The deck is complete. The framing is complete. And the siding is complete (though this picture was actually taken before the siding was complete or the roof put on). We had gone back and forth on the style of the roof (as we did many aspects of this build). We considered a flat roof. A flat roof with a grade. An A-Line roof. All the different options come with the benefits and challenges. Ultimately, we chose a flat roof with a slight grade tilted towards the back to the water would run back and out of your yard. And when it came to materials we considered the usual suspects - plastic, metal, and wood. For materials, we chose corrugated plastic. It would not seal the heat in (which there is a lot of in Florida) but it would keep the rain out. And we chose white because otherwise the sun would stream right through and raise the temperature by 20 degrees. The roof went up fairly quickly and was very inexpensive. We purchased 6 panels that were 6 feet long to cover the roof and have a bit of overhang to make sure the rain stayed out. We have had a fair bit of rain and so far so good. Given the low cost of the materials, if we decide they are not holding up or we want to upgrade, we would not feel like we wasted money starting with the corrugated plastic roof.
