I cannot wait for this Winter to end
My husband and I own a big, seasoned farmhouse. It truly belonged to my wonderful Grandparents way back in the day. It is so full of history and character. I am so thankful to be living in a apartment full of my own family’s history! My husband has had to put a lot of labor into this seasoned house. It is honestly high repair. We had to update all of the windows to help insulate the apartment a little better. We still lose quite a bit of heat during the Winter weeks which makes heating the apartment quite extravagant. The coldest rooms in the apartment are the dining rooms. I do not suppose why, but they seem to lose the most heat. My son’s room is genuinely the coldest. I guess his room is where most of the wind hits the house. We constantly have an electric space heating system going in his room during the Winter weeks so that he stays hot enough. This Winter has been the coldest Winter that I can remember since living in this big, seasoned farmhouse. We have had to do even more than regular to keep the apartment warm. It has been a lot of work, but some mornings both of us just all camp out in the dining room near the wood stove in order to stay hot enough. I have had to use a hour space heating system in my son’s room because it has been so cold. I cannot wait for this Winter to end. It has already been taxing and it is only December. My husband is going to see if he can do anymore to help insulate the house, but to be honest, even our neighbors with newer houses are having trouble staying hot this winter.
