Ok, before I had a baby I kept up on the forums, and I’ve done a quick search to see if anything else has been posted in the last seven months, but haven’t found anything that matches my case. I need some help/inspiration/tips for a venting setup on my window…that has a single pane of two layers (can’t put a hole into it), is a meter and a half tall, and opens inward.
We tried the whole velcro-cloth contraption last summer with a portable a/c unit, and it was an utter fail. And because the window I want to use is in the ‘guest room area’ (I have one giant room downstairs, where the living area and kitchen and entryway hall are attached) I need to be able to remove it when we use the pull out bed, so taping something directly won’t work. I can’t drill holes in the walls either, because my apartment is in a 400 year old building and the stone walls are quite literally over half a meter thick (yay south of France!). The wall behind the radiator is a bit thinner, but there isn’t enough room to go under. Notice too that I have only one handle to open the window, which means I can’t brace it shut that way. (also scary given that I have a baby who looks like he might start climbing early…and we’re on the 4th floor!)
Please help, all you crazy inventive DIY-ers out there!
