To extend a dormer bungalow in Co. Wicklow with a new Sunroom.The clients needed an extra living space/TV room. This would create a much needed space for their growing family.The clients wanted to maximise light while at the same time they wanted plenty of wall space and they wanted a contemporary design that would aesthetically blend in with their home.They requested that we remove the doors widen the opening to 8ft wide and supply and fit an RSJ this would integrate the new Sunroom into the existing home.
To create a new bright space/family living room that would at the same time keep the light and brightness in the home and to create a contemporary design that would look aesthetically pleasing on the home.This new room would be open plan from the existing dining room where we would widen the existing opening to 8 feet wide.
We designed a Gable front design with 4 roof windows for maximum light.The clients chose white pvc for the finish on the inside of the roof windows for brightness.
We recommend Light Oak outside and white inside for the sunroom to blend in with the existing house windows.Corner feature block pillars were added to create a contemporary design.We recommended to use 100mm insulated plasterboard on all the external walls,150mm of spray foam insulation in the ceiling and 100mm insulation in the floor for a cosy room in the winter months
We had to relocate 2 x rainwater pipes and gullies. 1 radiator was extended from the existing central heating system. The doors were removed and the opening widened to 8ft wide using a steel RSJ to create an open plan walk-through from the dining room.
We discussed with the client what type of flooring they would install onto the new floor and they decided on timber,with this information we ensured that the new concrete floor was laid at the perfect level so when the clients laid their floor the new floor would be at the same level as the existing house floor.
The sunroom took 5 weeks to complete. The build was constructed on time and within budget.
The clients were delighted with the completed sunroom,they were happy that we met all their initial requirements,built the new room within the agreed budget and timescale and that we left their home perfectly clean and tidy.
They were particularly happy with the size and spaciousness of the new room as it was more than adequate for their furniture requirements.
The client happily commented that we started work after their neighbours commenced an extension and we were finished while the neighbours extension was still being constructed.
