Protecting a Home from 5G

Protecting your home from 5G emf with natural protection via Mother Nature, Paints, Window Films, Foil Bubble Wrap...

I noticed in Europe they were cutting trees down to make way for the coming 5G towers that are planned for the area. It didn't take me long to figure out that Tree Leaves interfere with 5G.



In case you don't have a green thumb or do not like plants growing all over your Home there are other ways to protect a home from the 5G frequencies.  

5G Protection with Paint

Double Foil Back Bubble Wrap for Energy Efficiency and EMF protection 



A previous - Energy Efficient- bedroom remodel project for a building on The Hill in StLouis. I installed a Double Foil Bubble Wrap (similar to the product from Menards above) behind the drywall in the walls and ceiling. The owners reported that cell phone connection was virtually impossible in this room and when they were in the room it felt good.  


Once again putting 2+2 together; I feel the Metal Foil Bubble Wrap Energy Efficiency Barrier was the reason they felt good because they were not subject to the EMF frequencies bombarding their home when they were in this room.


Don't Forget the Windows!

5G Frequency Block Curtains or Window Films https://buff.ly/2Eih8w1
Don't forget your windows Curtains or Window Films block emf: via google: “Using anti-radiation curtains or curtain liners will block up to 100% of EMF radiation coming into your home through the windows. ” https://buff.ly/2Eih8w1


Curtains only stop the EMF frequencies when they are closed


When the window shades are open; to stop the EMF frequencies you will need a Window Film or Window Tinting. I can't personally vouch for this but when I lived in Arizona and Kirksville Missouri I ran a Window Tinting Business, one of the highlights of a metalized window film was they stopped sound devices from snooping from prying ears. I just sent a message to LLumar Window Films for current information about any products they may recommend for this situation. I noticed via a google search that other companies have window films that stop EMF but I have never used their products.

Will the People in StLouis who live in all these cool old brick buildings have anything to worry about? 

I don't know for sure, but I bet Masonry Buildings will stop 5G. I will update this blog if I learn differently.

What about Green Roofs with Soil and Grass? or Vegetables? 

Would it even be ok to eat a vegetable that was inundated by 5G waves? 

Both of the above questions are things I will be researching and will update this 2000th EMF blog post when I learn more.

If you or someone you know is suffering from 5G or planning to protect your StLouis Home from the coming onslaught of 5G frequencies feel free to contact me by email or the blog contact form and I will respond with various solutions and techniques to counter the emf signals affecting your home.

Video and Examples 6 Warning Signs of an Unsafe Deck

Examples of repairs mentioned in this video.  Per the video, the Number 1 Cause of Deck Failure is the Ledger Board coming unattached to the home.  In StLouis, many of the decks are attached to a Masonry Building here are photos and the steps on a prior deck repair that were needed to ensure a Deck Ledger Board Collapse did not happen from a poorly attached main support board.
https://stlouisrenewableenergy.blogspot.com/2016/07/deck-failure-fixed-prevented-building.html






Here is another connection point mentioned in the video and the repair that saved the homeowner $6,000 dollars.  The Client had 2 Bids as suggested:  

Rebuild Deck Bid 1............................$38,000

Replace Deck Posts Only Bid 2.........$8,000.  

I was the third bid and beat the lowest bid by $6,000.

https://stlouisrenewableenergy.blogspot.com/2015/08/saving-deck-and-cash.html

This was a huge deck and had a total of 37 Posts.  After viewing this image I realized the Concrete did not fit with the Esthetics of the Home. I then stained the concrete to match! Here is the link to the project photos 


This blog post: 

Saving a Deck from the Landfill (part 1 of 3 part blog series) was yet another Deck Repair by Scotty-Scotts Contracting and the deck repairs were safety issues that prevented a future Deck Collapse.


Because the Deck was not built to current Building Codes the St Louis Building Code Department required- 
"Bring the Deck to Current Building Codes or Tear it Down"

Off Grid in the City



Blog Series Off-Grid StLouis Style

This blog post will highlight how it all works together for getting Off-Grid StLouis Style without scrimping on the Must Haves of Hot Water, Heat, and Electricity.
Highlighted in a few prior blog posts- burning wood can produce Hot Water From Your Wood Stove for Blazing Hot Showers (which works off the Stove Pipe of the Wood Burning Stove or fireplace). As well as how to Turn a wood stove into a fuel source for creating a propane type fuel source that will operate gasoline engines such as a generator (Gasifier). 

Must Have 1] Hot Water

    This hot water heating system produces hot water that will stay warm up to 48 hours!
    • Article Link:  Three years ago, we were sitting in our cabins wondering how we could satisfy our addictions for hot baths and showers, without paying ridiculous prices for disappearing reserves of fossil fuels. Putting our talents together (one of us is a mechanical wizard and the other a Ph.D. chemist), we devised a homestead alternate energy system — based on the use of otherwise-wasted stovepipe heat — that's allowed us to take those hot baths. We call our system the Blazing Showers Stovepipe Hot Water Heater. See Build Tips here: https://stlouisrenewableenergy.blogspot.com/2010/02/hot-water-from-your-woodstove.html



    Must Have 2] Heat Wood Stove 




    Must Have 3] Electricity
    • Options
      • Connected to the Grid
      • Photovoltaic Solar System

      • Gas or Gasifier Generator
        • Energy Source: Biomass - Firewood Donated by the neighbor tree trimmers and upcycled from job sites.  

    How to build a "Wood Gasifier" from propane tanks, to power a "Tiny House"!


    How to build a "Wood Gasifier" from propane tanks, to power a "Tiny House"!

    This is how to build your own Wood Gas producing wood stove that can be used to run a vehicle or generator, this works for replacing propane in most standard propane appliances. This simple unit was made from three small propane tanks and scrap material.



    We have also upgraded to 12volt LED wiring and lighting setup in a few spots of the home!  A complete LED lighting system would reduce Electricity needs by 50%.  

    In upcoming blog posts, I will share how this process and system all work together and allows the Homeowner to live 

    Off-Grid StLouis Style!
