Sunroom to Funroom
I've been MIA for a bit working on my car, but over the winter I had a bit of inspiration to update one of the most used rooms of my house: the sunroom.

When we bought the house, the sunroom had some dilapidated wood doors (rotting) and terrible carpet (possible murder scene? jk). Don't get me started on the "bar" that was included in the price. Bad pictures, but here's a quick view:

Wall leading to kitchen (it was an addition):
General View:

New Carpet, Paint, Sliding Door, Wall Mount Plasma, Gel burning Fireplace, and Mirage 5.1 Setup with wiring run through the walls...

I have to say, I LOVE the Mirage 5.1 speaker setup. Additionally, I'll plug for the sweet deals on the speaker wire,TV bracket, hookups, and various odds and ends to make the setup complete.

Nice job.

I was shocked when I saw the 2nd picture after seeing the first. I was expecting just some plywood or something, not those cool laminated beams.

In the future you might want to put matching trim on the interior openings (to match the door to the outside). Just a thought.

Nice architecture... Is this already made and you have bought it or you have got it get fixed by yourself? I want to know more about this work.

I really like the curve as well. That was an interesting idea! And the fireplace is definitely a nice, cozy touch. I recently had a sunroom added to my home. Although mine doesnt have the curvature, my home improvement NJ contractor let me have customized window configuration and some other custom detailing. It's now my favorite room!

Those curved windows are beautiful! I'd love to be able to do something like that with our mud room (ugly name for a back porch room in a 19th century house).

Amazing, it looks like a completely different room! Love the curved walls, it looks very cosy :)
