Framing is well underway on the ‘outdoor living room’ we are creating for a client. The architect did a very nice job detailing the project, keeping the feel and materials the same as the home. With several large windows, the room will allow full views of the exterior. Our work includes installing a gas fireplace in the room. We are installing a hip roof on this addition which will tie in well with the hip roof on the existing home.
This room is not connected directly to the house itself. It is accessed from the house by the deck around the room. While it is not really part of the living area of the home, we are taking care to insulate the room well so that it can be used into the spring and fall months. The fireplace will be able to heat the room quickly when necessary.
