed professional engineer (PE) or registered architect (RA) may design them.

    All pools installed in New York City must follow the City's safety and quality-of-life standards. The Construction Codes specifically 3109 of the NYC Building Code outline the construction requirements. Other City agencies may also regulate pools depending upon, for example, the property's location, landmark status or zoning.

    The Department requires work permits to install a pool for any building or property. However, there are limited exceptions, such as for some above-ground pools and shallow wading pools, among others. To determine if a proposed pool must have a work permit, speak with a P.E. or R.A. or contact a Department borough office manager.

    Once the Department has issued the permit, a contractor licensed by the Department of Consumer Affairs or the homeowner may perform the work. Contractors must meet the Department's and New York State Workers' Compensation Board's insurance requirements. Homeowners who construct their own pools must receive a waiver of the insurance requirements from the borough commissioner where the property is located before beginning work.

    NYC Building Code 3109.3 3109.5.4.7 outline the technical requirements to construct pools, including:
