As most of you know, our sunroom has been the biggest current project in the Loechner Lair, and I’m happy to report that after a few snafus and some scheduling conflicts, we now have progress to share (did that rhyme? I think it did!)!:

Well worth the wait!

Yes, that is a fully, 100% drywalled space. Are you starting to envision how beautiful it will be when finished? A vast improvement from the insulated room we shared just over a month ago, yes? We’ve tackled the electrical and finished spraying our insulation, so our renovation goal checklist for the room is coming along just swimmingly.

I swoon over those exposed beams every time I see them!

The drywall process took a bit longer than planned, even though we hired out that phase. Between travel schedules for us and our drywall contractor’s availability, we ended up a bit behind schedule. BUT – all good things come to those who wait, and we’re thrilled with any progress we can get!

Almost there, friends!

Next steps? We’ll be painting the room (white – are you surprised?), hanging trim and installing a floor solution over the concrete that we’re super excited about. More on that later! For now, can you spot that sweet little reading nook loft area in the below photo? We’re going to be filling it with fluffy white cushions and adding a Swedish ladder for our future little one to enjoy reading/studying/playing in secret!

A secret reading nook for our future wee ones!

And yes, we’re still dreaming of our furniture plan and can’t wait to start decorating. Look for a serious update over the next month as we wrap up yet another (hopefully!) successful project – just in time for spring!

    Oh I love that reading nook so much! What a beautiful four season sun-room.

    What's really nice about this house is that it has huge glass windows that overlooks a wide and beautiful view. It could be more appealing though if you put on some shutters in Perth to subdue the strong sunlight during the day.
