I’ve lived in wood and drywall houses all of my life, until we decided to look for house rentals in Tijuana.
The first few years living in a concrete house were brutal because I didn’t realize how cold Tijuana could get, being next to the Pacific.
But we adjusted, and now we know that the concrete eventually warms in the warm afternoon sun.
Tip: don’t forget to open the windows a bit each day to keep the mold out. We had so much mold in our first Tijuana rental, that we had to spray bleach all over the ceiling and then scrap and scrub for hours.
And then came the California fires and I’ve never looked at wood built houses the same.
So I’ve come to appreciate concrete as a building material.
We are more secure from local fires in our cozy concrete dwelling, and we have better soundproofing from the loud (ahem LOUD) local sound systems.
