Sunroom Addition: Final Reveal

I have been SO behind on updating our sunroom progress!  For those you new to our blog, we started back in November with the idea of converting our covered back porch into a sunroom... And that idea grew into almost a complete room addition (you can read about our entire process)

I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!  And can't sing my husband's praises enough!  He built the entire room... planning, framing, wiring, putting up drywall, tiling the floors.  I still am amazed by how well he could do all of it!  We, of course, enlisted lots of great help from both our Dads, Jeff's brother, and lots of friends (especially from Amy's husband!)  Thank you to everyone who spent time helping us finish the room! 

So after a 5-month long process, we are finally done!  Well, done with construction... For those of you who know me, decorating is a definite iterative process (sorry, Jeff!)  Here is how it looks now...

One of my favorite elements in the room, the bead board ceiling....

I wish I could capture on camera how much light this room lets into the kitchen and living room too, making the whole house feel much more open and inviting.  Definitely the perfect spot for entertaining, relaxing, or working at the desk.  Thanks to Jeff, this room is quickly becoming my favorite spot in the house!

What do you think?  What big projects have you tackled yourself?

  9. What an awesome addition to the house. Very well done. For some reason, I feel like there should be ladies in sundresses, guys wearing khakis and button up shirts, and Blue Cups in everyone's hands.

    You have a world of talent for this.
