The old opening got a new window a couple of days ago and at that time the builders replaced the old 2x4 header with a 2x6 one. That will be needed if we ever manage to build a second floor on the house.

The wall has always been very cold to the touch on the inside. Just a couple of inch of old fiberglass doesn't do all that much after all. To improve the comfort level in that room, a 1-1/2 inch layer of foam board was added before covering the entire wall with new drywall.
