Does it really take a war for conservation?

Well, 1942 would be good role model for 2017 when it comes to energy conservation. But I guess as long as there is no need, there is no must.

Interesting that the worker is actually using a mask. And a ventilated one at that. With something as "harmless" as ordinary rockwool. If only they had kept that up when asbestos became all the rage.

The good ol' days

of full dimension lumber.
