Re: Low cost, high quality wooden storm window DIY project
- Thanks Tammy,
I've often pondered what would work out better from an efficiency and
practicality standpoint, interior or exterior storms. I guess like
everything else... "it just depends" =) I have heard of issues with
condensation being a threat with interior storms. But I am sure it
can be managed if done properly just like anything else.
Though since I already have my old wooden screens, I'd likely opt to
convert them to exterior storms based on a conversation with "window
restorer guy" at the PNC conference... or maybe not. I'm just not
sure at this point. I guess time will tell =P
Do I sound indecisive enough?! *laugh*
And in a sortof related vein, check this out:
I'm not so sure this would "align" with Local Historic Guidelines, or
how well it really would work, but it is interesting. Technically, I
think the real trick would be to get enough solar energy past all the
shade of established trees and short daylight hours of Winter.
I have to admit though, they would look not too attractive all along
the west side of house =/
