Conceptual Design of the Sunroom Addition

sunroom addition

This project was an existing house that had an exterior concrete slab as a patio. GMH By Design was hired to design an addition on to the back of their house which can be an inside / outside space.

This one hundred and fifty square foot addition acts as that space. The south wall of the space consists of doors which completely open up the wall to a wood deck.

The sunroom opens up the kitchen and breakfast nook to a space that is flooded with light.

The client utilizes this space particularly in the morning to drink their coffee in the bright morning light.

Empty nesters who had this house built back in the 1990’s. They were looking to add a small amount of inside space to benefit their quality of life.

sunroom addition – context

GMH By Design believes that a projects context is as important as any of the clients needs. This means each and every one of our projects takes the location of the project into consideration; local as well as the actual property itself.

sunroom addition – comfort

GMH By Design is all about the comfort of our clients with the final project. For most, a remodel, addition, or new building will be one of the most expensive purchases they make. In the case of The Retreat, the client wanted to double the size of the original cabin while at the same time maintaining the feel of a secluded cabin.

sunroom addition – retreat

The definition of retreat is a place of privacy or safety. The intent of GMH By Design when designing The Retreat was to provide just that a place for the client to rest, relax, and enjoy their privacy in a safe comfortable place.
