Many Owners of smaller homes would like to expand their living space but don’t need an enclosed Addition and the cost that does with that. This project illustrates one solution to the dilemma…An Outdoor Room. We added a large exterior Deck to an existing one story bungalow that opens onto an adjoining side yard. This provided the desired additional living space for less cost and without disturbing the interior rooms. An open trellis gives a sense of enclosure while wood lattice panels provide privacy from the street. Usable for nine months of the year, an outdoor room was the perfect solution for this situation.
