4-season room addition


I'm contemplating adding a 4-season room approx 16 x 28 with studio roof. Is better / more economical / just as satisfactory to have someone build it from scratch or to buy a pre-fab aluminum kit and have that installed professionally? Thanks!

Contemplate hiring an architect to evaluate your house and lot in it's entirety for suitability, structural and mechanical considerations... as well as the aesthetics.

...is having what you do eventually spend your money on meet all of your design needs as well as the codes and regs so it can stay up once built

Build one from scratch. Have it designed to match the architecture of your home. It will last longer and offer more value than the prefab ones. The prefab ones I've seen over the years always end up with roof problems, which are nearly impossible to fix long term. Good luck with your project, Mike www.mikemedford.com
