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. On this blog, whenever there is a trade off between the complete and correct answer to a problem and a simplified answer, I will present the most complete and most correct explanation. If this means 5 pages of ordinary differential equations and graphs to properly explain how loans work, so be it.

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.

Where to begin

Consider starting with the introduction article:
