Better than TV
In Minnesota, the winters can be rough, but the summers are wonderful. Short, but wonderful! However, despite our front porch and back deck, it's almost impossible to enjoy relaxing evenings outside, sipping on a glass of wine, due to the influx of mosquitoes that inhabit our state. Therefore, we have decided to have a screened-in 3 season porch built off our kitchen, covering our old deck and also extending it, so that we still have an outside area to BBQ on.
They started work 2 days ago, tearing out the old wood. "Breaking it!" Max yelled. The kids have an unobstructed view of the work being completed from the kitchen door, and they are quite entertained by it.
I wonder if baybsitting fees are factored into the overall cost of the project.
