Depends if you believe that bloke off the news who knocked down the one he'd just built for that woman who didn't pay him.

Umm not really sure

Are they part of permitted development rights?

I would love to see some on uk houses and how to decorate them.

Do you mean the plastic ones that look like tiny conservatories? They're about 3-4k

The wooden porch things around the house like Americans have? No clue

I've just had this one put in as part of other works so no specific price but knowing how long it took and approx labour / material rates, I would say around £2750 (we're in W Sussex):

- Base / blockwork / paving - £750
- Oak Frame (he cut and planed it from sawn green oak) - £1500
- Roof - £500

We had a 3m x 1m brick porch built, with a sloping roof and window. We supplied the new front door ourselves. It was built on the footprint of the old one and cost about £2.5k iirc.

loumate666 that looks great. I want exactly the same thing for our house in West Sussex - I don't suppose you would PM me his details....

And as far as I know, 3m x 1m was the biggest we could get under permitted development but don't quote me on that.....

I am thinking of a vestibule type of porch like loumate666 has and also the American style longer porch where you can sit.
I would be grateful for any ideas or pictures people have of these in the uk.
Loumate666 is really classy. Thanks for posting the picture.
