Other Important Info
The roof pitch of the Porch Kit is 3/12. Reference your buildings specifications wall height and the roof pitch to determine if the outer wall height will work. Keep in mind where you will be placing doors and what the swing will be. The Vermonter and Nantucket sheds have shorter wall heights so this Porch Kit would only be recommended for use as part of a child’s playhouse and not for adult use.
This Porch Kit has been designed for installation on the bearing wall of basic designs. If purchasing to install on a building not designed by Jamaica Cottage Shop, we recommend working with an experienced builder.
