I know a guy who added another wall 1 foot from his existing wall on the south facing side of the house. He installed a thermostatically controlled solar driven fan to pump the hot air inside the false wall to inside the house. Cut his power bill down to nothing in winter.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

Mr. Webster, This sounds like an excellent idea. Does this fellow have any details? Materials, dimensions, etc.? Where is he located geographically? More details please...

He lives on Fowl river near Belengrath gardens. We have mild winters here. I think the house was featured in a newspaper article but I cannot find it. You ever hear of a beer can heater?

Are we talking about Fowl River near Bayou La Batre? Heck, I'll just ride the BMW down there and visits with him. Does he carry a gun? Is he...ya know....right? Is there any danger?
