Roofing an outside bar

The house we just purchased has a nice bar on it with a rotted wood roof. Basicaly it is a 8x9 concrete slab with a hand built call with shelves and a bar top at one end. The roof is slanted with 2x4 beams that have since rotted. We ripped them down and are thinking of replacing them. I was thinking of putting the same roof style back up. The top was covered with the rippled hard plastic, but the underside (bar ceiling) was exposed, and has attracted a lot of carpenter bees. Is there any type of ceiling cover that I could put over the beams on the underside so the beams will not be exposed and maybe help to prevent bees? I was thinking of plywood sheets, but not sure if they would hold.

Also what can I treat it with the prevent the bees from nesting?

You could cover it with Luan plywood sheets(about 1/8" thickness) used for exterior,primed and painted. Or a vinyl soffit. In the siding section, but you would need a siding brake. I think your best bet is to go with the Luan plywood, maybe a couple of vents along the way.Hope this helps!!
