Our front door is a bit drafty.
More than a bit, really: during the recent windstorm, water was blowing in under the bottom seam.
And that’s after we (T) have fixed the threshold.
In the long run, the whole door needs replacing, as well as the frame. And we need a storm door. But in the short run, I hung a curtain.
Not just any curtain!
I bought two lengths of heavy upholstery fabric on clearance at JoAnn’s, and then a layer of batting (the stuff that goes in the middle of quilts). I sewed a giant tube, inserted the batting, and then sewed a border to hold the batting down.
Then I sewed up the top so that I could slide a curtain rod through it, and hung a swing-arm curtain rod (this) above the door, so we can swing the curtain away to get out the door.
The difference was immediately noticeable.
Next up: the back door!
Is your house drafty? Too warm in summer? Too cold in winter? How do you deal with it?
