  • Haint blue


    A haint blue porch ceiling in the United StatesHaint blue is a pale shade of blue that is traditionally used to paint porch ceilings in the Southern United States. The tradition originated with the Gullah in Georgia and South Carolina, but has also been adopted by White Southerners. The ceiling of the slave quarters at the Owens-Thomas House in Savannah, Georgia, built in the early nineteenth century, was painted haint blue. The pigment was sourced from crushed indigo plants. Indigo was a common source for haint blue prior to the American Revolution, when indigo was a common crop for plantations in the American South, but the tradition survived well after the decline in indigo cultivation.

  • Storm window


    Storm windows are windows that are mounted outside or inside of the main glass windows of a house. It may also refer to a small openable flap found in the side window on light aircraft. On houses they serve as a retrofit on existing windows in order to improve their thermal insulation and soundproofing. Similarly, storm doors (also called "screen doors") allow similar energy savings with less efficient primary doors – and allow a screen for summer ventilation. Storm windows can be mounted externally or internally; can be made of glass, rigid plastic panels, or flexible plastic sheets; and may be permanently or temporarily mounted. They function similarly to insulated glazing. Aside from insulation, storm windows provide an additional measure of protection for homes against damages to costly glass panes during inclement weather.
