You may recall a year or so ago, July, August, and September of 2008, I posted about the construction of a wall in front of our house. Well, that wall has been in place just over a year and oh my goodness what a difference it has made!
The house is so much cleaner, cooler, quieter than before, and the little front garden is so cute and makes such a pleasant transition from street to inside.
We are now able to keep the doors and windows open most all of the time. The additional air flow has decreased the interior heat by a huge amount – so much so that this year, the hottest, driest year in over 25 years has been cooler than the past 2 years. All because of the airflow. Add to that the decrease in street noise, and the decrease in dust and dirt. What a difference! Money Well Spent.
Our wall, much like the successes of Ghengis Khan although they may appear astounding, they are explainable by ordinary means.
