It’s time to turn our attention to furnaces, gutters, drains and more
Our relationship with winter isn’t what it used to be. Cutting cords of firewood, sealing gaps between the logs of cabin walls, and other tasks to fortify the homestead against the bleakest season are the stuff of our pioneering ancestors.

It can also be destructive, which means that the modern home still needs attention if it’s going to survive the season. Furnaces might fail, pipes can freeze and frost might form in places it shouldn’t, leaving the unprepared homeowner in the cold.
