I'm a wimp when it comes to summer heat.

This flat/house is lovely and I'm grateful but damn it's hot hot hot in the summer. We have 8 skylights to add to the misery and the sun beats in all day and brings the temperature up to the 80s inside.

I had a lightbulb moment and bought some black-out fabric online at 13 yds for about $50. Black out fabric is the stuff that hotels use on the outer facing of their curtains to keep light out. A little work with the sewing machine and....

Voila, relief from the heat. It's not air conditioning but it's at least 10 degrees cooler inside now.
