Hell yes - do you know what manner of hell 38 degrees is when you dont have a proper air conditioner?
Well, errr umm actually I do!
Being a born n bred Namibian, the oldest desert in the world was for many years my backyard and playground.
We had no aircon. So my ever resourceful father painted the roof black thus adapting what the Bedouin knew only too well about wearing black garments.
The house was cool all year round. Not even the 'East Wind' that blew fiercely hot made a dent to the interior temperature. All doors and windows would be shut tight when the wind blew to prevent the dust /sand blowing in and as a result the house remained amicably cool inside.
So here I am in a cold UK where today the sun shone, it snowed and a few minutes ago, it tried to snow again but the snow clouds have skudded away and left a blue sky once again.
Go paint your roof!
that's awesome! your house changes, i mean.
i'd love to live in an adobe house, they're very cool inside and really pretty. especially those ones where the walls inside don't make sharp 90deg angles
