How will the room be used?

Identifying the main purpose of the room will give you some direction. A good way to begin the project is to sit down with your family and discuss what the addition will be used for, such as:

  • Plants and animals
  • Entertaining
  • Games/children's playroom
  • Reading/meditation/relaxation
  • Working out

Where will the sunroom be located?

Walk around your house to determine where you'd like the sunroom to be built. Consider the view you'll have and where the sun rises and sets. Think about these options:

  • building a sunroom on top of an existing deck or patio
  • adding a sunroom under an existing porch roof
  • turning an existing room into a sunroom
  • creating an entirely new space

Who will build your sunroom?

  • design a room to complement your home's architecture
  • visit your home so they can suggest location, type of room, etc
