Sounds like you need some 2 x 2 aluminum posts and some 1 x 2 open back to go around the sides. Are you capable of rolling in the screen yourself or do you want to purchase it already screened ?

I've built numerous screened porches for clients over the years. Anything from very fancy with loads of custom wood work, to aluminum kit rooms from Harvey Industries. One of the most unique and inexpensive was one we did for a client who had a very limited budget. We framed the openings with P.T. posts and in the space between we used a wooden storm door, minus the hinge and latch. It worked great. The bottom of the doors formed a lower wall or kick panel and the upper section was, of coures screened. They looked great, were a piece of cake to install, and cost around $30.00 per section.
