A blog on Facade Consulting

Dear Josemi,

Thanks for this great initiative!

Let me add some content to the blog section of the European facade network. Since last summer I have started a blog on facade related issues. The blog name is Facades Confidential (there's nothing too confidential in there, but names should attire potential readers...)

Hope you enjoy it.…
