Seaview Gardens: Summer 2016, Constructing Labour Day Project

As the heat intensifies, the changes on my mom’s house progresses.

I thought it too much, to expect us to bear this persistent summer’s heat under the present conditions. According to official weather records, earth has seen 12 straight months of record temperatures in 137 years, of record keeping. The planet is only getting hotter.

So, I am making major, but cost efficient changes to the house; until I can build us an AC-ed mansion on the hill.

Since Friday, I added on a patio or veranda section to the house, so that we can leave the original front door and windows open in the nights.

The construction is not yet complete, however, today there was a vast difference with the air circulation.

I will share the pictures below.
