Covering a second story deck w/ a Greenhouse/sunroom

I am attempting to cover a 16'x19' foot deck with a lean-to greenhouse/sunroom. The deck is located at the back of my high-ranch off the second floor kitchen. I would like to know where I can find plans and/or has anyone tackled this kind of project. I live in Rockland County approx. 30 miles outside New York City and I think the frostline is 42-48". Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What sort of a snow load do you have to meet? 30#? 40#? That will be the difficult part, especially with a projection of 16'. It will probably require a beam at mid- span, and possibly a post in the center of that beam. You'll have to jump through quite a few hoops at the bldg. dept. to get the plans approved, but it can be done.
