I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice, but the first thing that comes to mind is your joists should return back into the house twice as far as the outside overhang, if I recall correctly. That will limit the size of your porch.....
Probably should have qualified that 2 to 1 with, "at least". (Just getting the ball rolling.)
