So I've been thinking about building a sun room addition on top of my deck. I have a really nice view from the rear of the house and want to enjoy it 4 seasons.
I had Champion come in and give me an estimate, and its clear they are a prefab mill. The specs he quoted for were much smaller than my deck (after I told him I wanted to cover the entire deck), and their pricing was outrageous.
I'm looking to build - this room will have as close to 100% windows as possible, and a gable roof that connects with the rear wall (not roof) of the house. Do not intend to take HVAC in there - I will use a heater fan in the winter when its in use - so electric will need to in there.
I'm moderately handy with interior work (did a flawless job on interior crown molding for the whole house recently - coped joints and all), but have never attempted major construction. Also handy with electricals.
Any advice on where to start? What should I contract out? Build myself? How to select contractors etc? Any thoughts and advice appreciated. If there are folks on here who can advise, I'll upload pictures.
