Making the front porch part of the interior?

Hi all,

I'm thinking about taking my front porch and want to make it part of the interior. Most of the time I see this done, the front porch is basically another room stuck onto the front of the house (see photo below).

In my case, I would ideally like to:

- make the front of my porch the front door.

- put up walls on all sides of the porch

- take down the existing wall/door of the current front of my house.

Any thoughts/considerations on this?

A couple of notes:

- I live in Canada so cold weather is a factor

-My house is a duplex

Thanks in advance!
