shed with a porch
 
I'm trying to build a shed with a porch... found out this morning the porch is part of the overall floor and I am limited to 160 sq feet... anyway... Is a 4 foot wide porch wide enough??? If i want it wider, I may have to shorten the shed part, already that is 8 feet wide... any thoughts

Time for a fresh piece of paper and a sharp pencil.
Draw what YOU want... then build that.

Why the porch?
Never once have I ever seen a shed or garage that had to much room.
Use the footage to make the shed bigger, you will not regret it.

Depends on what you want to use the shed and its porch for.

What if you made the porch dis-connected? And/Or add the porch a bit later?

My guess is the 160sf is the min. before a permit is required. anything bigger and a trip to city hall is in order

Good catch.
OP: build your 8x20' shed.
At some point in the future build a freestanding deck nearby to sip your beer on.
