Upstairs we have a “paradise room” (indoor/outdoor room with screens on two sides, metal construction) which contains a kitchenette and small bathroom. It has a beautiful view and I’d love it to be our main kitchen/dining area. Does anyone know what’s involved in converting it to a main living area?
