One thing I want to add, is that 90% of our windows face the south so we get get a lot of sun at the hottest part of the day. We have black out shade of three of the windows, we hang a dark cover over one of the others, and I wish there was more we could do for our sliding glass doors.

Last year we hung a fan in the dinning room which helps. But we have found if he keep the house any warmer in the summer, we can’t stand it.
