Make Room for the Sun

Since we’ve been on such a roll lately of showing ya’ll the home additions we’ve done, here’s another: a porch that grew big enough to become a sunroom too.

Before that could happen, we poured a concrete cap on the existing porch and added some new concrete as well, so the homeowners would still have some porch space after the addition was built:

As you can see, the new sunroom takes up all the original porch width:

We installed Alside® vinyl siding on the exterior walls of the addition:

The doors were Masonite® fiberglass, both the exterior door…

…and the French doors leading into the rest of the house:

Using Minwax® stain and Helmsman® polyurethane, we stained and varnished both the doors and the wooden trim surrounding the doors and the WeatherBarr® vinyl windows:

The drywall interior walls were covered in Valspar® paint, while the floors were clad with Shaw® vinyl plank flooring:

Even sunrooms can get too much sun, so we installed Levelor® window blinds in the Aged Oak color, as well as a Gree® mini-split AC/heat unit to keep the space comfortable in all seasons:

Lastly, on the front side of the house, we created a curved concrete walkway:

There’s just something about a curved walkway leading to the front door that gives a home a touch of elegance:

So there we have it, another homeowner who took the plunge and now has more space than he did a year ago, not to mention that nice walkway. What are your thoughts? Love it? Hate it? How would you design a little more space for your home?

Maybe you know exactly what kind of addition your home would love. Maybe you have only have a vague idea and need some help figuring out exactly what you want. Either way, a consultation with us is always free and our phone number is (870) 845-1121. It’s up to you. Do you want your house to be the same size a year from now?

The first step was to tear everything out:photo-nov-17-9-08-39-am

The homeowners wanted 28″ by 4′ windows instead of full-length, so we framed in the walls around the new windows:photo-nov-17-2-52-37-pm

With a new Masonite® exterior door and vinyl Window Mart® windows, surrounded by  HardiePlank® Siding, this job is complete:photo-nov-18-11-44-19-am

Bathroom Remodel

We did a full bathroom remodel for this gentleman near Nashville, AR.

One wall was taken up with two closets and a narrow shelf, as you can see in these before shots:

 

We removed one closet and the shelf to install a vanity and linen closet, as well as painting the walls and replacing the flooring. Here are the after photos:

For the shower, we removed the old one and moved the wall two feet, and then we built the new one using Marazzi tile:

After moving the shower wall over, there was enough space left on the other side for the new toilet and the cabinet above it:

We also removed the exterior door, replaced it with a Masonite door, and painted it:
