Have you noticed the house getting smaller as the kids get bigger? Ok – the size of the house doesn’t actually change, but as toddlers turn into teens, it can feel like you just don’t have the same amount of living space as you used to. Add in the fact that many families have adult children living at home longer or older family members sharing the home, and things can feel crowded at times.
3 Season Rooms are an affordable way to give families more space. Also known as a sunroom, 3 season rooms can be built on an existing deck or added to your home as an enclosed patio. The best 3 Season Rooms are custom designed to fit your home, your space, and your family’s needs. Here in Massachusetts, we’ve had homeowners who have had 3 season rooms built to serve specifically as a dining area, home office, or fitness space, as well as those who choose a sunroom for a more general-purpose space for family and friends to enjoy.
3 Season Rooms are more affordable than an addition. If you’re concerned about energy efficiency and heating your sunroom, you’ll want to go with double pane glass throughout. This will increase the cost of the 3 season room, but it will also extend the amount of time you’ll be able to enjoy the 3 season room in comfort.
Sunrooms are a favorite with pets, who enjoy having a greater view of what’s going on outdoors. The natural light has a positive impact on people’s health and well being. The 3 season room is a way to appreciate nature without having to be out in it – an important consideration in Massachusetts’ chilly springs, hot summers, and beautiful brisk autumns. Sunrooms can be built to any size, from the cute and cozy to spacious and gracious – sunrooms can be great spaces for entertaining.
