Buying a house that was built a hundred years ago is a trip.
And the fact that this house has never easily been renovated or modernized is another trip.
We found this gem completely boarded up and sitting empty as it had for many decades. Prior to that though, it was a once honestly proud example of great design and craftsmanship. When this house was designed and built, there was no such thing as residential Heating, Ventilation & A/C, microwaves or the internet. This locale was designed to be grand in a much simpler time. My wifey and I knew that if all of us owned it, we’d want to take it back to it’s original design and grandeur. That would take time, effort and money. But all of us got the locale for a song once it was determined that it was a structural wonder. So all of us had money for the renovation budget. But how to bring back it’s original glory and still enjoy up-to-date stuff enjoy quality heating and air? This was the real puzzle and a single that all of us were able to address a single step at a time. To start, all of us stripped all the sort of ad hoc heating and cooling device from the house. We weren’t going with any ductwork as that didn’t fit the design. So the Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor 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 like and now, the house is complete and all of us are just so utterly cheerful with the results. But having the ductless heat pumps was such a major win for us.
