If winter is really here, we need HEAT!

 Time to make sure the old furnace works. 

We can see light at the top of the chimney...It works!
Time to bring in the CO detector, just in case.
We have decided to remove some of the basement windows. 
It is easier than trying to mess with the low window wells.
A top of one of the window wells was actually level with the sod!
(see the one farthest away)

The mason did a great job replacing the windows with block.
We will still need to add one or two egress windows to the basement
(we have already added two to the main floor).

To Nest, or not to Nest, THAT is the question.

Check it out. What do you think??


Finally, the beams in the ceiling are fully exposed. We have hung temporary string lights for now. Can't wait to see what the ceiling looks like once it is white!
