Assessing the Sun Porch

I have had this picture open on my desktop for days.  I just keep coming back to it because I want this space.  I have a sun porch off the back of my house  that used to be my office– it’s okay….but not great and I really want to re-think it’s architecture.

So I keep looking at this because technically, the construction of my porch is actually newer and probably more sound than this image but this image is way more inviting.

I think it is really more greenhouse than porch, but I am thinking that since I don’t use the porch as it is (I moved my office out about a year ago), and I would use the greenhouse for plants AND I think I would enjoy sitting in and hanging out in a space that was filled with greenery and sun as well….  or maybe I should build a porch over my patio that has this kind of roof (because I think the roof is my favorite part)  hmmmm…..I am going to keep thinking…it’s not like funds to do either…. but I am going to dream.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
