Porches – An American Tradition
Porches are an American tradition. Many of us were practically raised on a front porch, I know I sure was! It was our family’s gathering place – the place we received life lessons, learned about our ancestors, and shared our dreams. I couldn’t imagine growing up without my grandparents porch!
Aside from being a great gathering place for family and neighbors, porches have many other advantages – extended living space and energy savings are two of the best.
I think every home needs a porch, especially manufactured homes. Add a covered porch to a factory built home and you can make it look just like a traditional site-built home (if that’s what you want). It’s a great way to add depth and dimension to a house which is the most important element in curb appeal.
Adding a Porch to a Manufactured Home
Building a porch or deck onto a manufactured home is a bit easier than building onto a site built house. Since most areas don’t allow a true attachment to a manufactured home the building aspect is just a tad bit easier – you won’t have to modify the home much. The porch and roof will simply ‘butt against’ the home instead of being attached via framing. You should definitely check your local code before building!
