Next time you're invited to our house for a meal, it just might be under our new shelter house. My mom & dad thought this might be a nice addition to our cooking/eating area outside, and I'm sure it will be. They had the contractor that put the roof on their house come over and put this up for us. Isn't it great? Of course, we got it finished just in time for the cold and wind and rain this week! We're checking into our options and cost for enclosing the sides. Then we would put a wood-burning stove inside to cook on and to provide heat during the colder months. Wouldn't that make a great place to go inside to warm up and have a cup of hot chocolate while you're out sledding and playing in the snow? And, of course, we already know it will make a great place to sit in the shade and picnic during the warmer months.
