Or go for a lower pitch on the porch roof like these two...

​Or go for the standard porch instead. 

Consider adding an upstairs deck to your SweetCabin.

Close-in a LOT of the porch...

10' Porch 

Opt for an inset porch on the one-story... 

  Porches: A Necessary Luxury 

If we have time and lumber on the last day, we'd be happy to build you some porch steps for a reasonable fee. Priced on site. Just let us know if you're interested!

Consider a porch roof without the decking boards to use as a carport.

No porch looks good too!

     You figure up the size and model of your cabin, along with our standard porches, or decks, porch roofs, closed-in porches, etc. and give us a call. We'll be happy to get a quote figured for the cabin of your dreams! 

Soon enough you'll be kicking your feet up on your OWN porch at Mother Nature's doorstep, thinking "Home, SweetCabin, Home." Just give us a call to start the process!

     Here’s wishing you lots of high quality porch time at your SweetCabin in the not too distant future!

Or just close-in a little.

10' Porch 

8' Porch 

The pitch of the porch roof on the gable could be steep like these two...

Notice how a porch along the width stops short of the corner about 2' so the porch roof fits nicely inside the cabin roofline. 

       Amish building is simple and practical. In keeping with that spirit, and also in a real effort to keep your price down, we have been cautious about offering extras. We try to be accommodating, but “fancy” just isn’t part of our business plan.

       That said, there are a few things that bear mentioning about porches, an “extra” that most people can’t do without.

  • Porches are available at the customer’s choice in various sizes; our most popular being eight or ten feet wide and the full length of the cabin.
  • Get your porch up to 12' deep with the standard 8' sidewall downstairs or go up to 16' deep if you upgrade to a 10' sidewall.
  • Porch ceilings are enclosed, finished, and nicely trimmed as part of the deal.
  • T1-11 is installed to create a nice finished look overhead.
  • All trim work on the porches (and around the windows and doors) is done with the same high-quality Eastern White Pine boards as the siding
  • Porch floor joists, upper and lower porch posts, and decking boards are all treated lumber. 
  • Porch posts are 4x4" standard, upgrade to 6x6" posts for a small fee. 
  • The lower posts are considered part of the foundation, thus will be supplied by the customer (However, if it's only 3-4 block from the top of the porch pads to the top of the foundation, SweetCabins can supply the lower posts as a courtesy).
  • Typically we'll set the posts up on your concrete pads, but we can set the porch on another block wall or block piers. We just need to know what you're after before we draw up your foundation print. 
  • Customers may choose to have a porch on one, two, three, or four sides of their cabin.
  • Beautiful wraparound porches are available. Notice how we finish out the 90 degree turn with a 45 degree angle overhead and on the decking boards.
  • Create extra space with closed-in porches.
  • We can incorporate decks too, on the first OR second floor.
  • We’ll build porch steps, but they’re extra.
  • Consider only getting the porch roof without the decking boards to use as a patio, carport, lean-to, etc. 

BIG porch

We build in parts of OH, WV, & KY.

Occasionally customers choose to have blocks under the porches as well as under the cabin.
