The little bugs have been worse than usual in the Adirondacks this summer. We mentioned this in passing to my aunts while they were visiting. As it turns out they had a very fancy Casita screen room just sitting in their garage since the late 1970's. It looks like 11 screen doors that accordian out to make a room.
The screens are in wonderful shape but the vinyl roof is mildewy and scary. My plan is to see if the roof is cleanable and if not we'll attempt to create a new one. A new roof sells for about $300. The screenhouse itself sells for almost $500.
With a little elbow grease and creativity, this may be the best $500 I didn't spend.
