Home in northern Wisconsin is a refuge. Whether a summer or weekend place or a full-time residence, we count on our homes to be a place to weather the storms of life.
When you return to your home in the evenings and on weekends, you want it to be a haven of safety, where you can forget about worries and hurriedness and just enjoy living. A place to recharge, restore, and refresh.
Unfortunately, there are things out there that threaten our homes which are mostly weather-related. Wind, sun, ice, snow, fire, heat, rain; all of these are things that can turn our homes from those places of rest into places of disruption and problems.
Weathering the Storms by Making Your Home Resilient
Similar to how we desire lives of resiliency, lives that can weather storms and re-group well after storms, there are things we can do to make our homes more resilient. We invite you to take a look at some of the things we can do to prepare our homes for uncertain times.
Starting with an Envelope of Protection, our list, explanations, and resources of things that help make your home more resilient addresses a wide range of ideas and challenges. The article comes from our partner, Isaiah Industries, No matter where you live, at least one of these disrupters could sadly come to your home and life:
- Temperature Extremes
- Rain and Floods
- Food and Water
- Loss of Power
Personal resilience, the ability to overcome and even thrive despite life’s circumstances, is a trait to be admired. With a little extra effort and following the ideas we’ve outlined in the Isaiah Industries Journal, you can make your home just as resilient as you are.
