House additions on my wishlist

During last week's non-stop rain, Alexander and I were cooped up at home for days on end. One day, we even donned raincoats and gumboots and ventured out to the sand pit in our backyard but it really was no fun with all that dampness around us. It got me wishing for a few house additions that would really make such rainy days (and all days, in fact) more bearable. Read on if you're interested...

1. Sunroom - While Alexander and I sat on the deck wishing the rain away, it occurred to me that if there was some way we could turn this outdoor space into a functional indoor area then we could use it all year round, rain or shine. We could still hear the birds, enjoy the wildlife, watch the trees sway in the wind and still get a good dose of Vitamin D! An experienced sunroom renovator like Additions Building will be able to help us encloseand turn existing deck into a sunroom of our dreams.

2. New carport - Our existing carport is an old rickety metal one which is functional but a bit of an eye sore. Ideally, I would love to have a new carport in a more stylish but timeless design which will look like a natural extension of the house and stand up to the elements (wind, sun, rain and hail)

3. Semi-indoor pool - I may have mentioned this more than once but come every summer, I can't help but feel a twinge of jealousy when I hear my neighbours splashing away on a hot day. I love the idea of a heated semi-indoor pool which can be used year round. Hopefully our home renovation budget will allow for a small pool in the near future.

A sunroom would be glorious. My dream addition would be a walk-in closet.

I don't spend that much time at home and even my home interior still looks kind of unfinished. I like minimalist living and therefore have no extra wishes. But I guess that if I had my own family like you, I'd also be looking for having as much comfort as possible for all. Hope that your pool wish comes true! Would be cool to have your own.

How good would a sunroom be! I'd never want to leave it!

Yep, I definitely have a house wish list, which includes a double oven and central vacuuming system. Oh and heated floors if I'm living somewhere cold. It's the practical things in life

Strong nods on the pool front, life is better with a pool right? And that sunroom inspiration pic is to die for!

A sunroom and a semi-indoor pool are perfect for the home.

You show us very nice places. I would add new things to my house as well. xoxo

I'll love to have a pool too!

It's not realistic at my current place coz I live in a condo (which already has a residents only pool) but if I ever get a new place I'll like to live in a house and have my very own indoor pool too. It doesn't need to be huge, just a lap pool where you can chill in.

A sun room is a great idea too, it just made me think of the Season 2 premier of The Librarians, they said something which I'll never be able to get out of my mind.

We have a sun?
Of course, what else would a sun room hold?

HAHAHA

Great picks. We had a sunroom in one of the houses we used to rent - I loved sitting in it when it was raining. It was very calming :-D
