Click on the Home > Decks and Porches link under your question, and scan through for prior questions and responses on screened in porches - there have been several in the past year or so, with typical cost info.

Your quote is for $226/SF - yeah, that sounds high, as normally you could do an entire nicely finished to higher end addition for that square footage cost - screened porches more commonly run in the $40-60/SF range for a typical bayou type deck with full screening and maybe one porch light, to more in the $50-70 range for an enclosed porch with flooring and overhead ceiling (not just bare roof rafters), to $70-100 range for the decorator type "sunroom" like screened porches which are fully finished inside - and of course on up for decorator designs and such.

Still- $38,000 - for that price you could be getting a Sunroom. When I first saw your price I was thinking you were talking a full house-width enclosed and finished screened porch - then I saw it is only 12x14. I would say get 2-3 more bids.
