I had an idea to covert our porch into a temporary sunroom by screening it. Can you make roman shades with screen material to raise and lower? Anyone have any ideas? I can't afford to pay to screen it in.

I don't know about shades but I once lived in an apartment that had screen stretched across the windows & stapled in place. There were lattice strips nailed over to hide the connection that were painted to match the window. None of those items should be too expensive & it looked great!
Why don't you just get the bamboo or vinyl roll up shades that attach to the top part of your porch with hooks? You can raise or lower them with the sun and they give you privacy. I've never seen screening done this way, but maybe they are available too and you could just tack them when they are fully opened if you want to keep out the bugs.
