Adding a 3 season room to your home will become an economical additional space. By extending the area of your living space with a 3 season room, you add value to your home without breaking the bank. Below are a few topics to think about going into your new project.
- UV protection windows are a great choice if you are conscious of your skin health
- Tinted windows are nice to shade from the sun and also reduce glare
- Interchangeable glass and screen panels can be swapped during the warmer months
- A pitched roof with 1-2 skylights brightens up the area
- High ceilings make it feel roomier
- You can match it to the existing roof or even opt for energy star shingles
- If you are into that rustic feel, a barn house plank design can mesh with your style
- Deck tiles are an economical choice and can be made to look like any material that matches your style
- Wood flooring will be more expensive than the wood-tile counter part, but the wood won’t be worn down by mother nature in a 3 season room
- If you are building up on an existing deck, make sure the rest of the structure is up to code to withstand the new weight
Say yes to the fan:
- An outdoor ceiling fan will allow additional air flow during the heat spikes of the day
- Keeping costs for electricity low with a fan rather than using air conditioning
Cheers to social gatherings:
- This room is a great place to have tea, coffee, beer, or sangria with family and friends
- You can enjoy the outdoor views and temperature without your guests getting eaten by insects
What is the actual cost?
- For a properly managed project, a 3 season room can range from $30,000 to $80,000
- The price reflects that all work is done to code and completed by a licensed contractor
- The types of material you would like and the size of the space are the main cost adjusters
- Price is altered by labor intensive costs for demolition, footings, additions, or site prep
- With a 3 season room you do not have the costs associated with insulation, heating, air conditioning, or a foundation
- During the winter it can be used as a second fridge or freezer!
Adding on a 3 season room to your home will likely become your favorite home investment. The space can be constructed faster than a four season room and if, down the line, you would like to convert it to a four season room it would be possible. Plan now to get your project rolling in the late winter to be ready for the Spring time!
