I guess when you live somewhere long enough, you just get so accustomed to the amount of space you have.
I remember when my wife and I first bought this property.
Initially, the plan was to own this place, replace the HVAC equipment and then sell it when it was time to get a place with lots of space. That’s when having kids was still part of the plan. But the more we got into our respective careers, the more we realized that maybe having kids just wasn’t for us. So we sort of tabled that plan and kept doing what we were doing. That was more than a decade ago. The idea of leaving this spot is not one either of us are at all fond of. So instead, we’ve decided to add on some space instead of selling our home. We absolutely love the quality heating and air in this place. And getting this much land with all this nature around us would also be tough to replicate. So we added almost half again the amount of space that we had originally. It’s been really wild to suddenly have our entire home transformed. The new space also comes with its own HVAC equipment. There is a pair of ductless heat pumps in the new addition. I have to say that I was so surprised that the ductless heat pumps would be so impressive when it comes to heating and cooling the new space. We’re even able to sync them with the smart thermostat that’s running the main HVAC equipment for the original part of the house. I’m betting that we are now here for the duration. Since we have all the space that we could ask for and great residential HVAC, I think we’ll stay.
