Default gable porch addition

We are planning to replace an existing deck with a gable-roofed screened porch. The deck now extends 12' front the house, so we'll stay in that depth.
What width would make for the most efficient use of materials?
How wide is the screening available now?
Any advice or pitfalls to avoid?

I would think the screen is the last thing to worry about, tell us more about the porch and how you will be rebuilding it and do you need help with that?
