Family Room Addition, Screened-In Porch and Deck Addition Project in Northern Virginia
At Rendon Remodeling & Design, we understand our clients’ nervousness and excitement when considering a home remodeling project. As a result, we’ve developed our process with the client in mind. Being a design-build firm means our approach allows us to bring in all the necessary in-house experts to help bring a client’s remodeling or renovation vision to life. A perfect example of this is our recent Family Room and Addition remodel we completed this year.
For this remodeling project, our client was looking to renovate their family room––one of the most used rooms in their home. The goal for the project was to enlarge the space so that it wouldn’t only be used for everyday family activities, but also to provide ample space for entertaining.
In addition, the family desired an outdoor addition space to enjoy and host guests, so we also worked with them to create a screened-in porch and deck area that would meet all their needs and more!
Key Design Features
Some key design features for the family room addition were the cathedral ceiling as well as the large windows on the rear of the addition to make the space look and feel more expansive. The remodel included a sizeable four-window unit with transom windows above to allow more natural light to flow into the room.
We also added gorgeous design elements on the screened-in porch and deck. The decking included two-tone colors. We used Trex Transcend Spiced Rum for the “picture frame” perimeter decking and Havanna Gold for the main decking.
We used the Trex Transcend composite railing system with a Cocktail Rail cap and black aluminum balusters for the railing. We used painted shiplap panels on the walls inside the screened porch, and the ceiling of the screened porch included exposed roof rafters with T1-11 paneling. We installed Screeneze screening for the screened porch.
All of these features and elements met our client’s desires for a more expansive living room area as well as an outdoor space they would come to enjoy for years to come!
The only noticeable challenge we encountered was during the installation of the roof for the screened porch. Due to existing conditions and the shallowness caused by the windows above it, it presented an issue; however, we were able to use a metal roof for the screened-in porch roof, which meets the requirements for a lower-sloped roof.
A Beautiful Finish
The finished product is not one, but three beautiful spaces for the family to spend time in. A spacious, natural-light-filled family room for unwinding or entertaining family and friends. And two new, large, functional outdoor areas for gatherings and enjoying the fresh air!
When the home you love feels crowded, additional square footage adds a world of possibilities, so consider expanding your living space with a remodel or a new addition.
