  •  Thanks for these good ideas (10+ / 0-)

    Our whole house is one cold mama. we have electric heaters in every bedroom, a pellet stove and a wood stove but there's still cold spots.
    Part of the proplem is there's not a drop of insulation in the walls of this room, not even a vapor barier. Wind comes through that siding!!
    So doing the outside with hardiplank, which should be this summer, all around, with foam insulation and retrimming the windows should do a lot.
    Unfortunatley before I can do the outside of that window wall I first have to do the ----wait for it----foundation underneath it because the current foundation underneath it is---wait for it again---nonexistent. At least the part thats not really effed up. My front door below it is really sitting on nothing but wishful thinking

    I said the worst thing about redoing this house is having to first fix everything thats there, didn't I?
    ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! (stomps around furiously, waves hands in the air, lights curious looking handrolled cigarette)

    Happy just to be alive
