Attic Insulation: Completed

After much, much preparation (reinforcing horizontal trusses,ridge blocking and reinforcement, pipe removal, roof patches, skylight installation, wall framing, and brick repair 'til the wee hours of morning the night before) -- the attic insulation was blown in -- TWICE in December. Really a third time would be nice, but that's never going to happen. NO, we will NOT recommend this contractor.... GRRRRR....

Before:
DARK! COLD! DRAFTY!

After:
BRIGHT!
YELLOW!

Much, much warmer and well, only drafty through remaining exposed bricks (more brickwork to come).

Phew. One thing down. What next??

Dear Jodi and Alicia--

My partner Karl and I have long admired your place on 24 Davis. It's been impressive to read on your blog all that you have done to make this house a really unique home. We remember that the place was for sale for sometime through the spring, but it seems that it is no longer on the market. Have you sold it? Are you still trying to sell it? If so, we would be very much interested in considering it. Is there any way we could look at the inside? Are you working with a broker in Poughkeepsie? We are working with Linda Michetti as our buyer's broker. If you are still interested in selling the place, would you mind contacting me or Linda linda@dutchesscountyhomes.com or 845 306-2085 ext. 706?

Thanks,

Jeffrey Schneider
