Certainly not too windy today. It is right up against the wall of the next door unit, so wind is blocked from the side. I would have been very upset if the grills were gone! For us, anyway, since they know that we grill out a lot, the grill was on the deck when we got here. Supposedly, they may store them in the atrium, if they aren't being used, but I don't know.

Grills right up against the walls of the units are dangerous. You must have 7-8 ft on three sides for safety. The space above must also not be covered. This info comes directly from the fire department. Perhaps they need to think about that. Not good to see all those renovated units go up in smoke!

I could be having a senior moment but I thought the exterior walls at BSV were concrete. If not, I don't think there's any way they have the room on those porches to meet 7 to 8 foot clearance requirements. But I'm sure they've taken all this into consideration.

We would be with Laurel and totally in agreement about the breezes being our preference over airco unless there were no breezes at all. I hate the closed in feeling and that's why we love our high unit at the Towers - as there's no need to shut the sliders at night and we are able to take full advantage of the wonderful breezes. I think we only had the airco running the day we arrived while unpacking and the evening before we left while we were packing up again.

Yes, the walls are concrete. Regarding air conditioning, we live in Florida and we live in air conditioning year round. And again, if you want the breezes, just keep the front and back doors open.

Been too lazy to take any pictures so far, except at dinner last night. Will definitely have to take some pictures today, as Saba, she be there!! The a/c in the main room works REALLY well. It's a bigger unit than the ones in the bedroom.

Carol, how long are you there?

From your description of the renovation and the fact there is now a/c in the living room, I wish I hadn't booked our additional nights at The Summit. Part of that decision was the a/c issue while watching tv. And I for one don't mind a tv in bedroom...I can wake up and watch news, or fall asleep watching the World Series in October.

We will go home before you arrive, unfortunately. If your reservation is cancellable, you could check to see if they have space here. Normally they don't do shorter stays, but this late, they might have room. You could check. I was going to take pictures of the unit today, but I guess the maids are off today. Maybe I'll get off my lazy hiney and pick up a bit and take some pictures..

OUTSTANDING weather today.

As far as TV in the bedroom, I asked Marvlyn and she said no on that. We don't have a TV in the bedroom at home, so don't miss it here, since we can watch at night in the a/c. Today we have the doors wide open as usual, as there is a lovely breeze.

You guys will love the renovations, Louise! It just seems so much bigger inside and the a/c works really well in the living room.
