In our effort to cover up every square inch of our one acre lot, Vince wants to build something . . I’m not even sure what you call it. I guess it’s a pergola type structure. He explained to the guy what he’s wanting and this is one the builder found and this is their starting point.
I’m not sure I see the point – especially since we have a deck off the main level and a patio under the deck. I asked him what we’d use it for and he said “sitting out or grilling”. So, he’s going to take the food, go downstairs, walk out the door, grill. Bring it back in, bring it upstairs? The grill currently is on the back deck and he walks from the kitchen through the sunroom onto the deck and grills. I don’t see that happening. We could sit on the deck or on the patio if we had furniture.
This is one idea I’m not sure of the value or utility but if he wants it . . that’s fine with me. If we had a pool, I could see having this by the pool. We don’t have a pool, nor do we have a place for a pool.
I think he said it’s going to be 16 x 16 because that’s as big of an area where they can pour concrete. I kinda hope he re-thinks this plan but watch . . he’ll do it and it will be the place we spend most of our time. That’s why he makes the decisions . . mine are rarely right!
