Our sunroom project is located on Gibson Island which is situated off the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay and is part of Anne Arundel County. This sunroom renovation brought several challenges. One such challenge was the new heating and air system. These systems needed updating to properly cool and heat the new addition. Due to the water table on Gibson Island no duct work could be placed in the floor, so it was installed in the ceiling of a second floor bedroom closet.
The house received a much needed update and makeover to improve overall efficiency of all systems. The homeowner’s goals were to create a more comfortable and efficient living space while adding curb appeal. The products selected maximize value and add visual impact. A unique design detail is the structural barrel arch which mimics the radius on the windows. The sunroom bump out includes a copper standing seam roof and two sets of double glass doors in the front along with a single glass door to the side yard.
This family’s renovated second home is beautifully situated facing the bay. It was important to have a relaxing area with a view, while maintaining the integrity of the original design. The set of four large windows that make up the bay window seat and arched transom opens the space up for much natural light and water views. We were able to give more accessibility to the outdoors by adding a new entrance between the garage and kitchen. Owings Brothers installed maintenance free decks adjacent to the sunroom and the new kitchen entrance to offer the family additional outdoor living space.
We also remodeled the kitchen and bathroom of this waterfront home. Check it out here.
