The daily routine in winter begins with opening the blinds on the north face of the house to let in as much sun as possible to provide passive warming.
And depending on the outside air temperature we will keep the remaining blinds closed to avoid colder outside air transferring through the glass and making the house cold.
In summer we need to protect the house from the summer sun’s rays. So we will re-install the removable shade sails,
roll down the external blinds…
and reinstall the shade cloth on the solarium.
