Bayartogtokh's house was built with thin walls. He said that this winter will be colder than previous years and he thought the colder winter would increase heating costs. Before the "cold air chills the chin" and in order to stop the heat loss through the walls, Bayartogtokh is planning to insulate his house walls on both sides by using energy-saving materials like foam, glass wool, and double-glazed windows.
By doing this he can work without worrying about his mother. His elderly mother needs someone who permanently cares for her. Every son loves to take care of his mother and Bayartogtokh is no exception. He said that in the future, if his brother has a family, he will stay with his mother.
