    Looks like incredible fit and finish on this unit. Way to go! Nice little touches here and there. That’s a really cool idea to have the screen come down over the back windows for both viewing and privacy. Too bad it can’t go all the way down. Curious how well the little stove does to heat this unit but perhaps there’s a split system I didn’t see?Love the decor and colors and tons of light coming in.
