With the cold weather upon us in the northwest, I decided to get my act together and make a damper box to shut off the air to the outside. Even though I have louvers on the outside, I wanted to seal up the vent from letting cold air in.
Oooh! Very nice. (We don’t get really cold weather, but I should still put something like that together, as opposed to stuffing a towel in it.)
Draft dodging for me is going to be buying (or making) an insert for the sliding door. So much fun.
Yep…I have a “3 beach towel” sized window. (temporary of course)
Given that the airflow will expand in the box, it will be interesting to see what build-up occurs on that box due to air vortexes. You might want to make sure to be able to open it up to clean it over time.
That is one good looking solution! I’d say it’s the second-most beautiful and tremendous draft dodger I’ve ever seen. The best one, while not too effective at stopping leaks, makes up for it with an uncanny ability to divert attention.
