The living room area of our great room measures 14 ft in long and 13 ft. wide. I'm at a loss on how to lay out the room. The room has a picture window on the wall to the left of the sofa
and straight across are sliding glass doors to the back yard. It has a 14 inch set back behind the TV. I would like to make this room comfortable for my children and grandchildren when they visit. I am not sure what will work in this small area. The kitchen is open to the living room. The rooms are divided by a snack bar. Other then that everything is open. When your seated on the the sofa the kitchen is straight in front of you. Any advice you could offer would be so appreciated. Thank you..Gail

If you could draw up and post a schematic of the room it might be more helpful. Also, which
directions are the windows and sliding doors facing?
HELP?!?!? So should we mesh the airholes on the side of the house that they are coming in through, or let them be? Someone told us to let them be and welcome them since they will keep mosquitoes away, but REALLY how many mosquitoes can 3-4 little Bats keep away??? I really do not want them telling all their little Bat friends that we have a great B&B they can stay at!

Yea, I agree with Steve. Lure them out and give them an alternative place to live. You never
want to run the risk of one coming into the house and you accidentally getting scratched or bitten. they rarely carry rabies but it's better to be safe than sorry. But a bat house would keep all parties safe and happy.
