This is the first question in what will become my WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! series.
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!! It comes with a good-sized aluminum shed. The seller told us that condensation forms on the ceiling during the winter (we have cool, rainy winters), so he kept everything in there covered with a tarp. I inspected the shed yesterday (WE GOT OUR KEYS!!), and did see some mildewy spots on the ceiling indicative of condensation.
Is there anything I can do to prevent the condensation from forming? [more inside]

Somebody left a piece of building material on our front porch this morning. We immediately assumed it had fallen off of our house somewhere but I can't see anything missing. Can AskMe identify what it is and where I should look? We're new homeowners and I'm growing paranoid that some critical piece of the weatherproofing has come off and I won't realize it until disaster strikes. [more inside]

The house I'm renting has very little storage space inside but has a huge deck. How much damage would I do to my stored items to keep them in plastic Rubbermaid containers on the deck? It doesn't snow here but it gets quite rainy.

I'm probably going to need to leave my air conditioner in the window during the '07-'08 winter, and I have a few questions about air conditioners and winter. [more inside]

I'm trying to find a service that will come to our house and help us evaluate where we are leaking heat, so we can wrap the house up as tightly as possible against our pending $500+ per month winter heating bills. However, I can't figure out who to call to do this -- even the yellow pages are no help. Everywhere I turn directs me to people who will insulate our house, but we just want help in evaluating how to insulate it ourselves. Is there a service that does this? What might it be called?
