General Contractor Recommendations:

“We’re looking to install some small-ish built-in shelving, install a bathroom vanity, and to help us complete some other smaller projects around the house. Can anyone recommend a good general contractor or contracting firm in DC?”

Insulation of converted sleeping porch?

“Before we bought our rowhouse, the old exterior wall was expanded out to include the sleeping porch. The basement was not dug out, so the hardwood floor on the main floor in the old sleeping porch is significantly colder than the rest of the floor. I presume they put some amount of insulation below the sleeping porch, but I’m wondering if anyone else has the same issue? I knew the floor would be somewhat colder, but I’m surprised at how significant the difference in temperature is.”
