I would love to be ecstatic about the porch. I would love to extoll its virtues over the drafty, cold old porch, but I cannot. The porch is freezing! There is definitely no insulation in the floor, and I am not sure about the ceiling, though there is in the walls. The windows are recycled and drafty and were not installed correctly. They should have been sealed, and were not. The door is recycled and is one of the worst things about the porch. In this weather, it warps and does not close. The contractor used some old door jam which is the wrong size for the door. The gaps let the cold air in as though it was an open window. And, there is no threshold. That door has to be removed and a new properly installed. The windows have to be sealed. The floor needs an insulated sub floor. The list goes on and on. There is no house wrap under the incorrectly installed expensive cedar siding. I have been putting off the law suit, but need to make some time to go to the courts and launch it, though the likelihood of getting blood from a stone is marginal at best. In the meantime, the dog's water freezes in the porch, the snow stays on the firewood and the dog's meat stays frozen. ..not what I had in mind at all. Do I cry now or later?
