Natural air conditioning


BARN ROOF, HANKA FINNISH HOMESTEAD MUSEUM NEAR PELKIE, MICHIGAN, JULY 21, 2009

The fixup crew of this extremely rustic museum has yet to address the weathered and shrunken cedar shakes atop the barn, but they give the place an authenticity that fresh ground-up restoration just cannot achieve. You can almost sense the ghosts of the original settlers that came from Finland more than a century ago.

It is really nice to use natural air conditioning rather than electric. We can save big on electric bills, only fresh air from the environment we can breath and toxic free.
