After few months of debating and getting few high quotes for installing a screened in porch, we decided to go ahead and stick with the gazebo.
The old one was destroyed during the microburst of August 2015 and we needed something pretty and functioning for this summer.
The deck got a new coat of paint, Andrzej put up the gazebo and we splurged on the new patio set. The old one was falling apart and lacking one chair.
I must say I am very happy with the outcome and so far this is my favorite room for the summer !
