French Door Contruction

I am interested in building a SUN ROOM ON MY DECK. I was thinking that a sunroom is just a series windows with a roof, so would it be possible to buy 6ft french doors and use them as the walls. For instance, take 2 - 6ft french walls for the side walls and then 3 for the front walls, with a 1 ft space between each series of doors for mounting the doors and such. I think this would work and look really nice. Any ideas would be appreciated. I could build a 12x18' room a lot cheaper than one of those kits.

Where are you at? Snow load? Wind load? Siesmic zone? What are you thinking of for a roof for this room? What will you be using for headers over the doors? How high off of the ground is the deck? Will it support a room on it? How big are the footings under the deck?
