As I sat in my sun-soaked carriage house this morning, looking out on several inches of the season’s first snow, I thought to myself “Thank goodness we have all these wonderful windows that allow the sun to stream in”. If you live anywhere in the northeast you understand my thinking as the late fall and winter months can get pretty dark and dreary due to a shortened daylight schedule and/or an overcast sky. When the sun is out, we revel in it!
My thought process then went to all the wonderful post and beam sun-rooms I’ve seen in Yankee Barn Homes houses over the years, and the concept for this post was born. Why not highlight them here to show the amazing difference the addition of just a few feet can make?
You’d be hard pressed to find a better way to greet the day. A cup of coffee, the news (in whatever format you prefer), and the light pouring in to brighten your morning, not to mention the added boost of acquiring your daily dose of Vitamin D!
The wonders of a post and beam sun-room are many. Due to the frame, you have nearly unlimited options in the number of windows you want, where you want them, or where you don’t, and decor styles are endless.
