i live in a building that is a leaky building. architects aren't engineers and they have a tendancy to make things that look pretty that are impracticable.

dad used to say.

the trouble is that wood is something that expands and contracts. it absorbs water. it dries out in the sun.

the measurements can't be as precise as an architect would suppose when they are drawing plans with a very fine pencil or pen with a calibrated ruler.

planks of wood just don't come that precise.

and there would be little point because of thermal expansion and so on.

he didn't quite put it like that. but the basic point was that the architects were dreamers.

anyhoo... there is a plan or style of building. medeterranian or something. and the problem is that the storm water guttering is not adequate to our climate. we get sort of tropical downpours periodically and you need a good system whereby water is quickly cleared and doesn't pool on a surface. don't get me started on mosquitos and maleria. i'm just thinking about things like rooftops. balconies. water pools because the sloping isn't adequate for it to drain properly. particularly with flat surfaces. and with the mederanian style the water actually gets inside the walls and drips down inside the walls. inside concrete. inside wood. and there's this black mold / fungus species that grows in nz. and it is toxic. gets in the lungs.

i can smell it a bit where i am. there is this dust...

i'ts all over, though. the last place i was in. again with the dust.

you need air conditioners with filtration. then clean out the filters. the dust.. grows. a fuzzy mould... it clogs the ventillation systems.

i suppose it's the low lying costal. it's supposed to be swampy. it's the liver or the kidneys or something. people aren't supposed to live in those climates.
