Patio Turned Into 3 Season Room With Glass
Our customer had a covered patio that they loved to use, but were limited in its use because of the Colorado weather. Working together, we designed a way to enclose the patio with glass, turning it into a full-use 3 season room. The custom design involves multiple sliding glass doors to give the homeowner entrances on each of the three sides of glass.

Cathedral 1 - Here you can see two sides of the glass enclosed patio.
Cathedral 2 - The smaller glass panes were designed to fit between the beam and the cover over the patio.
Cathedral 3 - The homeowner wanted to keep the stucco half-wall at one end of the patio so we designed a pane to fit on top of it and a sliding door that would work around it.
Cathedral 4 - Here you can see the built-in grill located just outside sliding doors leading to the 3 season room.
Cathedral 5 - This view shows the sliding door open . They allow fresh air in to the room, but because they are glass do not hinder the view.
Cathedral 6 - The beams along the upper portion of the glass walls were added by DBS. The height of the cover was too high for the glass so we added that and put in smaller panes of glass along it.
Cathedral 7 - The added beams were matched to the existing support beams so they appear to have been part of the original structure.
Cathedral 8 - Here is the sliding glass door that was installed on the front of the 3 season room we built.
Cathedral 9 - The customer has turned this 3 season room into a comfortable area to enjoy the outdoors for most of the year.
