Housing Update

In the house - barely.  Stuff still in lots of places, mostly first floor.  Progress made on bedroom - now have wardrobe to take some of the excess hangerage but still need to find heavy duty closet rail solution.
Other things on the "do it sooner" list:  getting elliptical machine back in operation, more plywood for the attic to make sorting and storage easier, and make the kitchen more user friendly.
I will also need to ponder the winter.  Standard GHI (Greenbelt Homes, Inc., the co-op I live in) homes are miserable from an HVAC standpoint and, well, Winter is Coming.  I will need to ponder how to handle the oncoming cold with the houses baseboard electric heaters and whatever else I might want to use.  The goal is to keep the costs down without bursting the pipes or otherwise turning it into a miserable place to winter over.
Still, being able to walk to places for the essentials (grocery, library, local watering hole) and a few luxuries (farmers' market, acceptable pizza and cheese steaks) is something I've been missing for a while.  On a larger scope, the location is good and getting to work (from, not so much) or to Glen Echo or other events is much easier.  There will be a learning curve to living in the new place, but at least I'm moving along it now.

Putting insulating film over the windows has really helped us. And it doesn't cut the light levels at all...
