This competition is for an addition to a 6-bedroom cottage constructed in the 19th century.
It is unheated and is inhabited only 4 or 5 months of the year. No air conditioning either although there is an overhead fan on the first and second floors. Evenings in August can be hot and humid, so it would be nice to expand from the south-facing bedrooms over the southern porch roof and construct a sleeping porch, screened-in and roofed of course, replacing at least one of the windows with a door.
The plan drawing image shows the second floor plan with the addition shown in a red outline. This is the area -on top of the southern porch roof- where I intend the addition to happen. However, I am open for any alternative design suggestion, too.
I have also uploaded many more photos in additional documents [(+) tab on top]. Here you will find a zip folder with many more close up interior and exterior photos.

Green approaches, and energy-efficient solutions are welcomed.
