“My wife and I spend the latter part of summer and fall building this sun room off the side of our house. There used to be an old deck there so we decided to make it a usable room. The rafters and glass were purchased fromm Pacific Sun Rooms but pretty well everything else from the sub floor to the tongue and groove pine and cedar laminate flooring and siding came from Windsor. I got to know the employees pretty well. We even insulated the walls and ceiling and it all came from Windsor in Fort St. John B.C. They are a great bunch of people.”
