Year-round Sunroom by Patio Enclosures Offers Expanded Living Space
Mr. and Mrs. C. purchased a home that had an existing screen porch with an old composite floor. Unable to use it much of the year, even in Kentucky, they wanted to convert it into year-round living space. They also wanted it to better connect with the existing deck and didn’t like the small door on the front wall.
Though they wanted to expand their living space, they enjoyed the relaxing sound of the water feature in their garden and they were afraid they wouldn’t be able to hear it anymore. To address their concerns and come up with a design that worked, the couple hired Patio Enclosures® of Louisville. After meeting with Pat Stoehr for an in-home design consultation, they were confident their needs could be met.
The Patio Enclosures team soon got to work removing the old screens and framing. They then enlarged the openings by installing new headers. Large rolling windows with screens were installed to open up the view but still allow them to enjoy spring breezes and to hear the sound of their water feature. And when closed during the colder months, the double-pane insulated glass and the advanced weatherlock with interlock sash at the meeting rails keeps the room warm and cozy.
The small door on the front wall was eliminated and a large rolling door and screen was installed on the side to better connect to their deck. New insulation was blown into their existing roof structure and insulation was also added to the existing knee wall. As a finishing touch, new beadboard was put onto the knee wall to match the ceiling. The addition of a heating and air conditioning unit in the knee wall completed the year-round transformation.
The couple can now enjoy their backyard any time of the year — and they are loving it.
