Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Storm windows for Winter. Any ideas other than insulation?

For example, we swap bug screens for 1/8" polycarbonate. In may cases, it's as simple as tracing and cutting.


Some are a little harder to fit (the small Beckson hatch screens can be swapped, but it requires cleaning and swapping the gaskets).

How about external covers (other than canvas)? Keeping the UV off always helps, and covers can reduce the summer AC load.
