My experience exactly. I am glad we still have inexpensive options. Enjoy the view and even the night life.

Wonderful article. I got more out of the comments than the article but I overlook an ugly back yard and neighbours on three sides overlook me , so I will look into all these - cheaper - solutions and choose what is best for each room. Thanks very much.
