Window Solar Supplement

  Today I finally got to start on building the window unit passive solar heater that I’ve been meaning to work on.  It’s actually coming together pretty nice, some of my cuts weren’t the straightest so the next step will be to use some ‘Great Stuff’ expanding insulation to seal up any holes and cracks that exist.  Then I need to cut the divider pane to separate the two channels of air and come up with some sort of glazing for the transparent front.

I’m just sorting out how I want to do everything on my first one.  If I’m happy with the way it turns out I’ll put together some instructions to put up as an informational page.
