The owners of this home decided to convert their spa into a bedroom to help attract more buyers when they put it on the market. Shortly into the addition project, significant rot was discovered below the single pane windows. The scope grew significantly. The repair work was made more difficult given the fact that this room is three stories off the ground. Done to Spec performed all the repair and addition work, with the exception of the new carpet.
