It would probably be easier and cheaper to just gel the window with full CTO, or maybe just 1/2 or 3/4 for a little bit of chromatic seperation (a little blue outside) and balance the EX3 to around 2700-3000K to deal with the indoor incandescent, which probably aren't a full/real 3200K.
That's how I'd deal with it.

i feel that flv lights will be cheaper
and then having a section of the house lit with tungsten lights will add the warm tones which might look good
just keep a minus green handy if u use flv
try making soft boxes and hanging them in the house

Don't change all the fixtures to daylight. Keep your practicals tungsten and just keep some minus orange ready to cut down on the temp.

I agree with this approach, but balancing the EX as low as 2700k will introduce considerable noise in the blue channel. To be a bit more forgiving, I'd use daylight photofloods or high CRI CFLS, like the <95CRI lamps made by Lowel.
