1) Love deck. You need the 3 seasons door to get most use and not have to close up. Keeps heat in (well sort of) and brightens up whole room. When we get where we are going, the Trike gets the boot, carpet goes down, and wife takes over and starts quilting. Definitely glad for deck awning (prevent rain into garage despite 3 season door). Yes, too much money but oh well, only get to enjoy for a few more years.
2) Often get below freezing weather as we migrate from New York to FL and back. The insulated glass/dual pane is a must, especially given the area of glass on our 395 AMP Thunderbolt. Tanks are heated,
we keep water heater on. Only problem (that I will fix) is the capped drains hang down and freeze. Need to put shutoffs inside.
