As the master Columbia custom sunrooms builder we always have surprises up our sleeve to dazzle our clients. In fact, it’s kind of like the transformational story of the pumpkin becoming a coach in the fable Cinderella.
In this first case, the “pumpkin” was a dated screened porch that had outlived its usefulness and eye appeal. And, most important, it did not offer total protection from allergens and insects, a concern that was paramount to the homeowners.

The Archadeck outdoor living challenge was to create a stunning sunroom with floor-to-ceiling views of the homeowners’ back yard. Replete with top and bottom transom window panels for added drama and light filtering, this transformation was magical.
After Archadeck of Central SC completed the project.
This screened porch transformation actually exceeded the homeowners’ initial goals. For one, it increased the total livable square footage of the home. In today’s competitive home market, that is a very good thing.
Secondly, it created the presence of natural sunlight filtering in to illuminate the newly-protected sunroom environment. With playful displays of diffused light, the sunroom has now become the family’s favorite space for game time and conversation.
Lake Murray Sunroom Before & After
The same is also true for a lakefront property client who had wanted a sunroom added to their Lake Murray home for years. Archadeck made it happen with gorgeous results. Having had an existing deck overlooking the lake, the family longed for a more usable space.

Archadeck of Central SC gave them a custom sunroom for ultimate indoor/outdoor living, which the whole family now enjoys. We hear even the family’s parrot is wild about his new view of the world, in all directions!
Charming new sunroom delivers views in all directions!
Amenities take center stage here as the floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide breathtaking views of the lake, throughout the day and into the night. The new sunroom is 16’ deep by 18’ wide, a generous space featuring ceramic tile flooring and a beautiful tongue and groove pine ceiling. And as the family is lounging, what is truly special is the view of the beadboard ceiling detail overhead.
As with all Columbia custom sunrooms designed and built by Archadeck of Central SC, improving the enjoyment and functionality of daily living is key. Our new sunrooms serve as a sanctuary and provide a peaceful area to enjoy life’s special moments, like hummingbird-watching over morning coffee.
