Depending on where you intend to put your shed, it might be a good idea to add a porch to it. If your structure will accent your landscape then this added feature can not only be an attractive addition but a functional one as well. All you need is a set of storage shed plans with a porch and you are good to go.
I have built a few sheds in my day and the one thing I always try to do is make every square foot of the structure functional. A porch can not only give you a place to sit but it could act as a work station as well. And porches just look nice so the added value for the cost is worth it.
I recently built a potting shed for my wife and the porch gave her a place to do her magic with flowers out of the hot sun. The structure had working space inside for inclement weather but having the overhang blocked the sun so she could be outside and not get over heated.
If you get a good set of shed plans it will be easy to add the porch during construction and the overall cost of the project will only go up a little. I always double up on the construction in order to add a porch swing should I want to at a later date.
Having a porch on your shed gives it depth and allows the building to become a part of the landscape instead of an unwelcome eye sore. Building one is not complicated but you do need proper blueprints to get the angles and support right or your roof could collapse on you so be careful. Do not try and design this aspect of the shed yourself.
I highly recommend this addition to add a sense of style and functionality to your outdoor project, you will be so glad that you did… and so will your wife if she is anything like mine!
