Sun Block for Renters



Above: An Emergency Survival Blanket has been temporarily attached to a casement window, as viewed from outside.



As viewed from inside, the Emergency Survival Blanket is partially transparent.



One half of an Emergency Survival Blanket (about $2 for a 47" x 84" blanket) was temporarily applied to a 3' x 4' window. Best-Test One Coat rubber cement was brushed around each pane, and allowed to dry. Once the silver-blanket film was adhered to the One Coat, excess film was cut off using a single-edge razor blade.

Temp Fence









We like these linking fence panels (~$26 for a set of 2 at Lowe's), but we think they could be easier to install. We're working on a hack that will make the post heights to the ground adjustable, with post holes that are flush to the ground. In the meantime, Chica is enjoying a tether-less yard.
