    I'm interested in replacing the window above the old concrete step (just to the right of the light brown brick) with a front door. Right now, those windows are an enclosed walkway from the garage to the house. The current front door is next to the garage door. Obviously I'd need to carefully...

    I bought an older house last year and were slowly remodeling it. We have block walls with no insulation which I understand is common. I'm going to remove exterior walls to insulate. If I leave the furring strips on the walls I can only use roughly 1" foam board which isn't really enough...
