Magazine Articles – June 2020

I’ve not added to this blog since pre-pandemic times, and am also taking a break from writing DIY articles, and deadlines in general. There is an article called Harness The Winter Sun in The Owner Builder No.218 (June-August 2020), in which I’ve looked at effective passive solar heating – in this article, with a special emphasis on eave design to get sun into your house when you need it, but keep it out in summer – and a warning about Australia’s beloved north-facing verandah, which often greatly reduces the amount of potential solar heating. Brett’s lovely illustrations for this article show visually what the problems are.
