Hi! We are wanting to Box in our front porch and make a den. Ideas?
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jul 06, 2018Great idea! First order of business is check local building codes and call your insurance agent. Then hire a contractor. Here is how!https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0242-hiring-contractorNow play around with design. Since you will be eliminating your "official" front door, you will need to add a new one if for no other reason than fire and safety regulations.Helpful Reply
