Much Better

I am beginning to see that having S here to do all this work on the house is pretty worthwhile. The number one priority on the list was reinsulating the attic space. There was originally only about three inches of insulation up there. They took it all out and blew in new insulation all around the eaves and the perimeter of the attic space. Then they laid insulation batting on the middle section of flooring. If I ever want to frame out the attic to use as a storage room, it's all ready to go! We had an energy audit done on the house as part of the SHOW program (State Home and Oil Weatehrization). The audit checklist included such energy saving measures as putting in insulation, adding weatherstripping to doors and caulk to windows, installing a digital thermostat, etc. As a result, we are able to get a 25% rebate on all supplies we used, up to $500.
