    ok, what stops a leaky front door? Do you mean cold air? Would goat house window benefit from the plastic, shrink wrap, winter insulation window covers common here which use double sided tape and made tight via a blow dryer?

    In China farmers use fiberglass fabric and staple them to the exterior of window openings. A lot of farmers are too poor to have actual glass.

    Our front door is not the right size and has a 1-2 inch gap at the bottom. Making a huge draft. We simply put the glass back in the storm door, and that helped a lot. We also tuck a towel under the door. I may go to lowes and see if I can get some weather stripping as well.

    I tried plastic on the goat house last year. Worst mistake ever. Every time we had a blizzard it would blow off, and I was out there in below 0 weather trying to put it back on. This year I actually bought and cut down plexiglass, and made a frame for it. So they have a real window that lets light in and keeps cold out. There is another window in their shed but it's on a side facing away from the weather. I can't decide if I should leave it open for more ventilation, or close it up too.
