Covered Patio Turned into 3-Season Room Using Glass


Our customers 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 homeowners entrances on each of the three sides of glass.

CP 3 – The homeowners 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.

CP 6 – The beams along the upper portion of the glass walls were added by DBS.  The height of the cover was too high to use single panes of glass.  We added the beam and put in smaller glass panes along it.  The beams were matched to the existing support beams so they appear to have been original to the structure.

CP 7 – Working together, the homeowners now have the 3-season room of their dreams and enjoy their new outdoor living space as much as possible!
