My Half Project - Window Shades
34... I thought the answer was supposed to be 42, but 34 seems to be the number of shades that have been installed on the south facing windows. The shades do not cover the transom windows so a lot of light will still be able to enter all of the downstairs rooms. I also didn't install shades on windows that are mostly in the shade of the upstairs deck. I'll start closing these when it gets warm enough for the AC to kick on. I'm interested in what affect these will have on the hot summer months.
