These Raleigh homeowners felt their existing screened porch was too dark and wanted an outdoor living space with more natural light. To solve their design challenge, Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham and the Greater Triangle converted their porch into a beautiful, sunlit 3-season room with skylights, Eze-Breeze windows, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
To add to the sense of airiness, we also replaced the porch’s flat roof with a gabled roof. Windows in the gable’s open end make the most of the room’s height while allowing in more light. Two new skylights in the roof crown this delightful outdoor room and add light, too.
Raleigh Three-Season Rooms Make a Difference
The main improvement that increases the natural light on this porch is the addition of floor-to-ceiling Eze-Breeze windows. Now the clients have nothing but windows on three sides of their room! This design allows them to enjoy the feeling of being outdoors whether the window screens are open or closed.
With Eze-Breeze windows, homeowners can slide open 75% of the clear vinyl window panels at one time to reveal screens when they want fresh air. They also have the option of removing all window panels, leaving floor-to-ceiling screens. The Eze-Breeze window panels are easy to remove completely and store away until needed again. When it’s cold or rainy outside, closing all of the porch windows keeps the room from feeling chilly or damp.
The clients also requested a way to heat and cool their 3-season room when the outdoor temperature swings to extremes. The solution we installed for them is a ductless mini-split HVAC system.
Additional improvements enhancing this porch include a ceiling fan, light-colored tongue-and-groove spruce flooring, and beige colored Eze-Breeze window frames in the room’s interior.
In addition to the 3-season room conversion, we also added a new paver patio. This gives the homeowners a new spot for their grill and a place to sit outside in the warmth of the sun. The pavers used here are Belgard’s Dublin Cobble Currituck Pavers.
In the gallery, you can get a sense of the light and airy feel of this Raleigh, NC, combination 3-season room and paver patio.
