I am renovating a 1920s bungalow. I have windows in a room that is being renovated to two rooms, a bathroom and a closet. I am unable to remove the windows because of historic preservation rules, nor do I want to remove them because I would like to retain the exterior look. I have heard that it is possible to remove the interior trim around the windows, seal the windows with caulk, paint the window glass black on the inside and insert batt insulation at the window glass and drywall over the windows, creating the needed wall space on the interior. Does anyway have experience with this particular method? If so, please tell me how you accomplished it. Does the batt insulation take care of the potential problem of the windows sweating and moisture buildup? (The windows are original single paned.
Important to note so that others don't waste their typing time suggesting that I keep the windows for natural light - The windows will not be kept for natural light.
