|Enclosing A Existing Patio|
If you have a outdoor patio with a roof on it and you would like to make it living area what to do. If the patio was permitted and built to your local building codes this will make your job easier. The patio will need a exterior footing and windows. This is a common room addition and their are a lot of these patios on older homes that have been converted to living space, unfortunately most are not to code. These homes can be sold with out the proper permits as long as the patio is not listed as living space.
This is a good way to add a room to your house because you already have a roof and a floor.
