DIY Home Improvement: Insulating the Upstairs
We are remodeling our hose and it is about half done. Actually, I am being kind by saying half done. We still have A LOT of work. That work starts with the upstairs. Aside from our bedrooms, everything else is still gutted. This meant that some exterior walls upstairs weren’t insulated. We live in New York and boy is it cold!

I’m going to admit that I notice a major different now that this mini DIY home improvement project is done. However, both Dan and I didn’t think it was too bad at first. After all, it is 20 to 30 degrees outside and the upstairs is still warm. Of course heat rises and our rooms are heated, it just wasn’t as cold as we thought it would have been. Which is why this DIY home improvement project kept getting pushed back and back and back some more. But we did it this weekend!

Starting with the upstairs; the space in the picture below is going to be our full bathroom upstairs (most likely next year). We didn’t want to hang sheetrock because it would have to come down in 6 months for the electric and plumbing work. So we just hung some insulation and covered it with plastic.

We actually kind of cob-jobbed the insulation a bit. Dan stuffed it into the beams and did a few staples here and there. But, once again, why go through the work of stapling it so much when it just has to come back down.

Then, there was the issue of our bedrooms not having any doors. All the doors still need to be redone (stripped, sanded, primed, and painted). Our rooms are pretty warm, but would be even warmed if the heat was able to stay inside. So Dan created doors out of curtains.

What he did was hang some heavy duty wire at the top of each door. The curtains we have require the curtain hooks. They were attached to each curtain and then hung. I like the fact there are two curtains on each doorway, so they can be pulled back a bit at night. I am a paranoid person who likes to be able to hear throughout the whole house at night.

In Sarah’s room, she still has two entranceways into her room. One is an actual doorway and the other is from a closet that was demolished out. One door was covered by a dark color sheet (hard to see in the picture below). The other door was left open and uncovered.

She thinks the curtains are pretty cool and wants one over her doorway. However, we are still a bit nervous about the stairway and at night. We always leave on light on upstairs for her to see when getting up to go to the bathroom, get a drink, and so forth. Maybe in a few months when she is more familiar with the house and we are more comfortable. For now, we’d most likely have a child screaming “its too dark in here; I can’t see where I am going” otherwise.
