We went with concrete because it was cheaper, more durable, and easier. We will put a roof over it when we re-do the trailer roof in the spring.
It adds a lot of outdoor space for Judy and the view of the barn and pasture is very relaxing.
The covered front porch and deck about doubled the old one. Its also designed so that of in the future we need to make some modifications for mobility issues it could easily be done. As we are aging we are more aware of things like this and have taken that into consideration when we do things.
We still have to replace the fron door with one that swings inward and has a bigger window.
At some point we may screen it in....just one of many, many projects yet to be realized.
