2nd Story Deck and Roof

We tore down our old 2nd story deck and would like some input on how we could put a roof on top of our new deck. We don't think we are going to be able to afford the roof right now but I want to make sure we prep the deck/footers correctly to hold the roof when we add it.

The new deck will be 20 ft wide by 16.

I wanted to put a "shed roof" on but there is not enough slope from the short side of the house to extend out 16 ft with the correct pitch.

Any ideas on how we can add a roof to this ? I've had a few contractors look at it and just throw enormous price's (20+K) on it and not provide any detail of how they would actually add the roof. Pic attached.

Thanks in advance for any help provided!!!

Put a gable roof on or build up the short side to the height you need for the pitch you need.
