Drafty doesn't cover the Apple House. When we first moved in you could see sunlight through the cracks between the logs. We have gone to pretty extreme lengths to try to increase the efficiency of this house. Other than when the contractor literally covered the house in caulk before painting it, the biggest thing we have done is add insulation to the attic.
One day Link decided to have a look at the attic. This is how you have to get there. Scary, huh?
When he got up there this is what he found. Scary, huh?
Here is what the rest of the attic looked like. Notice the lack of insulation in much of it and how poorly it is installed on the parts that had it. (Scary, huh?)
Here is S. (one of the men who our land lord has hired to help fix this place up) taking his turn at blowing in the insulation.
The apple house is now insulated to the gills (at least in the attic.) We'll continue to share the other crazy things we've done to try to keep the heat in this house.
