enclosed patio room leaking

Hello, my husband enclosed our existing patio with a wood siding. The roof is actually part of the roof of the house and not simply an attached roof. The prblem is that there is water seepage around the edges of the floor. Do you have any suggestions for ways to waterproof this? I would like to use this as a bedroom, but with the water seepage, it is impossible. Thank you, Lisa

As a beginning, You should lower the grade around the patio so the water can drain away, rather than building up.

After you get the water away, you can asses the feasibility of using the area as a legal bedroom.
