How much space do I need to build a glass room addition?

That is a great question that we get all the time. We have lots of requests for all sorts of different sizes ranging from a few square feet to some well over 1,000 square feet.

As you can imagine, there is no right or wrong answer here. We ask the homeowners to really consider how they plan on using the space in order to determine what the right size may be for them. A large family may need a lot more space than someone who is an empty nester. The size of the lot and how close you are to your neighbors also affects how big your room can be.

Start by speaking to your local municipality to see what your restrictions could be. Keep in mind, the building department may tell you that you can’t build something of that size. That doesn’t mean it’s 100% percent the case. Most properties go through a process called committee of adjustment or minor variance to get even a relatively small room approved due to zoning bylaws.

During our design process, we try to determine the most appropriate size and shape as well as the effect the room will have on the home and its use. Doing a simple floor plan with some ideas for furniture placement can be a great exercise in the creative process. – Matt Jacewicz, www.fourseasons-sunrooms.com
