Pink is the new green

I wasn't sure what to call this post. My other option was “caffeine and caulk don't mix.”

But, really, they do.

Michael and I spent Sunday air sealing our home. Winter is definitely the time to find drafts and cold spots. Plus, having the walls down makes it particularly easy. We used caulk, foam, standard insulation – all of which ended up on me. Turns out caulk is the easiest to get off of the skin, aerosol foam is the most difficult, and insulation just itches.

I’m convinced that the way we are insulating our home is adding some to the structural integrity. It's certainly adding to the efficiency. Soon we’ll be on to drywall… I can hardly wait!
