Bedroom on Stilts 10 Degrees Cooler Than on the Ground (Feb, 1930)
Bedroom on Stilts 10 Degrees Cooler Than on the Ground
WHEN A. Winters, a Californian, needed a cooler sleeping place he built a bedroom on top of a forty-foot steel tower, up in the air where the breezes are blowing. The room is large enough for a bed, two chairs and a small table. It is reached by means of a small electric elevator through a trap door in the floor, a convenience suitable for many a two and three-story house. Records show that the temperature at the height of the sleeping room averages ten degrees cooler than on the ground and it is particularly suited for low regions where vapors and fogs lie close to the earth. The chamber makes an ideal place for reading or studying.
