The clients had only recently moved into their home and quickly discovered that their existing deck was often unusable because of the direct mid-day to late-afternoon sun. They also wanted a space that they could use in cooler temperatures, and yet still feel like they were closer to the outdoors. The results provided an attractive, functional, energy efficient sunroom and a lovely deck.
Eby Exteriors designed and built a new 16X14 (app) sunroom to replace the area where the existing deck stood. We then added a new, smaller deck to the northeast side of the new sunroom, which created a nice “sunblock” and made the new deck much more usable than the old one. We added a vaulted ceiling to give a feel of openness to the new sunroom as well. Because of the clients desire to use the sunroom throughout the year, we used a significant amount of cellulose insulation in the floor, walls, and ceiling of the sunroom. In order to keep the budget in check, we did not add the new room to the existing HVAC system. However, the homeowners planned to add heat with an electric space heater as needed. Also, with the amount of insulation the room has the ability for the room to remain cool, even in hot, sunny, conditions.
For the foundation we used Techno Metal Helical Posts. These can be installed with do digging which allows them to be installed quickly and with little to no disturbance to the lawn and landscaping. We covered the lower side of the room’s exterior with a PVC lattice
We are 100% satisfied with every aspect of the project. I am retired and was on site every day, and as my wife will attest, I obsess over every small detail. Every concern, and there were very few, was immediately addressed to my satisfaction. The finished product exceeded our expectations. Rich Hansen – homeowner
