Maintenance-Free Outdoor Living Design

When you’ve got a beautiful backyard, you should enjoy it to the fullest. Hatchett can design and build a maintenance-free sunroom and outdoor living space that you and your family will enjoy year ’round. Check out this recent project of ours in Virginia Beach.

Hatchett Sunroom Addition Maintenance-Free Materials

Originally, this house only had a small wooden deck on the back.  It was good for enjoying occasional mild days in the Spring and Fall, but it wasn’t a comfortable place to relax or entertain during the rest of the year. By adding a sunroom and a new covered deck, these homeowners can now enjoy their backyard regardless of the season or forecast.

Maintenance-Free PVC Materials

To further extend their hours of enjoyment, they selected maintenance-free materials for this design. The sunroom windows are PVC casement windows with transoms. The interior walls, ceiling and the tongue & groove flooring are all PVC as well. Then they chose a standing seam metal roof to finish the room.

Maintenance-Free Decking & Railings

We also used maintenance-free PVC materials for the decking and stadium steps that stretch across the entire rear of their home. The railings are vinyl with aluminum pickets. To provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain, we covered the porch as an extension of their sunroom roof.

For comfort and convenience, we added ceiling fans, additional electrical outlets and a gas line for a new grilling station. Under the deck, the vertical PVC lattice provides hidden storage with access doors on either end.

Brady Home Remodel

Tina Brady’s home in Norfolk was built in 1912. Like most homes from that era, the kitchen was small and the laundry room was in the basement.

The only way to enlarge her kitchen, bring the laundry up to the main level and add a half bath was to build an addition, and she knew Hatchett was right for the job.

New Addition to Old Construction

Building an addition is a sizeable chore, but adding on to an old house brings a unique set of challenges… ones that aren’t usually fully revealed until demo begins. After many conversations and plan revisions, Hatchett’s Design Team figured out the best solution.

Once the structural issues were resolved, the next priority was to keep the design of the renovation true to the traditional style her home. A classic color palette of whites and grays helped create an updated design that hearkens back to times past.

Material Selections

Tina chose maple Ultracraft cabinets that are painted Arctic White and feature the Royalton door style. She opted to complement her cabinets with Silestone Lyra polished countertops and Ice White beveled subway tile for the backsplash.

For contrast, we incorporated cherry wood accents from Southside Woodshop into the design. Both the island top and floating shelves are American Cherry treated with Food Safe Mineral Oil.

The warmth of her new kitchen comes from these cherry wood features as well as the brick of the original chimney.

The black and white tile floor with its custom designed border are stunning and add an air of nostalgia to the space. We used a combination of Retro and Metro hexagon mosaic tiles to create the pattern.

The border runs along the perimeter of the kitchen cabinets and through the adjoining laundry room and half bath – which pulls the new spaces together seamlessly.

Tina and her adorably huge Great Dane, Sophie, are enjoying every new day in their timelessly beautiful and spacious kitchen addition. Kudos to our Design Team: Michael, Design Consultant; Eileen, Designer; and Dennis, Project Manager.
