Plugging the holes, as best we can

Stephan • The entrance to our house is very, very cold. But our budget is tight, and I want to fix up things inside for my mother first. To stop at least some of the cold, I've just stuffed the gaps with old clothes and rags we weren't using for anything. We also have two doors here – one into the house, one outside to the cold: it helps create a buffer zone. I spend all my time doing repairs.
