Good Questions: What Do I Do About Cigarette Smoke?

Hi, AT!

I have a dilemma regarding my downstairs neighbor. I just found out that I live in a smoking building (no mention of THAT in my lease!) and my downstairs neighbor likes to smoke inside & exhale the smoke out her windows. This results in the smoke wafting directly into my bedroom & living room when my windows are open--which I have to leave open during Seattle summers...

... Do you have any suggestions on how to block or redirect this smoke? I don't have window ledges, but my first thought was to find temporary window boxes that don't have to be attached to the building. Any other ideas? Thanks,



We like your idea of window boxes. Check out the posts below, too, which might have some ideas.

Anyone else?
