Kyoto Nijo Castle Machiya Project – Part 9

– INSULATION –

Follow our journey as we renovate a traditional machiya townhouse in Kyoto. Once complete, the renovated machiya will be offered for sale.

There is about month to go before the renovations will be complete.

The windows have arrived and some of the framing is underway. We are installing a low window in the bathroom dressing room to provide a small view of the tsubo-niwa garden. There will also be floor heating in this dressing room. 

The polystyrene foam insulation has been installed in the ceiling, with glass-wool sound insulation along the party wall shared with the neighbor.

The ducting for the upstairs and downstairs air-conditioners is going in.
