Dear AT: I would like to turn a covered balcony into a more enclosed space, that would be capable of some temperature control with a space heater. I live on the second floor of a 3 floor apartment complex, there is a ceiling above the balcony (from which I could hang materials to create a "room"), with a banister about 2.5 feet off the ground.
What kind of materials would I need to hang here? Are there insulated materials that can easily be hung (perhaps in layers) to accomplish this goal? Has anyone else had success in doing something like this?
