Noise is the enemy, and it’s always trying to get its way inside your house I’m not a big fan of noise, in the same way I’m not a big fan of pests. The only people who seem to find their way around each of those things are people with more money and skills than me. And even though they get by with less, I know the difference in the damage they can do. There’s no way I can get around it. My home is noisy – or maybe, more importantly, the noises I hear are annoying. The walls echo, the windows moan, the house breathes on cold nights. I’m so busy trying to get around the noise of the summer I barely notice it. Until I don’t.
