The Sunroom is the New Man Cave

For years Man Caves have been found in spare bedrooms, basements, and garages. Now it is finally time for the sunroom to be the new Man Cave!

We have been building sunrooms and enclosing screen porches and patios for over 30 years, and we have seen them take on many uses.

  • Extra dining room
  • Relaxation room
  • Reading room
  • Spot to see the view of the ocean or golf course
  • Office

But more and more we are seeing them turned into man caves. It does not take much extra once our job done, or you can have us do it for you.

Here are the basics I would recommend for a sunroom man cave:

  • A decent size television. This is a necessity for watching sports or zombie movies. Depending on the sunroom type, be sure you buy a TV that’s will hold up out there, and position it so the glare does not affect it at prime viewing times either.
  • A good celing fan. Buy one that looks nice and is big enough to deliver good air movement.
  • Climate control. A new sunroom, especially one that enclosed a screen room was not engineered to run off your home’s AC and heat as efficiently as rooms in the main house. I always recommend additional HVAC so you can maintain your comfort.
  • Comfortable furniture. You don’t have to keep the all-weather patio furniture in there. Drag your favorite chair out there or go buy a new one.

Those are the basics. If you really want to jazz it up, here are a few more recommendations:

If we can help you fulfill your man cave dreams with a sunroom space, be sure to give us a call.

We Want to Help You Slow Down and Relax

When I was little, I assumed we’d all be moving around in flying cars like the Jetsons by now, but no. Instead, cars still roll around on the roads, and we’re still hooked on fossil fuels.

It’s almost like the future just stopped moving forward.

After 30 years in business, we’re still using the same tools and techniques to build your porches, sunrooms, and awnings. Really, the only big change we’ve seen is in rechargeable batteries for our drills. Everything else is about the same.

But, you know, there’s nothing wrong with traditional and old school things. I think sometimes we all need to relax more and enjoy the things we have.

I’d love to install an awning so you can enjoy your porch in the shade.

I’d love to build a front porch on your house so you can wave at the neighbors and watch our kids bike around.

I’d love to screen in your porch so you can enjoy the backyard without the mosquitos.

If I can build a project on your home that helps you enjoy life a little more and slow down when you’re home, then my mission is complete. We’re not just here to build things and make money. We’re here to help folks enjoy life more.

Dave, just a simple guy who likes to build things that bring happiness

PS- Here’s a great example of what front porches were meant for…

Is It Spring Cleaning Time?

Spring cleaning is a bit of a misnomer. After all, we sometimes call a heavy cleaning ‘spring cleaning’ no matter what time of year it is.

That’s why I wanted to send this out to all of you. No matter what season you’re in right now, you might look out at your porch and say…

“Ugh! Look at all that yellow mess from the pollen.”

“Oh no, the dog/cat/ferret/child chewed through another screen.”

“All the dust from the construction site next door is horrible.”

If you’re saying anything like that, maybe it’s time for a ‘spring cleaning’.

If you don’t have the time, get in touch. We have a guy who cleans porches and patios.

If you want to clean it yourself and have one of our awnings or vinyl window installations, call or e-mail us for specialized instructions or cleaner. I have a sheet of instructions I can send you, and we sell the vinyl cleaner in the office.

The main thing is, we want you to have a nice clean patio or porch that you can be proud of and enjoy without worrying about spending so much time taking care of it.

If we can help with that in any way, don’t hesitate to call.

Thanks,

David Powers, your guide to enjoying the outside parts of your home

Ever Thought about Life without an Air Conditioner?

We take air conditioners for granted. We install a lot of them in our sunrooms or connect the rooms to your existing system, but…could you imagine life down south without one?
