I did think about area rugs, but that wouldn't work in the kitchen. And,
I hate to cover up the beautiful new hardwood.
At this point, we're still having unusually cold days and nights, and
predicted for another week, at least. I may just wait until the weather
gets more normal before I make a decision on what to do. If I do
anything, my question is still do I insulate the crawlspace walls or the
above head flooring. I'd love to also install a more efficient furnace,
but that's not in the budget at this time.
Before my brother got his new house built up at Hunsville Ontario he
lived in an old "redneck bungalow" that was parked on the property.
He skirted it with 1X6 lumber and insulated the skirting, and the
place became pretty liveable. When they got some good snow on the
ground he banked it up to help insulate the "crawl space" and it
stayed obove freezing all winter with just a 100 watt light bulb under
the trailer. He was sitting on dry sand. This was not a small trailer
- 50 ft I think.

a six inch walkway through the center of my trailer"
Americans... Infathomable creatures.
Refuse to use the brains the Lord they
worship so dearly, gave them. When
Jesus said lay your worries at my feet,
he didn't mean "live in a drafty barn of
a house with the heat cranked up to 90"!
