When (and how) Salt Attacks!This post was spurred on by work that I did illustrating hundreds of pages for our Construction Packet. As an illustrator, I spend extra time nailing down details, just to eliminate potential sources of confusion. While looking into salt weathering, I came across some...
Float On’s Halloween Spooktacular!‘Twas briny, and the epsom groves fluttered with salt-bats, a lurking fog floating atop the murky bog. From the dark maw of silence came a guttural groan, an eerie utterance akin to those of monsters. From the depths of darkness, that groan turned into what mortals...

What that means and why it helps can be a bit of a technical question, and the practical implementation can seem daunting and unreasonable.
Gut your space before construction!

As experts in only thinking about half of the consequences of our actions (at best), we’d like to say, “Incredibly hard, actually!”
