Well, we’re moved in! Our basement is our new home. The furnace has not run since we’ve been living down here, although our new space heater cycles on and off. Hopefully our next gas and electric bills will reflect positively on our new lifestyle! Here are some pictures.
Uh-oh, Beanie got ahold of an energy drink…
Our new space heater. It’s much more efficient than the furnace, and the blower doesn’t use as much electricity.
Beanie’s sleeping bag, inside her playhouse. We’ve ordered a Japanese fouton for her, to use underneath it.
Beanie’s play area. She loves it!
Our kitchen/laundry room/closet. Yes, that is all of our clothing for the winter!
Last week, when Beanie was sick, she watched “Sailor Moon,” projected on the wall.
Enjoying some iPad time. We sleep on the Fouton at night, and store the bedding underneath it during the day.
Rob’s computer room, under the stairway. He calls it his “poverty station,” and it reminds me of Harry Potter.
So that is our home this winter. The main floor stays warm enough for us to use the stove and bathroom (we use an electric heater when we shower). I am already enjoying the reduced housework load!
