Ze house

We got our Energy bill for natural gas used. This will be the first one we've received since we've moved, where we have occupied the house the entire time (the last one accounted for part of the time where the house was empty).

The amount is 3x what it was at our old place during the same month. The new place is not 3x bigger - it is exactly 445 square feet larger, and it has not been that much colder than previous December/January's.

Tonight's purchase will be insulation, for the insufficiently (and inappropriately) insulated basement, the non-insulated garage, and the insufficiently insulated roof.

I'm certainly glad we purchased the project-free house - the house that we were considering that had multiple foreseeable projects clearly would have been too much for us!

They've put in some new fangled thing on the meter that reports to them the reading on a monthly basis. So apparently we are getting charged for what we use :/

There is now some new kind of insulation that is green and less cotton-candy looking - easier to cut. Still just as evil and itchy and horrid though :P
