Windows Up In 3 Bedroom Apartment

As of Monday all the windows in the 3 bedroom apartment have been installed.

Next to be installed will be the sliding glass doors to the patios.

Radiant Barrier being installed inside of apartment

We are busy installing a radiant barrier inside the three bedroom apartment which should provide savings of 15 to 35 percent on our electricity bills.

We hope to be able to install this same radiant barrier inside the "Technology House" in the master bedroom and office. But since this radiant barrier requires at least a 3/4" air gap and we are using R38 which is 10" thick we might not be able to apply the radiant barrier.
