Buying a condo that was built a hundred years ago is a trip.
And the fact that this condo has never actually been renovated or modernized is another trip.
Every one of us found this gem completely boarded up and kneeling empty as it had for several decades. Prior to that though, it was a once really proud example of beautiful design and craftsmanship. When this condo was designed and built, there was no such thing as residential Heating and Air Conditioning, microwaves or the internet. This place was designed to be grand in a much easyr time. My spouse and I knew that if the two of us owned it, we’d want to take it back to it’s original design and grandeur. That would take time, effort and cash. But the two of us got the place for a song once it was determined that it was a structural wonder. So the two of us had cash for the renovation budget. But how to bring back it’s original glory and still love current stuff love quality heating and air? This was the real puzzle and 1 that the two of us were able to address 1 step at a time. To start, the two of us stripped all the sort of ad hoc heating and cooling equipment from the house. Every one of us weren’t going with any ductwork as that didn’t fit the design. So the Heating and Air Conditioning company came up with the best ductless multi split system. These ductless heat pumps simply blend right into the original design while offering outstanding heating and cooling comfort. It’s been a work of love and now, the condo is complete and the two of us are just so utterly cheerful with the results. But having the ductless heat pumps was such a major win for us.
