Could you be more specific? What are you having trouble with?


 


A search here on the forum will find info. A visit to the Chief YouTube channel will show a video.


 


Check some of the links posted below, and post back if you still need help.

I'm using Home Designer Pro 2016.  I've seen the video on a screen porch, but that has exterior walls and a roof of conventional framing.  The screen room is an aluminum frame with only screen in large panels for the sides and roof.  They aren't windows per se. Walls and windows won't do it, railings don't do it. Is this a custom CAD construction?

Use a soffit -- change the thickness to 1/16", and the material to screen. Use a sloped soffit for the roof parts.

All the exposed rafters and beams shown here are soffits. They can be glass for showers, and used for many things.
