domestic: related to the running of a home
engineering: the application of scientific principles to design and build things of value
Welcome to the beta-test version domestic-engineering.com, a blog about applying engineering principles to household management problems.
This is an unusual personal finance and lifestyle blog in that I make no attempts to tell anyone what to do. Instead of tackling a problem by giving a recommendation, I try to tackle problems by describing the world as accurately as possible. Sometimes that means a bit of math, physics, thermodynamics, physiology, or medicine. Regardless of the topic, my goal is to explain the subject without shying away from relevant technical details. Plenty of other blogs do that, this one does not.
The site went live in late June 2019 and its format is still a work in progress. The content will hopefully continue to be a work in progress for many years to come.
Consider starting with the introduction article:
