Tks for the attaboy, Steve…well the name of the thread is ‘optimization’ so I just threw in a few tips. I’m working yet again this fall… attic ventilation, underfloor insulation, always trying to keep things in check, oh yeah gotta get those 2 long axles out from under the doublewide, been there 30 yrs. or more, cobwebs everywhere.
I guess I’m lucky, but I have wood storage area right by the house, so, the firewood stays outside of my place till it gets thrown in the fire. LOL…it can get pretty buggy sometimes if I let that stuff warm up by the stove, so for me, the firewood goes in— bugs, fungus, and all. Naturally I wish all my firewood was hard & dry and therefore bug free…but I burn the cheap wood with the good stuff.
As for those wet dogs, you might try thrashing them with some wild mint or something before they get in the house…lol, well I guess it beats the smell of polyurethane curing.
