Thanks for that reality check Double D! It's handy to be aware of how much maintenance is involved before committing to a purchase.

Some lovely spaces.
However we really should not be heating open areas - most of the heat and therefore energy, will be wasted. If you need heating, it is probably time to move back indoors.

Yes your right Mira, must admit when I have cleaned and hosed everything it looks great.... but always fighting the elements to keep it looking good is a challenge. I have thought of enclosing both sides and making it more of an outdoor room, but have never got round to it. Lol
