Shed House

Russian house

One might think this houses in Smolensk city, Russia are preparing for their summer skin shedding, and become more brown.

In reality that’s how the local house maintainers are making houses coldproof. They just put raw PU foam on the walls, around the flats and with some time the fawn-coloured foam starts looking like this brownish substance.

  1. Absolutely useless exercise. Does not help and looks so ugly. Person who came up with this idea must have skipped school and be on temporary leave from mental institute ! And people in building must be numbed…. how can you let someone do this to your house.

    • This foam will dissolve / get brittle / turn to dust fast because of UV rays in sunlight. Is not to be used in exposed to light areas.

      • Wrong. Not all foam reacts this way. for instance, packing styrofoam is resistant to the sun. Also, I guess you didn’t read, this is a seasonal thing meaning it’s used for one season only.
