Fellow came to size up our windows and doors plot and provide an estimate today. Grace did her staccato short cut woof to brace him when he entered but after a moment they were friends. We have one leaky door and a number of windows that are still from the original construction time of the country mansion (slight exaggeration) and they are single pane with a non-dazzling R value of just one. So we have some deciding to do, where to establish our thermal perimeter. Since it is Spring we have months to decide. This place is a cedar siding exterior on a cement block foundation, winterized cottage constructed in 1969/70. Most of the windows have been worked over at least once. This new plot will bring the entire perimeter to a much better heat loss bargain for next winter and the winters to follow.
