I’ve lived in my condo for 10 years. 8 of it was with a roommate, who was the former owner. Most of the time we could have cared less about the back porch. And even still, I’ve never had a real reason to sit back there. And truth be told, a few years ago, we had someone climb on and take a plastic chair. Its a long story about the house next door having a fire, and Chelsea being.. well Chelsea. I really don’t anticipate a problem, but it’s all metal and lately anything metal grows feet sooooooo yeah, to use the space always required setup/take down.
