Halacha - maakeh -- bracha
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: If you have full ownership of the porch, it seems you would say a beracha. The Mabit asked the Beis Yosef about a situation where one person owned the house and roof where a second had rights to limited use of the roof. The Beis Yosef seemed uncertain if the ability to hang laundry was sufficient to obligate the non-owner in a maakeh, and the Poskim conclude in such a case not to say a beracha. However since you have full ownership of the roof, it would appear there should be no doubt regarding your obligation.
