|Insulation, for the attic, stacked up the stairs.|
|The second load of insulation for our house.|
Now if I could just figure out how to raise the temperature in the downstairs as it is still rather cool down there. I have decided to invest in a ceramic heater, but my hubby is concerned about the impact it may have on the electrical bill. I would appreciate any feed back you might have on this as well.

|All set up and ready to go.|
We replaced the front door, added attic insulation, insulated the electrical outlets, and added caulking around the windows, as well as adding insulation in the crawl space and putting in a new heater.
The worst things about this whole experience was the aftermath of adding the spray in insulation to the attic. I had to clean every book and knick knack upstairs in the house. It took me a week of dusting, washing, and wiping down to get everything cleaned and back on the shelves. It was a learning experience and if we ever move, we are going to do any adding of insulation and such before we move our furniture and such in to the place.
We debated adding siding or below ground insulation and decided we should do the below ground insulation.
We are noticing that the house is warmer, except when we have those well below zero days and nothing is warm.
Tom is also doing a comparison of the heating usage for the last few years and it appears that our usage has gone down some. We will keep checking and see how things go as the winter progresses.
I need to schedule them to come and do the final rating so we can submit papers to get reimbursed for our house. We are still waiting on the check for Bryce's house to come in and we submitted that in late August.
