The existing Sun Porch and wrap-around deck spanned across the driveway, tottering on three posts and a beam. In the transformation from Sun Porch to Sunroom, a window bay was added in the front, replacing the narrow deck area. The support beam was relocated and strengthened by the addition of two sheer wall panels below. Sunlight pours into the bay windows and the new sliding glass door that accesses the remaining deck.
At the new stairway and alcove between the Sunroom and the Kitchen, we mixed stained trim with painted trim, to make a transition from the stained cabinetry of the Kitchen to the painted walls and trim of the Sunroom.
We opened the Kitchen up to the Sunroom beyond, allowing a connection between the cook and the family. We re-located, re-purposed and added cabinetry to transform the KItchen while keeping its craftsman character.
