Whimsical. That was the goal. Working closely with the owner to choose colors, materials, textures, and custom made accents were critical in creating this one-of-a-kind eclectic sunroom retreat.
There was a deck on the back of the home which was seldom used due to mosquito and harsh afternoon sun. Even worse, it was built with a step down to a lower platform right in the middle, limiting the size of table possible and creating an awkward space for entertaining.
Upon looking at many different construction styles, it was agreed that an timber-frame structure with exposed wood ceiling was perfect! From there the custom details evolved to include full-height glass walls. LED up-lighting of the wood ceiling, custom built steel collar-ties with custom integrated LED down-lighting. To maximize year-round usability of the room, we insulated the room and installed an on-demand heating and cooling unit.
Just a step out onto the attached deck is a hot-tub ready for your relaxation.

Small details go a long way. The bronze LED recessed lights blend nicely into he natural cedar ceiling, and the minka-aire ceiling fan complements the room while keeping it cool.
