Carlisle – Sunroom Addition

Sunroom features a vaulted ceiling, a bluestone floor with hydronic radiant heat, and tall casement windows with transoms above.
Tandem pocket wall doors that are 12 feet wide easily open and shut depending on the occasion.
The room connects to the outdoors with a new farmer’s porch along the back of the house.
The porch has mahogany decking, pine beadboard ceiling, and features built-in speakers with recessed lighting.
The exterior of the sunroom features trim that matches the existing details to achieve unity in the front and the back of the house.

This new sunroom was built to replace an existing deck while ensuring the new space had its own character. These goals were achieved by building a 15×20 room that sits one step down from the existing family room and by replacing the two separate six foot sliding glass doors with a 12’ wall of tandem pocket doors that can be easily opened and closed as needed. A bluestone floor withstands the sun’s rays, while tall casement windows with transoms above allow for ample ventilation and natural light. This room also features a vaulted ceiling and hydronic radiant floor heat. The room connects to the outdoors with a new farmer’s porch along the back of the house.
