I decided on doing the porch. The support beams are made using chopsticks and since most Chinese restaurants give them out for free it was a good solution. First I used tacky-glue to glue the porch to the house, which you can see in the pics. I allowed it to was dry enough for to stay in place but pliable enough to let me raise it up to add the beams. I had to cut the floor of the porch a bit to fit is the door frame but that was fairly easy.
