I've been wanting Brad to paint the room for a while, but before doing that he wanted to address the issue of the cold. He wanted to, as a particular HGTV star says, "Make it Right."
This month it came time, he removed sheet rock in the alcove, the wall between the alcove and window, and the window wall. He found scant insulation, so he foamed it, replaced the existing insulation, and wrapped it in silver material that reminds me of a padded cell. Then he and a friend replaced the sheet rock.
Our boudoir, as a work in progress over the last few weeks (he's also been working with clients and such--you know, his real job):
|Containing the dust, that's our bed under the black plastic tarp|
|Original insulation over foam|
|Silver over foam|
Part two, come in from the downstairs. Brad has moved to the garage, where after tearing down the ceiling, so far just on one side, he has determined there is NO insulation around our bedroom window. So he is repeating all steps from below.
