Enclosed Back Porch Project
I thought about removing the wood floor, but I have already removed 2 layers of plywood. I could still get in the crawl space and put some rigid foam under the vapor barrier. But someone told me that the vapor barrier was enough. I don't think I can pour a slab, I just don't want to get too expensive. Why do you recommend removing all of the old wood?
Type of wall and ceiling insulation and how much? walls are T&G with about an R13. I removed the suspended ceiling and found more T&G. R19 in the ceiling, but a big access hole was allowing cold air to come in. I am going to close the ceiling and paint the T&G.
Type of windows? Old windows and an exterior door to be replaced.
If the room has heat and what kind? single radiator with 1/2 in copper feed, replacing with 3/4 in pipe and insulating pipe.
Type of heat in the house? Oil, hot water, may be changing to gas.
any separation between this and the house? Doors? one door that we try to keep closed, but someone always forgets.
