This would be going underneath a roof overhang from house. 2 posts would be needed for support. Material would be pressure treated pine. No railing needed.

A good rule of thumb is, the cost of labour should be relatively close to the price of material that has been bought at a big box store.

Off the top of my head I would charge around $1000.

I myself usually run by the square foot on a deck, 5.20 per square ft, + 50 each post, your looking at around 980-1050, taxes in.
