Hey bjc,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

Since there are too many variables here, such as lack of additional measurements and various materials, getting a materials quote here wouldn't be the best option for you.

However, if you come into your local Home Depot store and speak to a Pro Desk and Building Materials associate(s), she or he can get you specific pricing. 

Choosing better wood and fasteners, for example, can mean thousands of dollars in difference to your budget....this is why its really important to view the materials and get more specific measurements (roof height, etc.) before committing to the build.

Also, your local area may require you to have a building permit for your new porch, so call  your local municipality or county building extension to get the job done safely and correctly.

Let us know if you have any additional questions,
