    Hey Macy! On the subject of heaters, are you continuing your radiant floor heat onto the platform, under your bed? I ask because it occurred to me that putting a mattress up on the platform, isn’t much different than sleeping on a mattress on the floor in a traditional house – and that seems like it would be really cold, if you’re getting down to 17 degrees at night? I’m just curious if you handled the insulation differently up there? Or if you have some other plan to keep it comfortable?

    • Macy M says:

      I don’t have the radiant heat up there but I am guessing that I will be ok still, I still have a TON of insulation (R-42) in the floor in the loft and a lot in the walls/ceiling as well. I was thinking it would be a little better than just on the floor because heat rises and its about 4 foot off the floor level. I will update how well it works for sure! Thank you for the comment! I hope all is well with your build!

        R-42? That’s great!

        And I’m not building, I’m still in the planning stages. And I’m grateful I get to learn from those who come before me – like you!

          Oh weird! I replied from my phone and it gave me a different picture, I should have paid more attention to the name, I am sorry to confuse you with someone else! Still… when you DO build good luck! 🙂 Ha!

    I love how much natural light there is in your home, Macy! It’s so bright.

    Hey Macy. Love the progress! Wanted to share a little about the oil heater you have. They do take quite a while to heat up, but once they are warm they stay warm. We have three in our house and it takes a little figuring out the temp you want because its so constant. They are super efficient, will cost you much less than other heaters! And they’re nice because you don’t really have to worry about fire danger. We use it to dry clothes in the winter and warm up socks and sweaters on cold days. Good luck!

    • Macy M says:

      I left it on low through the night, it worked WONDERFULLY, I think it got down to the mid teens again last night and when I went out there this morning it was PERFECT! It is going to com with a really high review from me! 🙂 I love the sock warming idea! I will have to do that! 🙂 Thank you for the comment!
