Thanks guys! When we settled my parents' estate and sold their house we used part of the proceeds to treat ourselves to a Brady-Built Sunroom. Our room is roughly 16x11 with a full glass ceiling, the "wall" around the bottom of the wall is about 18". Pricy, mostly worth it, definitely different. Our big-jobs handyman said he could have done something like that for about $7000. or so less, but then he said "you wouldn't have this, it wouldn't look like that" and then we both laughed! It would have been a normal, attached addition. Not the same as being outside while you're still inside.

I clicked on your link and thought it was a Cialis commercial
Do you and himself stand there hugging each other with the outdoors pouring in around you?
(not that there's anything wrong with that)

Um, no. Wait, that's a good idea! Anyway, we will eat out there when the temperature is right. On a sunny, snowless winter day it gets up to 70-80 until the sun starts to get low. We could turn the heat on in the winter, but the electric bill is plenty high enough without that on! In the dead of summer the room is pretty much useless during the main part of the day. With no HVAC run out there we don't have AC. The glass is a special kind that does cut the heat build-up, but that won't help when the outside temps are in the mid-80s and above. But breakfast is a definite option, and I most enjoy it late at night, when everyone around us is sleeping (including dogs) and I can sit out there and read. Didn't get too many books read last summer because it never really cooled down at night. The best part is that about half the year or so we can leave the slider doors open from the house to the sunroom and treat it like a normal room.

Thanks PF. Hope you like this next one too. Unfortunately, I was on "CG Time" when I took this, which is staying up beyond way too late. Seen out our front door sidelight on my way to bed yesterday, which is why I'm heading off to bed after I post this:

Beautiful sunrise...I used to see lots of those when I was working nights.

Now I see them at the "wrong time" of day. <yawn>
