Let me just start this post by saying this room is completely unnecessary and an extravagance. If we were building, this space would be unnecessary UNLESS we had an amazing pool… but we don’t.
The blueprints show that this room was originally an outdoor space, screened in porch situation. In 1975, they converted it into an all season sunroom, built the bar with a pool table. You’ll see in the original photos that the walls matched the exterior facade.
In any event, it is a space that will get used. The bar area will come in handy the day we gut the kitchen and need a mini-kitchen situation… and this is the ONLY reason we included an 18″ dishwasher in the renovation. Again, this isn’t a necessary appliance with the actual full kitchen 30 feet away.
No real drama during this renovation other than the amount of time it took us to complete. As you know, this is a large house that literally everything needs some updating and this room has not been much of a priority.
It is a space for games of Monopoly, puzzles, snacks, soaking up vitamin D and morning phone calls.
OK… must show the befores:
Wait for it…
