Re: Hanging curtains

I am with Jerry we have magnets for our curtain needs and they have been awesome. A bit less powerful magnets that Jerry sounds dangerous but we have been happy with the availability to easily remove the curtains and wash them easily as well as not having all the mounting headaches and holes to deal with. Plus to make curtains without the run in them for curtain rods really made sense for a newbie sewer like myself.

Re: Hanging curtains

Those are what I have. I put the curtains up and the weight drags them down the wall. [sigh]

Re: Hanging curtains

No, we're a gospel quartet. Out on weekends only. Heat...well.....we will be taking this although uncompleted, on its first trip in a couple weeks. Going to probably just bring along a "Mr Heater Big Buddy" for this time. Eventually I am leaning to using either the Webasto or put a water heater with a heat exchanger inline. Still hedging on what to do.
