              Happy Mom:

              Do you have an agent who is in Shanghai? This fella woke me up and now I saw your question! Gosh!

              hahahahahaha

              The answer is YES!

              It is a good way to use the space if you have a private view AND if your neighbor will agree with you on the PERMIT application.

              Few points you should remember:

              * The new structure MUST be independent from the house in term of weight support; or else, must be planed by a structural engineer (P.E.).

              * Posts must be treated lumber of 6 x 6 minimum

              * Beams must be treated lumber of 4 x 8 minimum

              * Must use metal braces and long gavalized steel screws, bolts wherever applicable; tension washers must be used.

              * Balcony's floor should be treated lumber of 2 x 4 leaving 1/4 inch gap for proper drainage.

              ** Leavethe roof alone is the cheapest way to do it. But if you want to use the balcony also as the house roof, then build it as the roof first (plywood, impermeable sheet, then treated lumber). Don't forget the drainage issue; or else it will leak.

              Whatsoever you will do, you must have a permit; or else the property will lose its value real fast.

                That is a different design and if you look at the picture closely the balcony is "not on the roof".

                    The pic depicts the balcony IS the roof of that sun room. Thus it must be built as a flat roof; then fortify it for heavier usage.

                        Your choices are:

                        1) build one heavier flat roof for the use as a balcony

                        2) build a balcony with 1/4 inch gap and leave the flat roof as is

                        Thus, the material depends on what you choose first.

                            To prevent the water leaking is a very easy and cheap measure, if do it properly:

                            * above the plywood roof: one layer of impermeable sheet (sold in rolls, 3 ft. wide)

                            * above that sheet is anything which can take the weather.

                            If the flat roof has a proper pitch; then you won't have leaking issue.

                              can we buy this at Home Depot or Lowes? or have to be special order?
