Increase the energy efficiency of your home by increasing the insulation in the walls and ceilings. Home built 20 years ago or more have little or no insulation. Thinly insulated ceilings allow heat to escape in the winter and hot air in during the summer. Fiberglass blankets and rolls applied to the ceilings are relatively easy for the home remodeler to handle while loose-fill and blown-in materials are often left to insulation professionals. Wall insulation can be increased by blowing it in through a hole in the wall or during major remodeling when either the wallboard or siding has been removed. The U.S. Dept. of Energy lists the guidelines for homes based on region. Learn more about increasing the insulation in your home here.
Boiserie is a decorating term used to define ornate and intricately carved wood panelling.

The next day they removed the stove, sink, countertop, and the rest of the cabinets. Hi Jackie! What I love about doing these projects is the fact that a simple paint job can turn something in to a new piece. It’s not necessary to buy a new piece of furniture when it’s so easy to repaint.
Great job on your bathroom makeover, Crafty! Great step by step instructions as always! Good idea to change the knobs on your vanity; with a new color and new knobs it gives an entire new look! My wife gives line dancing lessons and the vinyl plank floor you put in is working out perfect. The sound quality of your system is remarkable, everyone who comes downstairs comments on it. Does anyone know what I’d need to add to the Quonset hut for support. My mom is buying 12 acres with a cabin built in 1880. And I get to build what I want. LOL not to bad. its really a good writeup, would be interested to read such more informative draft from you ahead, can be a wonderful help to the new readers like me.
Replacing your current siding with aluminum siding holds many benefits, but does have a few drawbacks. Dependent on the size of square footage of your home, aluminum siding can range in price from $3000 to $8000 for houses between 1000 to 3000 square foot. It really depends on the brand and the actual size of your home. Just had to come back and read this again! I’ve been getting into renovations and I just couldn’t pass this up!
