When the temperature drops and the first signs of fall arrive, your brain starts to think about cozy indoor spaces, like watching football or lounging around the house with friends. But if you live in a house with no roof or an apartment without a patio, this can be hard to do. So, to help you cozy up to your home this fall, we’re sharing our step-by-step guide to building a screen room. This simple DIY project will give you the space you need to enjoy the best of what a home has to offer, no matter the weather outside.
In our case, the sunroom additions in Fullerton, CA are very close to the main home and are made of glass, so they allowed for a lot of natural sunlight to come in, which was great for reducing the cost of electricity for lighting the house. They also allowed for great views of the landscape outside, which was a nice bonus. They qualified for great landscape views outside, which was a nice bonus. They also provided a comfy area for reading, watching TV, or hanging out with friends and family. They were also an excellent place for kids to play and make noise without disturbing anyone in the main home. They allowed for great views of the snow falling outside in the winter and provided a nice place to stay warm and dry while still being close to friends and family. And they offered a nice place to grow plants and flowers.
The to-do list for this project is pretty long, but it can be broken down into three parts. The first part is involved: get the wood. You are likely thinking up how to get enough wood pieces to build the structure of your screen room. Fortunately, you don’t need a lot of wood since you can use pallets and other discarded materials lying around.
The second step is to build the frame for your screen room, which involves installing the framework for your screen and then putting up the screen itself. The last piece is to attach all of the covering materials. In this case, we used shiplap siding and a combination of wood shakes, plywood, and finished panels.
In conclusion, screen rooms provide an excellent opportunity to integrate an outdoor space into your home and improve indoor play. They are a practical way to let in natural light and provide a comfortable outdoor place to relax and spend time with friends, kids, or family.
