About a month ago my husband and I decided to add a sunroom and small deck to our house. 
We priced different options and different contractors, and we finally signed a contract a couple of weeks ago. 
The constructions should start around the 
end of November, beginning of December, if not earlier. 
I have been looking for inspiration on Pintrest.
(here you can find my sunroom board)
We are super excited, as we know this will be a great addition to our space, and a room that the all family will enjoy. 
I have a general idea of how I would like this room to look like, and my goal is really to reuse and transform furniture we already have. 
I know we will have to make at least one purchase, but I am already checking Craigslist daily.
It's all about saving and planning ahead.

Stay Frugal,

How exciting! I know you will enjoy the extra space with all the kids toys etc. I remember when mine were little. It felt like my house shrunk! I can't wait to follow your progress with it.

Dani- I am so excited for you. I love a sunroom and we don't have one in this house. It is the thing I miss the most here. I can't wait to see yours all done. Will it be winterized? xo Diana

Good Morning Daniela, How exciting, you must be thrilled to pieces to be able to plan this special room for you and your family.
I know, with that fabulous "eye for detail" which you have, your room will be gorgeous.
Have a lovely weekend.
Best Wishes

Dearest Daniela,
That is a wonderful addition for all of you to enjoy!
You certainly will manage your budget in a very intelligent way; as usual.

How fun! Another room in which to show your great style. I can't wait to see your purchases and the room as you do it. :)

Our house has one as an extension of the kitchen, and it's where we spend ALL of our time! (Of course, the make-out couch is in there, so...)

Oh how wonderful! I'll be watching with interest to see how frugal you are on this as I am hoping for an inexpensive sunroom in our next home. I know you'll do a great job!

A sunroom is one room I would love to have. I am sure you will get lots of use from it and know you will decorate it frugally. Will it be completed by Christmas? What a fantastic present that would be for the family

Can't wait to see the result. With decks, just remember, you'll never regret having made it larger!

Oooh, sounds exciting! I know your new space will be just as lovely as the rest of your home. Have fun!
