It's gonna be a hot one today in DC. We're talking 99 degrees, no big deal in Houston, but unusual for around here. Bodes for a hot summer, frankly. Since we can't really afford to run the air conditioner, that means open windows. Not a good idea with a curious, death defying 3 year old, and a three story drop in the back.
I'd thought of building sets of cage like "bars" to go into each window using a bunch of painted 1x2s, but the forecast means fans upstairs. So I guess I'll be building "fan frames" instead, to get them to block "thru access" to the window and hold up the box fans. Anyone gone through this one? Any design ideas? I did get a few of those side by side fans that fit in the window, but they're 25 bucks each, vs. 11.99 for box fans, and I've got 10 upstairs windows to do...
