Hello all

I am working on an arcitects home and its been an adventure to say the least. All form and no function.  I am fighting for the good guys the whole time.  Just got word that the master bath is going to have glass tiles.  I am not sure if I have ever used this product and feedback would be appreciated.  Stay warm

    Floors or walls??

    Glass has a different emmisivity.



    Had a residential gym once that was finished in highly polished S.S. It Didn't work real well for delivering comfort...

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    No wool rugs just a down blanket!

    I have been getting on the interior decorators about carpet, but recently I have had to get on them about the padding under the throw rugs. Details are hard to keep up with sometimes.   Tonite we have design conditions or even below.  We are looking at 20-30F below zero.  I am sittings here in my kitchen right now its -9F the Vito is running at 118F and I am soooooo cozy!  Warm thougths
