The inside and outside faucets are a problem. From the HGTV shows I’ve seen in Texas, it isn’t unusual for walls to be minimally insulated, if insulated at all.

When we lived in NC, if the temperature was going to drop below 20 we had to let our faucet drip to make sure the pipes didn’t freeze.

Pipes were run in the crawl space and in the attic uninsulated. The crawl space was never an issue as the ground didn’t freeze and the house was a decent insulator. It was the pipes in the attic that would freeze. If we’d been long-term residents we’d of had to do something more permanent to fix it.
