Adding a Porch with Concrete Foundation
We are ready to form a 3’x7′ concrete porch in front of main entrance of a new house in zone 6, and are reading/getting contradictory opinions whether to attach it or not to the house foundation…
The porch slab will be on an inside corner. It will have a 8×8 post (and beam) supporting the single-slope roof overhang, that is 5′ at this point.
