On November 1st we were awarded the NARI Contractor of the Year Award in the category of Residential Interior- $75,000 & under for our Craftsman Sunroom Remodel! We love working with homeowners that allow us to do fun projects like this one!
These homeowner’s had an unusable room found in many homes- a 3-season front porch. The room was uncomfortable most months of the year due to improper heating and cooling. In addition, a wall with french doors divided the porch from the living room. This created a dark, uninviting space in an otherwise charming living room. The homeowners loved the natural light that came into the porch, but they wanted to be able to use the room year- round as a sunroom. Another top priority of these homeowners was to incorporate the Craftsman-style woodwork and charm found throughout the rest of their home.
We ran into many challenges along the way including having to replace the existing site-built windows with Marvin casements in the existing masonry openings, cutting access through the concrete slab floor to run baseboard heat into the room, and matching the height of the new wood floor to the existing wood in the living room.
The finished product is a beautiful sunroom and reading room that the homeowners are now able to use year-round. We incorporated a custom-built room divider at the entry to the sunroom that gives the room a huge “wow-factor”. We also matched the new trim to the Craftsman-style trim found throughout the home, creating a space that looks original to the home.
This home was also featured in the 2017 NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes this spring. We had multiple people comment that they couldn’t tell what was new and what was original to the home. After showing them the before pictures, they realized the huge transformation!
Thank you to the sub-contractors who helped us on this Craftsman Sunroom project. Amazing rooms like this would not be possible without you!
