Begin your design by measuring the space you will eventually attach. Define a budget so you can figure out if you want to use glass or a cheaper material such as screening. Plan to enclose a part of the porch with wooden framing and sidings to match your house if you wish. For example, you might want to design part of the area with a secure roof and side walls to protect media equipment, especially in rainy weather. Lay out a floor plan to allocate space for activities your family has and decide where chairs or furniture will go.

Review home design books and rebuilding magazines to choose the materials that you will use. Go over the cost of glass, metal framing and tile on the porch, for example, with experts at a home building store. Start with your ideal patio enclosures and then scale back to fit your budget. For example, the replacement screen at one end of the porch if you use all the glass will place your project over budget. Use wood trim work in your design that will complement the rest of your house. Sketch all the wood trim, strip and door framing exactly as it looks when your porch is finished.
