You will need an architect -- probably an engineer -- to design the structure above and below.

who did you order the polygal from? was it easier to work with than wood? This IS great idea and it looks like it has sparked a trend!

We found a distributor somewhere around South Shore Boston -- don't remember the name. It was a difficult transaction because the material is sized metric, foreign even to them. It is totally different than wood -- panels about 4' x 20' in this case -- and translucent -- there is no comparison.

This cost about $30,000. Includes materials: reclaimed timber sawn to order, translucent roof panel system, screen system, hardware. Labor of carpenter for erection and screen installation, and a stone mason to set the bluestone floor. It does not include the concrete foundation walls and slab, painting, the bluestone material, or the mahogany slats on the back wall -- the foundation was earlier, part of the main house project, the rest DIY and salvaged materials.

how much noise when it rains?

Quite a bit, actually. Not unpleasant, for the most part -- quite the opposite.. It varies from a soft patter in a shower, to a drumming in a hard rain, to a dull roar in a real downpour.

Love this screened porch idea. What are the dimensions? What kind of flooring is used?

Thank you for your interest. The porch is built into a slope, so the back is a concrete retaining wall about 4-1/2 ft. high, covered with horizontal mahogany slats. The size is about 13'-6" x 17' overall. The floor is natural bluestone pavers set on a concrete slab.

The material is called "Polygal". It is a polycarbonite material supplied in long sheets of various widths. It is not a solid sheet but is hollow and fluted in the long direction. Available in different thicknesses and configurations with different properties of light transmittance. Ours is designed to reflect a good deal of near-perpendicular (mid-day) sun, but admit almost all light with lower angle of incidence. A wonderful product !

Like the idea of the 'lean to' roof for a porch too. But I would add a very large gutter and then bury the downspout out to the lake hill ...... Steep incline as not to capture snow
