    The InVENTion

    Today Chirs, Tor, and Mark invented home made vents for the Rain House. The vents are a simple design that uses hinges, hooks, chain, weather stripping and the power of magnets.The vents will be placed in the pony wall to help with the passive cooling during the summer nights. The Rain House has a roof pitch that causes the hot air to collect on the south side. When the vents are opened the collected hot air will be vented, hence the name, out and allow the house to cool down faster then it normally would. Tomorrow the vents will begin to be installed.
