There is no doubt that I should have had a better proposal when I decided to take on a household renovation.
Actually, what I did was add an additional 600 square feet of space onto our existing structure.
I also thought that between myself, my brother and a few friends, it wouldn’t be all that large a deal to complete. Again, I could have planned this a bit better. However, I guess I was influenced by resting on my couch in the Heating and A/C seeing these DIY shows on TV. Plus, my brother absolutely worked construction for years and knew what he was doing. The complication was that we were regularly dealing with stuff in fits and starts instead of absolutely following a plan. But eventually, when I saw the Heating and A/C guy coming out to do the pre-Wintertide check up on the Heating and A/C, I knew we had to get after it. So, I took almost a week off from labor and my brother took multiple afternoons. I enlisted multiple friends over a long weekend and we got the addition dried in and insulated. This was a large relief because we could labor at out own pace the rest of the way. However, another snag came with having to have an Heating and A/C component in order to keep newly plumbed water lines from chilly. My brother and I decided to go with a ductless Heating and A/C unit. It made the most sense and we knew that the addition wasn’t going to be heated and cooled by the main Heating and A/C anyway. That just wouldn’t work. So we went with the ductless Heating and A/C. Plus, it’s nice having heat in there as we worked over the winter.
