Oh yes, this is what you get. The dead landlord rehabilitated this 110-year-old adobe over 40 years ago. I guess that makes it “old Taos” twice over. Probably the best thing he did was add a second roof that you can’t see, because at least the place is insulated in that way and doesn’t lose much heat through the ceiling. Thanks to the old Ashley wood stove fueled with magical piñon wood from lightning-killed mountaintop trees, we stay cozy inside even at -26 °F, the lowest temperature we’ve experienced here.
