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.
