Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am really surprised by the apparent lack of modern insulation in buildings in so many of the residences reflected in this diary.  We've had two houses here near Wash DC since the mid 70s and both have had R14 insulated walls, R32 ceilings and double glazed windows (triple and exotic filled also available). These standards are common.  I suppose one reason is that it's easy to build and insulate our tinderboxes.
