Our little slice of NC is under 10" of snow and 20 degree weather, so I have been returning to my favorite wintertime indoor obsession/hobby: weatherproofing. I have detailed in other threads how my wife and I rebuilt a 1911 farmhouse into a semi-efficient modern home. There is still a massive amount of exterior work to complete, but the inside is pretty much finished. My love of detail work and sleuthing come together perfectly when it comes to finding and blocking drafts. Even the smallest gap can lead to a chill in the room. I prowl around with a tube of caulk in bare feet and a t-shirt until I feel a stab of cold air. A little bit of searching and I can usually trace it to a tiny nail hole in a baseboard, a split in some trim, or a gap between floorboards. Every year, our house gets incrementally tighter and warmer and our heating bills go down. I suspect that when I finally get to caulk the exterior clapboard, this place will be tight as a drum. Anyone else into this? It sounds weird, but it beats watching tv.
