My husband is thinking about putting an addition onto the house.
We have talked about putting extra rooms onto our house for a while now.
But now that I am pregnant with twins, I think that time is of the essence. We really have to go ahead and get the addition put on before the kids get here. We are going to need a lot of extra space after that, and I know by that point we will not really want to spend any time on remodeling and renovations. We already have the plans drawn up, and we have already met with a general contractor. Right now, the only holdup that we are experiencing with the addition is the fact that we don’t really know what to do about the heating and cooling system. See, right now we have a high efficiency heating and cooling system that takes care of our whole entire house. However, if we add an additional square footage to the existing space, we aren’t sure if the HVAC system is going to be able to cover it. The general contractor seems to think that it will be okay without an additional HVAC system, but I really don’t want to have two new babies in the house and then be too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer. I think I’m actually going to call a local HVAC contractor to see what they say about the project. Maybe we can have zone control heating and cooling installed or maybe everything will be just fine the way that it is.
