|Bringing Back Holleywood||
When we bought the house, one of the upstairs closets was filled with bags of insulation. Bill and Rob decide to put it to good use by laying it beneath floorboards of unheated two rooms we're using for attic.
Ninety bags of organic insulation were installed, with difficulty, in the floor of the attic, to keep heat from escaping through the roof. Before insulation went in, an original, non-working chimney was removed from attic floor, brick by brick, filling 30 buckets.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten.
