I've always had iffy feelings about our family room (now dining room) and a part of our backyard. The former I hate going past at night, though if I look over I swear it appears darker somehow. It also seems to block Wifi and other radio signals to an extent (I have horrid luck using an FM broadcaster from my iPod to my shortwave sitting right next to it.) We also report being colder there than the rest of the house.
The latter I outright refuse to go in or even look at at night. I've gotten a little braver about it, but something gives me huge creeps and I can barely stand it. No one else seems to, though, but I'm usually pretty good about handling the dark, so its not that either.
Mostly, I keep a nightlight because I'm a klutz.
Anyone else got an idea?
And no, the backyard and family room are in no way connected, i.e. right next to each other, though the yard does wrap around the house and to the side of the room.
I also remember my room always seemed to be cold when I was younger, but I'm convinced it's either bad luck (it never gets any sun past 10 AM or so), or bad venting. Still, that is right outside the part of the yard I'm afraid to go into at night, and while my window looks out into it, its completely covered with curtains so I can't see out of it. If they are even a peek open, I freak a little and have to readjust them.
