How to insulate a brick farmhouse built in 1876?
We are buying my husband’s family farm. The house was built in 1876 and is 2 stories, double brick, with plaster interior walls. There is no central heating so sometimes it actually feels colder than it is outside!
The windows are beautifully arched at the tops with lovely wide, angled molding, and of course single paned. I don’t believe any insulating was ever done.
We are concerned about how to heat the house (ductwork?) and tightening things up. Any and all suggestions would be so appreciated. Thank you.
