Here in the warm south the low was 2. At 7 now, the boiler has been running quite a bit.

I have left the faucets dribble for 3 days now, and so far, no frozen pipes under the house. Which aren't insulated either.
Look at our forecast for next Tuesday !

Yep, none. Just 5/4" rough-sawn sheething boards, covered by 1/2" thick pine siding on outside, with plaster walls on inside. Very comfortable on the inside, as long as temp stays above freezing, like it is supposed to in a normal winter.
Instead of a total makeover/remodel like you did, we are going to start from scratch and build a modern house at the back of our property. 10 year plan. The lumber in this house will be de-constructed and used for a large garage/shop once we move into new house.

72 in the main house, basement is 80 thanks to the boiler and piping. The EFM had all it wants right now...it has been stoking for the last hour to "hold the line" and produce hot water.
