A Story About Home Improvements

Written by Scott Orme

We moved into a house built in 1891, it had a full reno about 15 years ago so it’s much more efficient than when it was first built. Since we moved in we have done the following to improve our footprint:
- high efficiency furnace
- R50 attic insulation
- replaced an old garden door with a brand new one
- replaced the biggest window in the house with a triple-paned fixed window
- rain barrel that we use to water all our plants as well as occasionally wash our car with
- installed an electric car charger in the garage for our EV
- converted all lighting to LED
- maintain a composter in the backyard
- we have a reel mower and an electric weed eater for yard maintenance
- maintain a yard full of plants to attract bees and wildlife

Thank you for this opportunity!
