New Taiji Lounge

Winters in Pennsylvania get a little tough.  It is really cold.  We have been wanting to add a viewing room to the indoor for some time now, but just never really had the time or resources to do it.  My mom found this absolutely amazing auction….a major manufactured homes builder was going out of business.  They had multiple warehouses of …
