..and home improvement.

As Spring progresses,and Summer begins to rear it's sultry head,the weather here in O-Town is getting decidedly warmer.
The nights however,remain cool,crisp,and refreshing!
What with the price of everything from Sling's Domain,to cheese and rice on the rise,(Yeah,..a burrito suddenly becomes a major financial commitment),Lizzard King and I have decided to introduce a new concept in Summer cooling to the homestead.
Something that doesn't require great buttloads of electricity to operate.
Something that will help keep the joint at a comfortable temperature,and at the same time,save some o' that precious energy you've heard tell about.

We like to call it,..'Fresh air'!..

Keeping in mind that there be womenfolk about that deserve some measure of personal security,we've gone about replacing this!,..


..and by 'we',..I mean,Lizzard King..

With this state of the art titanium deadbolt,and wrought iron marvel!

It functions wonderfully,in tri-fold fashion.

A) It allows us to keep cool at night,without running the swamp cooler.
B) We're able to incarcerate Little Newt securely behind bars,..PLUS!
3) It prevents nefarious types from gaining easy access to the interior of our home while we sleep,and having their way with me.

We're having BBQ'd chicken tonight!

I want one of those doors, but I am too lazy to figure out how they go on.

Fresh air, what a concept!!

You, and by you I mean LK, should provide instructions for installation.

That's right. Access to you ought to be a hell of a lot harder.

That's a very beautiful door. Not to mention, I feel safer already.

We gonna BBQ when we're there? (crosses little fingers and hopes and hopes and hopes)

Great idea! It's not only utilitarian but pretty to look at. I'd bar my own screen doors if I could find something that looks that good. Wishing you great sleeping weather! And please save me a BBQ chicken leg.:)

Sage-It's easier than it looks.
It mounts on the exterior of the door frame,so you don't have to have an exact fit.

Yellerdawg G.- I was tryin' to figure out what the hell you were talkin' about,and then I realized you can't really see the wire mesh on the door.
Don't worry,no skunks or bugs. :)

jan- Installation is easy.
You just grab a camera,and tell LK to do it.

booda babe-See!..This is what I'm sayin'

Rainey- Ha!..This is a great neighborhood,the occasional propane powered bicycle bandit notwithstanding.
....and you bet we're gonna barbeque!
LK is a wizard with steaks,and brats,and chicken,and burgers..oh my.

serena joy- My old man used to say,'it should be useful,as well as decorative'.This thing qualifies.
..I ate yer chicken leg for lunch.Sorry.

Having their way with you? Uh-oh..like they did with your bike n the porch? Well for Pete's sake, it's a darn good thing you got one of them iron doors an' all. Shoot-howdy.....looks like it keeps critters inside too as well! :^)
Enjoy your chicken BBQ. yummo

Fresh air is a lovely idea. Which utility company do you pay for your fresh air usage?
A lovely home like yours is enhanced by such an elegant entryway. House and Garden magazine may want to come and take pictures.

You know, Sling, just because I mentioned on someone else's blog what a hunk-a-hunk-a-burning love I thought you were does NOT mean you had to resort to these kinds of measures. Geez. A simple sign saying "Grannys Back Off" would have sufficed.

:)

Love the door,though. I'm trying to talk my husband into installing a screen door out back. I would love to feel "real" air occasionally - without having to actually leave the house, of course. lol

CS- hopefully,It will help keep me from being spirited away like my bike,although I think most kidnappers would find me too high maintenance.

mom- We're expecting a fresh air bill from PG&E just as soon as they figure out how to put a meter on the wind.

kari- So you're my stalker!
I feel a lot better knowing I have deadbolt on my screen door!..and a spare key.under the big rock..next to the ceramic frog...No,the orange one.

Nice job LK! I avoid screens due to da bears.. but it would be awfully nice to have one. And I'm sure Newt appreciates the fact that dad and Sling can bolt him in.

Until 1998 we always had a screen door...as a kid we had one that slammed and I loved to drive my mother crazy going in and out (getback). In Idaho however when one has a weird front door designed by a spouse and the door ends up in the garage...well, no screen door.

 
At 10:01 PM , Blogger Sling said...

doralong- Oh those pesky bears!
This screen is pretty damm sturdy,but All we have to deal with is hungry blue-jays.

rosemary- I remember back in the day.
My little brother and I would run in and out of the great wooden screen door,attached to the doorframe by a giant steel spring.It made the most satisfying 'SLAM'!!..Good times.

Screen doors are a blessing from the cooling gods. If things get really sticky, go full on tacky and hang a wet sheet in front of the screen for some instant AC.

beauty, and it's a lot quieter than having an antisocial dog sleeping at the door.

 
At 8:55 PM , Blogger yellowdog granny said...

oh...there's a screen there...cool..keep the skunks out..ahah

Hi! I'm an annoying spambot and I'm here to tell you about my great new website where you can buy Fresh Air and all your Fresh Air needs.

I emlarged it but couldn't tell if it had mozzie screen on it. It didn't look like it... do you get mosquitos over there...most of us are really aware because of theRoss River Fever and other awful diseases they of late seem to be passing on to us...

love the dog food bowls right at the door, thats where I keep mine...

BBQ'd chicken...mmmm

Wow, I go away for a few days and you remodel the entire joint. Nice digs, Sling! Now, depending upon how long ago the face lift took place, you know how long it's been since I've been in the neighborhood. I do miss you, Sling. I'll try to visit more often. But I have to get my bearings in the new digs - I feel kinda like you in your new bifocals.

I'm incredibly jealous of anyone who has to consider "cooling needs" for "summer". [curls up in corner and sobs]
