Protect your home with this ergonomic design

If you live in an area where hurricanes are prevalent, you know the importance of covering windows with plywood before a storm hits. To make the task easier, Club member Andy Hodkinson of Henderson, Texas, uses this tip he learned from his father: He drills finger holes through the faces of his plywood hurricane shutters. Besides making it easier to grip the shutters, the holes release air pressure during a hurricane. Of course, hurricane shutter requirements vary depending on the construction of your house. Always check with local building officials or with the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the best methods of shutter construction and installation.
