Repeating the Message Again, Again, Again....

The message may get repetitive, but it will continue to be delivered. The world can’t build its way to sustainability. We’ve got to work with what we’ve got and make it more efficient.

“Experience has shown that virtually any older or historic house can become more energy-efficient without losing its character. Restoring the original features of older houses — like porches, awnings and shutters — can maximize shade and insulation. Older wooden windows perform very well when properly weatherized — this includes caulking, insulation and weather stripping — and assisted by the addition of a good storm window. Weatherizing leaky windows in most cases is much cheaper than installing replacements.”

Save the Windows!

Thanks for the reminder post, Ted, and thanks for the NYTimes link. BTW, that's one beautiful window.

I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the best virtual strippers on my taskbar.
