The kids came up today and the weather wasn't good. Rather than crunch us into the trailer during the rain we decided to take chairs, the animals, and a little heater and spend the afternoon on the porch! If we weren't sure about the new windows, etc. before, we sure are now. We love it!!! With the windows and insulation, it's so quiet we'll have to crack a window to hear the wind in the trees and the waves. Our seasons will certainly be extended.
