Favorite Room....Hooked On Houses


 Hi, everybody! I'm Julia from Hooked on Houses, and I live in Ohio with my husband Dave and our kids Jake and Lily. When Kim asked me to share my favorite room with you guys, I didn't have to think twice about which one it would be. The sunroom is the one I spend as much time as possible in, especially this time of year. Come on in!

This used to be a big, open deck that ran across the back of our house, but with our wooded yard, it was hard to spend much time out there without getting eaten alive, especially in the evenings. Julia's Sunroom | hookedonhouses.net
So we decided to build a screened porch. But that project grew, as projects tend to do. We started asking, "How much to add windows? Okay, how about an A/C unit? Heat? Insulation?" Before we knew it, we were building a sunroom instead. Julia's Sunroom | hookedonhouses.net
The extra investment was worth it because we can use the room on all but the coldest days of winter and the hottest days of summer, and it functions as a kind of family room for us now year-round.

Hard to believe it's almost time to start redecorating the sunroom for fall... Julia's Sunroom Decorated for Fall | hookedonhouses.net
