Variations on 문하고 창문을 다 닫았는데 아직 추웠어요

 

I am trying to understand the best words to use here and where to place them.

Is -기도 or 아직 better for meaning "still" in this sentence?
Is -는데 or -더라도 better for linking the sentences?
Should 다 come before the nouns or the verb? I think 다 is an adverb, so I think before the verb.

I closed all the windows and doors but it was still cold.
문하고 창문을 다 닫았는데 아직 추웠어요.
다 문하고 다 창문을 닫았는데 춥기도 했어요.

Even though I closed all the windows and doors, it was still cold.
문하고 창문을 다 닫았더라도 아직 추웠어요.


감사합니다!

    '아직' shouldn't be with past. 아직 only can be used with 'present tense'
    여전히 can be used in this case.
    문하고 창문을 다 닫았는데 여전히 추웠어요.
    문하고 창문을 모두 닫았는데 여전히 추워요.
    문하고 창문을 모두 다 닫았는데 여전히 추워요.

    다 문하고 다 창문을 닫았는데 춥기도 했어요.
    '다 (all) shouldn't be placed in front of the nouns.

    Even though I closed all the windows and doors, it was still cold.
    문하고 창문을 다 닫았더라도 아직 추웠어요.
    In this sentence, 문하고 창문을 다 닫았더라도 (어떤 이유로) 추웠어요.
    닫았더라도 describe the situation that there must be some reason to be so, so it is natural you feel that way.
    (바깥 날씨가 워낙 추워서) 문하고 창문을 다 닫었더라도 추웠어요.
    (난방을 전혀 하지 않았기 때문에) 문하고 창문을 다 닫았더라도 추웠어요.
