Having heating and cooling in that space would add value to the house.
I have been pushing my husband to add a deck onto our house. Right now we have a side door that has a small little pad and stairs. Basically you have enough room to stand and look out at the woods. Other than that, the side door is pointless. I want the stairs to lead to a much larger pad and be a deck. I have patio furniture that could sit on it and I would like the grill there as well. It would additionally be nice to keep my garbage cans and recycling bins in there. Right now they just lay in my yard looking horrible. I really would like to enclose the deck though. I want to have a room so the rain wouldn’t affect me when I sit out there. Having it screened would be really nice. I could keep bugs out and get a breeze. If I am being honest, I really want to have it totally enclosed with windows. I then would want a ductless mini split unit. I could have it be a separate cooking area or an enclosed gym if I wanted to. Hot southern summers or cold winters wouldn’t affect our deck time. Having heating and cooling in that space would add value to the house. It does add quite a bit more money onto the project though. So I don’t know if I can convince my husband that adding walls, windows and a HVAC unit are the smart move. I might just get a wood deck and that is it. I could be happy with that.
