Sun Room

What began as a plan for a functional attached greenhouse and source of passive solar heat for the house became "additional living space" per Julie's request. I'm glad she made that request.

I don't enjoy being indoors and would rather live outside but, having to be inside during our winters, I spend most of my free time in the sun room. The room is a thirty feet window into the natural world. The sunlight, potted plants and Julie's decorations made the room relaxing and soothing.

In warm weather we eat our meals on the deck but in the winter we eat in the sun room. We' on our way to work Mondays through Thursdays and miss the first direct sunlight that hits the western wall. On the weekends, however, it's a spectacular show as light moves, reflects, creates shadows and brightens colors.

Breakfast is a delight in the sun room.

Sounds delightful. If I ever get there again, I want a guided tour. Don't worry though: that was a one-off. :)
