The Sun Will Shine Again

One of my favorite features of our house is the sunroom on the front. It’s a beautifully large room off of our living room, with windows on three sides.

However, as we were ripping off stucco, we found that the structure wasn’t sound. There had previously been a gutter and roof, that was simply covered with another gutter and roof on top. You can see that, plus lots of water damage in the picture below.

The windows are in decent condition, so we were able to take them out and reuse them.
