Project to Save Space and Energy
Making a trundle bed and a closet-and-storage space above it (photo) was a minor project. However, making this 86-year-old house more energy-efficient has been a challenge. So far, the walls, ceiling, and roof deck have been insulated. The windows have low-E coatings and insulated curtains. All the cracks have been filled with Big Stretch caulk. As it has been taking so much of my time, I asked myself how important my principal was and felt like giving it up. As this year's project has been completed, I now feel good about it. After taking a rest, I will probably regain the energy to tackle a new project, which will be to insulate the crawl space and hot water pipes. For now, I'm glad to be back on ceramic works.
