From the front side this is what you see, pretty much nothing. The back side facs the alley and no one goes back there but the garbage man and me to crank the handle on my Sun-Mar unit so I am not real concerned with the ugliness :). It il get me through winter. I should add, there is a heater in the toilet unit, if I need more then I can throw a little radiant heater down there too. I just have to keep the space above 32 degrees!
