Mosaic tile in the sunroom
In early 2012 we took out the carpeting and installed this mosaic floor in the three season room. It is primarily south facing and on the east side of the house, next to the kitchen. It has one vent for heating and cooling, but it does get colder than the rest of the house in the winter. This was the "dog room" until recently, and is now the "bunny room." It was a godsend to have the option to leave the dogs at home if we needed to be gone all day. Inside they had cool floor, soft dry beds and water, but they could go outside any time they wanted. My good LGD, Java, preferred to sleep here so she could keep the hens safe! Since this picture was taken we removed the doggy door and refinished the wall boards.
We've replaced the windows on the east side of the room, but the windows on the south side of the room should still probably be replaced. We have the windows, already purchased, in the hangar but we are leaving their installation to the next owners. I was recently asked if the property had any big projects that needed to be done, and replacing these windows is the only thing I could think of.
What you don't see in this picture is the mud room, between the garage entrance and this space. In there we've installed a large deep sink, for washing produce, and a wide shallow sink on the floor for washing dogs, boots, and whatever. Both have Grohe faucets. The two sinks share a massive debris trap that is easily accessed from the woodshop in the basement.
