Would you have a room OVER a screened in porch?

We're looking at adding a second story over a part of our house that is only one story right now. To get the layout that I want, I would need to extend the top room out over what will be a screened in porch. The room would sit over about 8' of a 12' porch. The other 7' of the added room will be over an interior room.

Is this going to create major obstacles to maintaining a consistent comfortable temperature in that room? We are looking at radiant heat in the floors for the addition, in case that matters. Can the right insulation do the trick? We are in Seattle - so temps aren't generally frigid or scorching (though there is ice on my driveway right now!).

Thanks!

Juli
