Now, it feels like our house.
We are able to enjoy this space a whole lot more now that we are getting the most from it.
And that starts with opening this place up. Because really, that’s what this house has needed since we moved here. But when we first got here, we were just so glad to enjoy a winter that didn’t included a gas furnace. Just the fact that we weren’t constantly dealing with snow, ice and the high cost of HVAC heating was a big plus. So we sort of just lived with the house the way it was. The fact that we’re here is what really mattered to us. And it was a big test for us to move down south believing we’d find what worked for us. For so long, we had kept banging away up north and hating the winters and all the HVAC heating. But we felt a bit trapped as well. It’s just sort of the mindset that we get into. You have a mortgage, a decent job and responsibilities which turns into shampoo, rinse, repeat. So we took a chance and moved to a place where we really wanted to experience living. It’s turned out great and now that we’ve opened up the house, it came with a HVAC equipment change as well. Since we were upgrading the HVAC unit, we decided to knock down some walls, pour a big pad and put in a large sun room. We now have zone controlled HVAC in our home and we can close off the new sun room and use just the ductless heat pump out there.
