Seven Alternative Sunroom Ideas

One of the most exciting parts of installing a sunroom on your home is deciding what you’d like to do with the space. Most people use their sunrooms as a living room, but the possibilities of what you can do with the space are truly endless. You have the freedom to create a space that perfectly suits your needs and desires. To help inspire you, we’ve curated a list of seven other ways that you can utilize your sunroom.

Brady-Built sunrooms boast exquisite curved wooden beams that add a touch of elegance and architectural beauty to our designs.

Does a Sunroom Make Sense in the New England Climate?

Sunrooms have gained tremendous popularity in recent decades, especially in northern states like New England, where weather conditions play a significant role in everyday life. If you are considering adding a sunroom to your home, it's important to understand the unique considerations and benefits associated with the New England climate.

Sunroom Semantics

The desire to connect with nature while enjoying the comforts of indoor living has led many homeowners to explore the concept of glass-enclosed spaces, generally referred to by the blanket term, “sunroom.” When discussing glass-enclosed spaces, it's important to clarify the terminology and understand the unique characteristics of each style. While these terms are often used interchangeably, they refer to distinct architectural designs and features. Understanding these differences can help clarify and inspire what your vision may be for adding one to your home.



Should I Worry About Snow Build-Up on the Roof of My Sunroom?

Since there are many more windows in a sunroom than in most normal rooms, it’s pretty reasonable to be concerned that it might not be able to support the heavy snow that accumulates all winter long here in New England. The good news is that when it comes to Brady-Built Sunrooms, there’s nothing to worry about.

Best Design Awarded to Brady-Built Additions and Sunrooms at the Worcester Home Show

Why Southern Yellow Pine?

Strong, beautiful, renewable – Southern Yellow Pine is the environmentally friendly choice!

The wood product used in Brady-Built’s hand crafted laminated beams and structural components is 100% American made from sustainably managed US Forests. In fact, Southern Yellow Pine is our nation’s most abundant and sustainably harvested wood resource and has been an integral part of American history, from ship building to flooring, since revolutionary times. Quite simply there is no other wood product that offers such “sustainable” value. Southern Yellow Pine is a clean, renewable, nontoxic, recyclable, bio-degradable & energy efficient building material. It grows fast and is literally farmed like any other food supply – 199 million acres of forest get replanted in southeastern USA every year!

Hidden Health Benefits to Owning a Sunroom

We all know that spending time in the sun can be beneficial to your health, but most people aren’t too sure of the specifics. One thing is for sure – having your very own sunroom makes it easy for you to get more sun all year round. Here are a few of our favorite advantages of being a sunroom owner and enthusiast.

Why is Argon used between the sheets of glass on most of the better grade insulating glass?

Insulating glass is made with a space separating panes of glass for the same reason people used to install “storm windows” on their houses. Air that does not move is a good insulator. Most insulating materials are designed in a way that traps air to create small pockets of “dead air”.
