Insulation 100 years ago

What a fun surprise to pop by a remodel today.  The owner is breathing new life into his very vintage, single wall cabin.  He found the original insulation – old magazine photos! Someone worked very hard a century ago, collecting those photos and pasting them on the wall to help keep the drafts out. Quite a collection of photos on heavy paper will soon be covered with the very latest insulation including recycled denim.

That makes the second cabin on the mountain that I know of Forever in Blue Jeans!

Just part of another fun day on Palomar!




  1. used mild cartons, also work nicely between the studs. 🙂
