Doing college classes outside

In college when the weather starts to turn warmer, sometimes classes are held outside. I never want the class to go outside. For starters that means we have to walk really far to find a place for us all to sit. Then we need to find an area that is shaded so we aren’t sweating […]

Cold air and insulation

In our new house, we have an attic that is fairly large.  It’s not finished or anything, but we mostly use it to keep our stuff that we don’t use very much.  However, recently, I’ve had to start spending extended periods of time up there because we are trying to put down some flooring on […]
