Who wouldn’t want something like this at home?

Lots of light coming in, just happiness all around… it’s like having a permanent sunflower for a living space.
I’ve been trying to come up with a tropical version of these glassed sun rooms for the back part of my Nuvali house, given two additional constraints:
- must let the air in without having to open windows
- must use a cheaper material than glass
Have explored various roofing and window options, but the best I’ve come up with it this: opaque roofing (similar to garage/carport roofing, still undecided on the material) with screened grills at the tips that enclose the whole area and keep the bugs out.
Visited a friend’s home in Paranaque last Saturday and was surprised to see that her patio uses this exact set-up!
Interesting! Definitely much cheaper than using wraparound glass windows and doors, and the screened ends will make sure I get the tropical breeze in.
What do you think? 🙂
