Progress on remodeling, and converting to condominiums. The three homes that will be for sale are getting all new wiring and plumbing. 3124, the one bedroom, just got a combination heater and A/C unit in the living room. I wasn’t planning on putting A/C anywhere, but this was the solution to the problem of where to put the heater in that unit. The living room is small, and anywhere you put a wall heater would take away a place for furniture. This is called a ductless heat pump. The main unit sits outside, and the inside portion is high on the wall.
I need to put posts to protect the outside component, and the concrete is turning out to be thicker than I expected, so I’m heading to Home Depot to rent something called a core drill rig. The rotary hammer drill isn’t doing it.
My plan for keeping cooler in the summer in most of the units is: good insulation and better vents in the attic, and a whole house fan in each unit. Thermal insulation in the exterior walls will have to wait for another year, but I think the attic insulation and fan will make a big difference.
I’ve ordered three new fiberglass windows for the big upstairs unit. Can’t wait for them to get here!
