A New Deck Enclosure in Stratham
One of Sunspace Design’s strengths is our ability to merge traditional construction practices with the unique requirements of glass enclosure design. For that reason, we offer general construction services in addition to our line of custom glass products. This catch-all category stands apart from our traditional lines like greenhouses, sunrooms, conservatories, pool enclosures, and skylights because it represents a fundamental flexibility we offer every client: if you have a unique goal in mind, we can help you achieve it. We’ve completed deck and patio projects, total kitchen transformations, and complete home renovations for clients throughout New England.
Today’s Construction Showcase entry features a hybrid project involving elements of both traditional construction and glass space work: the conversion of an exterior deck into a year-round room at a residence in Stratham, New Hampshire. The process required new conventionally constructed frames to the existing deck’s footprint, bringing in thermally efficient insulation, and new siding and roofing. The visual goal was to create a seamless transition with the home’s preexisting architectural style. Other details include beautiful pine boards, a sloped ceiling, and large glass windows. The result is the transformation of a seasonal deck into a rustic space that can be enjoyed by family and friends throughout the year, in any environmental condition. Let’s take a closer look at the process.
