Our (Almost) Sunroom Reveal – But First A Recap

The sunroom reveal is coming at you on Monday (new Youtube episode Sunday – subscribe right here so that you don’t miss it!!!), nevertheless it’s been a protracted mission and I wished to remind us all the place we began (and why). Pay attention, I’ll possible be working from residence for the foreseeable future (seems I didn’t thrive in an workplace job – even when it was my very own workplace!) and I wished a extremely fairly, well-lit room to write down, meet, and work on design initiatives in (no less than till we sort out the opposite home on the property that possible gained’t be completed for years). So in different phrases, this room is ALL MINE – it MY Mojo Dojo Casa Home (and positive, most likely twice a 12 months winter ceremonial dinner location). And I find it irresistible so VERY VERY MUCH. I can’t WAIT to indicate you the absolutely monty on Monday (with a completely set desk, too).

In case you don’t know the place we’re – this room was added, it didn’t exist and it’s proper off the lounge, connecting to the again porch. Once I’m not solo writing in it, Gretchen and I take many a name in right here, and I’m positive there will likely be loads of in particular person conferences in right here, too. We’ve solely eaten in right here (for dinner) most likely 5 occasions as a result of we principally eat outdoors (or at nook, island or in entrance of the TV – clearly).

This room additionally actually modified your complete structure of the home – and helped us create the lined again porch which we love.

In fact my Mojo Dojo Casa Home needed to get constructed, poured, framed, sided = all of the issues. And at occasions we nixed this room altogether because of price range causes, however because it’s my writing area – my “workplace” if you’ll – the entire thing could possibly be written off (which isn’t free, however may be run by the enterprise).

ARCIFORM drew up so many variations (see the porch publish right here) and we finally discovered it’s proper location. I had by no means finished an addition earlier than so I discovered a lot concerning the course of.

They poured the muse, framed it up, related the roof, added the HVAC (mini cut up) after which the enjoyable stuff – tile and home windows.

The tile design took me ceaselessly (principally as a result of I had the time – and wished to play a LOT – see this publish), and we finally went with one thing traditional (in a extremely vivid enjoyable shade). We partnered with Pratt + Larson and created this beautiful vivid blue shade that couldn’t make me happier. At occasions I anxious that it was going too vivid (I feel I designed this once I was in a extra muted/impartial interval of my life) however boy am I glad that we went with this vivid blue – it’s simply unbelievable (and so me).

I did have a hilarious freakout after the tile was completely finished as a result of she is BUSY, and pre-table it made me barely dizzy. Brian and I gave one another a type of uh-oh seems to be, like with the subtext of “is that this rather a lot for you, too?” It’s not like there was something we may do about it. However the second that the desk got here in it was PERFECT.

In fact there have been two late within the day adjustments – we initially had a sliding door on the again wall (to the entrance porch) however then we realized that we had no room for storage or wall area (for artwork) in the entire home (LOL), so we nixed it and bricked it up. As soon as we took that out we realized that we had been going to overlook the pure mild so even after the insulation we added two Velux skylights (shout out to Jamie for being so versatile) and I’m SO glad we did. North going through skylights FTW.

WAIT, I By no means Advised You About Designing The Home windows!!!

I’m positive you observed, however we customized the home windows with Sierra Pacific to marry the design of the unique diamond home windows and the brand new extra conventional grid on the primary flooring. You may see it extra within the large pulled again photographs of the home:

from: the complete earlier than and after yard makeover – the general structure + our first official oregon summer season on the farm

They’re simply so lovely and Sierra Pacific was so fantastic to work with with such a wonderful high quality product.

We added the pendants from Rejuvenation (Rose Metropolis fittings, artwork deco shade) which labored so properly as a result of the ceiling is vaulted and the chain helps it dangle straight down. They’re positively extra vintage-y and eccentric than a few of the different fixtures in the home, which I really like.

Clearly, then I had to buy (and select) the right eating desk, chairs and credenza which you’ve seen right here and there however not all collectively.

So come again Monday. I do know you assume you’ve seen it, so to shake it up I set the desk for a cocktail party (with flowers lower from the backyard) so that you’ll see it strive on a unique costume. That is the room that presently makes me the happiest and on Monday I break down why. 🙂
