    Well that's one benefit of having a house that was built by a Greek family - there's a small room on the lower floor that is south facing and double brick - most likely for the purpose of storing bottled sauces etc.

    Sounds like the perfect spot for my skins!

    Perfect. In summer we take them out of the warehouse and store them in the insulated, airconditioned office.

    You can make skin savers easily enough. Wilderness Sports have both Contour mesh and foil skin savers. You can leave them stuck to themselves but best for summer to use a backing.

    Yep as per preceding comments. Cool dry place.
