This beauty is considered a sunroom or three season room because of all the windows and the fact that it does not have air conditioning or heat. It is essentially a screened porch with tons of windows.
According to Architectural Digest Magazine, A stylish sunroom has the ability to change a home’s entire atmosphere. It acts as an extension of the outdoors, providing a surplus of natural light and greenery, while also creating a comfortable space to relax. If you are renovating, there are various kinds of sunrooms to consider, from greenhouses to enclosed porches, all requiring a similar formula: panoramic views, fantastic lighting, and casual but elegant interiors. An indoor-outdoor room is a creative place to host guests and an ideal spot to commune with nature year round, regardless of the weather or climate.
A comfortable size
The decking for this project is an Ipe style composite and the porch was built in an L shape: 12 feet out and 20 feet across with a 10×10 foot area off the breakfast nook, which was an existing structure. There is no insulation and screening was added under the deck to prevent insects from entering the space.
Coastal ceiling, windows and trim
The attractive ceiling is a wood tongue and groove construction in an Auburn stain. This is one of our signature Coastal style features.
A black aluminum rail goes around the deck. The window choice here is called EZE Breeze, which is a four-track system. Each window has four sections and they conveniently telescope on top of each other. You can open one, two or three windows so they are all in the fourth section.
The skirt around the bottom of the deck is called a Carolina trim, which is a white vinyl horizontal trim used on many of the coastal beach houses in the Carolinas.
Useful curb appeal
A sunroom like this is a quick and effective way to get more use out of your deck, without investing in a new room with a costly HVAC system. Our Coastal style construction will add some nice curb appeal to your home, in addition to the practical day to day functionality.
