Home Transformation: Changing a Three Season Room to a Four Season Room
Often, a homeowner will find that a current space in their home is not living up to its full potential, and will undergo a renovation project to remedy this. This can include the space not functioning as desired, the space feeling outdated, and so on. As a professional contractor, we strive to help our clients solve these problems, and in the most efficient and effective way possible. A project we recently wrapped up helps capture this, as we were tasked to change a three season room into a four season room, and integrate it with the rest of the home.
Our objective here was to allow this sunroom to be used year round, making it a four season room. The room's structure was to stay the same, but with new flooring, windows, trim, and so on. This space was closed off from the rest of the house by a door, and the idea was to remove these barriers and connect this to the rest of the home. However, the current mechanics of the home would have to change to accommodate this. The home’s existing systems would not be able to condition the extra cubic feet added by the sunroom's integration. So, we added in a ductless mini-split heating/cooling system to condition this space effectively. The door here was removed and the left behind space made larger to create a passageway into the home. Along with this, insulation was added with new flooring to increase energy efficiency, and new energy efficient windows. To find the appropriate windows, we had to review the insulation of the space and choose the windows that provided the desired insulation value. All of these factors contributed to maintaining a proper climate within this four season room, so that its integration with the rest of the home would be possible and viable.
Ensuring that this room was ready to be integrated with the rest of the home was not the only task we had. We also wanted to spruce up the space aesthetically. Some of these aesthetic changes included the new windows and flooring. We took out the old carpet that was here and replaced it with new vinyl flooring, placing the joints of the floor planks every sixteen inches to avoid a repetitive look. With the windows, we removed the old casing around them for a pleasing look, using a bullnose corner beam. This space previously consisted of a lot of materials, making it seem bulky. Overall, the room had sharp edges, such as the old window casings, that we wanted to fix. We also sanded the edges of the walls before painting them to give the finished product a clean look.
The changes we implemented not only allowed this room to transform into a space that could be used year-round, but also breathed new life into with aesthetic changes so the space could feel brand new.
