Benefits of a Sunroom Addition

Monday, February 4th, 2019

sunroom-additionRoom additions are one of the best ways to add value and function to your home without having to undertake major renovations inside the house. There are many options for room additions, and if you haven’t decided on a specific one yet, we’d like to show you some of the benefits of a sunroom.

A sunroom is usually added onto the side of a house as a supplement to one of the larger living areas, such as a living room or family room. They have glass on three sides (and often the roof) to allow in the most light, and are typically used to enhance enjoyment of the house rather than add on more facilities.

Why should you consider a sunroom for a room addition? Here are a few of the biggest benefits.

Stop By Encino the Next Time You Visit Los Angeles

Monday, February 6th, 2017

new-construction-ABC-Los-AngelesLos Angeles has lots of wonderful neighborhoods to explore, and one of our favorites is often overlooked. Encino, a Spanish term for “evergreen” or “holm oak,” was named after the beautiful oak trees found in the valley—or perhaps just one in particular. The Encino Oak Tree, also called the Lang Oak, was a 1,000 year-old tree, felled naturally in El Nino storms in 1998. However, you can still visit a monument in honor of this historic tree on the corner of Ventura Blvd. and Louise Ave.

There’s lots more you can do in Encino, though. Check out our favorite neighborhood hot spots and family hangouts, and visit Encino if you’re exploring the LA area.
