Need opinions, ideas for addition of small porch

Recently inherited the family home - a modest 3 bdr brick built in 1949.

One of many projects on the idea board is building a small 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 deck or screened porch off the bedroom that already has an outside entrance. The elevation to the door is a little less than 2'.

We have previously built a screened porch and 2 decks, so we know the basics.

This would be a simple project if not for (a) the house being brick veneer and thus not suitable for the attachment of a ledger board and (b) the existing brick steps. Because of these steps, we would only be able to sink three posts.

Is there another way to do this, must we remove the steps?

Any suggestions appreciated.I have attached an old picture of the area in question.
