To be selected as the winner in the Porch and Room category is a great honor. This structure was complex, but we were able to achieve the airy sunroom that integrated seamlessly with the existing home structure the homeowner was looking for. -Jim Finlay

Jim Finlay, owner of the Archadeck of Suburban Boston location in Boston, Massachusetts and his team were awarded Archadeck Outdoor Living’s Design Excellence award in the Porch and Room category. The winning project was sold and built under the direction of Mr. Larry Cohen, a member of the Archadeck of Suburban Boston team. The contest recognizes design excellence in several project categories among its franchise locations. As North America’s largest custom designer and builder of outdoor structures and spaces, Archadeck Outdoor Living has grown to a franchise network of over 50 locations across the United States and Canada.
Awarded annually, the Archadeck Design Excellence Award is awarded in different project categories including decking projects, hardscape or patio projects and porch and room projects. The winners of those categories are then entered to win the Design Excellence Award Grand Prize, which is determined by a collective vote by the Archadeck franchisee network.
“To be selected as the winner in the Porch and Room category is a great honor,” said Jim Finlay, the owner of the Suburban Boston location. “This structure was complex, but we were able to achieve the airy sunroom that integrated seamlessly with the existing home structure that the homeowner was looking for. To be recognized for this project means a lot to me and our team.”
Mr. Cohen’s winning project is an exquisite two story Sunroom design that integrates a sunny upper room with lower storage area, a two story entryway, dramatic staircase as well as a decorative alcove. The interior stairs look like they’re floating and have a glass rail system with Ipe posts and a handrail that reflect the wall sconce design. The lower level room is accessible via a breezeway and provides the homeowners with a large protected area for storage. The fit and finish of this addition are superb on their own while creating a new living space that is integrated so it looks like it was an original part of the home.
“We are proud to present this award to Jim Finlay, Larry Cohen and the entire Archadeck of Suburban Boston team,” stated Mike Reeder, VP of the Archadeck Outdoor Living Brand. “Their level of expertise and design is clearly evident in this project and can serve as design inspiration for the entire Archadeck franchise system.”
