That we do Casey. The times of hay bails around the perimeter of the foundation, plastic on the windows, homemade storm windows, skip sheathing on the roof with cedar shingles, no venting of the attics, (not required then, poor insulation, vermiculite and newspapers in the attic, and don't forget 18" of wood shavings for insulation in the attic and wood shavings in the walls.  ;D

Hell, that reminds me, wonder if the wood shavings still fill up the walls I did when I was 14 years old, the house is still there. Bet the insulation is about half full by now.  ;D

I hear you...the place today actually had 3 roof vents, no soffit vents, 3" of blown in cellulose (expected to find vermiculite under it, but no)...

Oh, and they blew the cellulose OVER the live knob & tube wiring...ugh...;)
