Our sunroom gets more use than any other room in our house.  We eat most of our meals there, we spend most of our evenings there and we sometimes fall asleep on the couch there.  In the 16 years we’ve owned our home, it’s also been the most neglected room.  Roberts Residential Remodeling transformed it into the best room in the house.

The room is challenged.  It’s just 19’ x 10.5’.  It evolved from an old kitchen nook and a screened porch.  It has two over-sized entries – one to the kitchen and one to the formal dining room.  It had a leaky roof and a non-functional gas fireplace in the corner.  The ceiling was a wavy, crooked hung ceiling with just one overhead light.  The walls were painted paneling.  Challenged.

John Paggen, Roberts’ owner and our designer, helped us imagine a useful, updated space with a couple of key built-ins that improved our storage and filled the space left by the dead fireplace.  We approved the plans with only a couple of minor tweaks.

At each phase of the project, the team from Roberts Residential Remodeling was timely, considerate and extremely professional.  Demolition and construction all followed our project manager, Chris Baumann’s schedule exactly and the disruption to the rest of the house was minimal.  At several points, the crew solved minor problems no one will ever notice, but made the finished product that much more polished.

A word about millwork.  Roberts is proud of their in-house millwork facility.  And rightly so!  They created two pieces for us – a corner bookcase and a credenza for our TV/Satellite receiver and tons of new storage.  We were anxious to have these new storage options.  What we didn’t expect was the amazing craftsmanship.  Even the insides of the drawers and the interior shelves were beautifully crafted and finished.  Chris’s recommendations for hardware and stain color were perfect.

Here are a few pictures of the project that really show the dramatic improvement in our favorite room.  We have recommended Roberts to several of our friends – and they’ve been thrilled too.  Thank you, John, Chris, and everyone at Roberts Residential Remodeling.
