Converting Deck into Sunroom
For this project we converted the existing decking into a fully insulated sun room.
Structural Reinforcement of the Deck Posts
In order support the additional structural loads, the original posts were removed, footers were poured to bear the load and then new laminated posts were added. In addition, an e18′ laminated-support beam was constructed and installed.
Installation of Flooring and Wall Panels
Here the custom window trim is being installed. The flooring consists of commercial grade vinyl tiles over a sealed-plywood sub-floor. Between the sub-floor and original deck is 2″ of rigid foam insulation giving it an R-10 rating to provide a continuous thermal break. The original decking joists were also insulated and sealed with wood panels.
Custom Windows and Trim
We used floor-to-ceiling double-pane, tempered glass to help create a comfortable, secure area. The walls are covered with painted wood panels to give a textured appearance. The walls and roof were framed with 2″x 6″ studs to allow more insulation.
Mini Split HVAC and Trim Lighting
To provide year-round comfort with minimal budget impact, we install an highly-efficient, extremely quiet mini-split unit. Requiring no additional duct work.
Ceiling Fan and Tilting TV
We installed a ceiling fan, lighted crown molding, and a retractable TV that folds away against the ceiling for an unobstructed view.
