Wauwatosa Transitional Sunroom

Project Overview

This 1934 Georgian Colonial is roughly 2400 square feet, with about 250 square feet of it being an addition that was built before this couple bought the home in the 2010’s. The addition was used as a sunroom, as it got warm sunlight all morning and afternoon. As this couple started remodeling other parts of their home, the sunroom addition quickly began to feel outdated. A major problem was that the sunroom didn’t have any forced air, so during fall and winter it was too cold to enjoy. The sunroom also felt closed off due to the doors and walls. This couple wanted a transi­tional remodel to make the space feel like it belonged in the home. With two children, they also wanted cubbies to keep jackets, backpacks, and shoes organized. Our solution was to open up this space and take out the doors and some of the wall, allowing anyone in the sunroom to be able to see into the family room or kitchen with ease.
