Hi, I now live in the house where I grew up. My mother an uncle smoked in the house all my childhood life. Now I often smell cigarette smoke early in the morning and at other times at this house.
No one smokes in this house now, and it has been totally remodeled.
What once was the back porch has been torn completely away and a bedroom added there. That is where I smell the smoke most of the time.
What does this mean?
