A little over a year ago, the hubby and I started a project to put a covered deck onto the back of our home. Like so many projects, it spiraled a bit out of control. What started as a deck turned into a full blown home addition. The process was stressful and exhausting at times but as we've FINALLY been able to enjoy the space, we know it was all worth it! We love our new deck Smiley.

Other than the decision making, I can't take any credit for this work. We had a great contractor that did all of the hard parts. If we had attempted to participate in any of the construction work, this project wouldn't have made it past the whole-in-the-ground phase Smiley.







Deciding the paint colors (particularly what to do with my favorite part of the room, the ceiling) was so hard!! We actually ended up painting it a different color to begin with and redoing the whole thing Smiley.



And here are some of the before and in-progress pictures! Gosh, I almost forgot what a mess this was!! Cheesy

This is an awesome home addition! I used to design sunrooms like this, and I dream of building my own one day!! I really love the exposed roof trusses and the built in bar shelving. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, all!! We have really been enjoying the room. When we were in the midst of construction and there was dust everywhere and guys roaming through the house and constant noise, I just kept thinking about sitting in the room on a Sunday morning, sipping my coffee and reading a magazine - it was my happy place in the chaos. And now I can really do it!!

Since this picture, we have added window coverings so our neighbors don't get as much of a show Wink.

PB! I wish I had known about your sunroom design work before - I would have been hitting you up for constant advice!!
