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.
What house addition is on your wishlist?
