That's actually not a window. Only the skylights are glass. This is a screen porch.

They are custom wood doors with aluminum-frame screen panels. The doors were manufactured by a local millworker and the screens were fabricated on site by the project's carpenter.

Was the choice of fabric on the furniture chosen for the striping to further the height effect of the room or rather it was chosen bc of color, simplicity?

Thanks for your interest. The homeowners chose the sofa fabric based on color and the desire for a strong geometry, but accentuating the height was not a factor. It works perfectly in the space.

What is the room that leads into the sunroom? - We are planning on renovating our house and we would like to include the sunroom but it would then be off the dinning room. It appears the way you have this set up, it could work.

Do you have a picture from the dinning room leading into the sunroom? Also are those French doors leading into sunroom? This is going to be our set up exactly and would love to see more pics.

Sorry, no interior shots looking out. Yes, those are the pre-existing exterior patio doors.

Height of the ceiling - What is the highest pitch of the roof and what is the lowest? I have a room the same dimension 12x18 and the architect wants to do two pitches instead of one because he thought the room is too long, but looks good from your picture. Thanks!

The roof pitch is 6:12. The interior heights are 8'-6" at the eave and 12'-0" at the ridge.

Three months to develop the design, produce construction drawings, and obtain the building permit. Another three months for construction. Six months total.

It works very well in terms of throwing heat out into the space. I do not have a separate cost independent of the rest of the project.

I have a Heat N' Glo 6000CLX propane fireplace which the build inspector likes better than a masonry fireplace on an existing deck. The next improvement will be radiant tile flooring by SunTouch Floor Warming Systems.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to 11 Elements of the Perfect Sunroom
3. Environmental controls. Most sunrooms are built without heating and air conditioning systems. But it's still nice to be able to cool down with a ceiling fan if the air gets too stifling, and to warm up with a fireplace on chilly nights.
