I really enjoyed working on this project. I hope you are satisfied with the results. The diagramming process I utilized to develop this scheme showed some opportunity for positioning the addition directly west of the kitchen. I do realize that this position is not what you are expecting but I found the benefits very rewarding. The existing bay window would be removed to allow for direct access and view from the kitchen through the sunroom to the rear of your property. The opening would be approximate 8' wide and would be cased in painted trim. I propose removing the existing french doors and stairs to make room for the enlarged mudroom. A new double window unit, to match the existing would be installed centered on the interior dimension of the room. The sunroom is open to the mudroom below by means of an open railing.
The sunroom itself is inspired by the bay on the south side of the front of your residence. I feel this form really ties the exterior into the room and allows for a panoramic view out. The sunroom is 20’ x 26’ and has a cathedral ceiling. I propose exposing the framing and finishing the ceiling with painted beaded board. The French doors that surround the sunroom offer floor to ceiling views and maximize the potential for day light in the space. To the south of the sunroom room is a patio that is defined by four columns supporting an open trellised pergola. Various flowering plants could be planted along the base of the patio and be allowed to climb the columns and provide a “natural” roof to the patio.
I have enlarged the mudroom to approximately 8’ x 10”. The elevation provided is an interior elevation illustrating the potential for structured storage. A bench is provided for ease when taking off and putting on shoes. Outlets can be provided to create a charging area for devices that need to be on the go. The flooring is intended to be bluestone which is both durable and attractive. Depending on your preference, door and or drawers can be provided to conceal the items being stored in the mudroom.
Again, I greatly enjoyed putting together this proposed design for you. If you have any questions or require additional clarification on the intention, please do not hesitate to contact me.
