Winterizing the Windows
By Daisy Luther
One of the nicest things about my cabin in the woods is how the living room has enormous windows with a million dollar view out every one.
The not so nice thing is that one of these windows is a 10 foot long single pane draft monster!
I made draft blockers out of some rolled fleece a couple of weeks ago, and that helped a lot….until the temperature dropped.
Look at the frost that covered the field by my house this morning! Brrrr…. the grass was positively crunchy from it!
As it’s difficult to find a 10 foot long curtain rod (and I’m cheap) I broke out the high tech hammer and nails to do this project. I used items that I already had:
2 plush throws
For the first step, I took two rather battered plush throws and hung them over the windows. This was not pretty of course, and there is no way I could handle leaving it like this. I left the draft blockers in place because every layer helps!
