summers, was Cob: Re: Re: Time and cost?Patrick Newberry PNewberry at HFHI.org

I live in middle georgia and the summers are both hot and muggy. I've combated this problem by making sure that air flow if very good. In addition to adding a vent in my dome at the top, I also have a fan that blows into the house on the north side of the building, and will have one that blow out on the southside of the building. (last summer it was only a vent, no fan on the south side). The house was always cooler during the day, relative to the outside, but at night or at least when the sun first went down, outside would feel nicer. By bed time, with the fan running it would be fine.

This is not something I'd considered. Oklahoma summers are long and miserable, and night doesn't usually bring much relief. Do the rest of you confirm Vicki's oven analogy? That might be a deciding factor, although it might break my heart. Thank you!
