Like most homeowners today, our clients love to entertain family and friends in their home. But, their small cozy den didn’t provide enough space to gather for special occasions. Extending their living space with a new Sunroom Addition was their desire, which involved the removal of the den’s exterior wall and their existing deck.
We are thrilled to have received a 2016 NARI-Atlanta Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award for this project in the category of Residential Addition Under $100,000. This award was given by NARI Atlanta, the local chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. Read about our other NARI-Atlanta CotY Award winners here.
Removing the exterior wall required installing an engineer-approved 600lb. steel I-beam to span the opening and support the second story. The work progressed very carefully during the wall removal and beam installation, since it was taking place directly beneath a recently renovated upstairs master bath. Absolutely no movement of the upstairs level could be allowed in order to prevent damage to the master bath tile and the second floor. Our team accomplished this flawlessly.
Due to ample new windows and a French door to their new deck, natural light floods the sunroom and also brightens the den. Natural oak hardwood flooring installed in the sunroom ties into the existing flooring, creating continuity with the rest of the home.

Removing an existing door that led from the breakfast area to the original deck now offers convenient access from the breakfast area to the new sunroom, also. The project design opened the living space with improved traffic flow.
“The sunroom is an extension of our den and has plenty of space for seating and accommodating everyone,” our clients remarked. “Our favorite aspect is the openness because of the windows and French door. They bring the outside in.”
The beautiful open living space boasts a clean minimalistic look and style, with a seamless transition from the existing home through to the new sunroom.
Paint colors and white trim and molding are repeated in the kitchen, den and sunroom to unify the entire space. Yet, as our clients requested, the spacious floorplan was designed to create two distinctly individual spaces: the cozy den with a fireplace and the sunroom addition with a bright open feeling.
“Atlanta Design & Build was able to take our vision of what we wanted and turn it into a detailed design,” commented our clients, “The sunroom with French doors leading to a new beautiful deck could not have turned out better. We could not be happier with the results.”
