Catio Case Study

Catio – Patio – Sunroom – Room Extension

Homeowner requested a 12×10 foot outdoor patio.  The patio modifications turned this project into a catio which is a patio for cats.  She indicated she wanted 3 picture frame windows which would bring in a lot of sun and turning it also into a sunroom.

In additional, the catio would have:

  • electrical wiring
  • an AC/Heater unit
  • cat shelves
  • swing installation
  • vinyl flooring installation
  • 2 cat doors installed

The outside structure needed to match the existing house with the same siding, paint and slanted roof.
