What happened to the BBQ?

My child had been planning an outdoor BBQ for her daughter’s eighteenth anniversary.

She had the plans made and all the decorations and food bought, nearly 2 weeks ahead of time.

There was to be forty people at the BBQ. When our wife and I arrived, it surprised us the people I was with and I were the only people there. I thought maybe I had gotten the wrong date, or I didn’t earn the news that the celebration was off. My child was in tears when she came outside. She told myself and others they had called the BBQ off, however she didn’t call us because she still wanted us here. My wife asked her what had happened. She wanted to guess what was broken and if she should go back house and get some tools. She started to cry and took us into the house. There was water everywhere. The boiler water tank had sprung a leak. Since the boiler was on the main floor, right by the bedroom, the water was running under the door and out into the house. Her wife came out of the boiler room and she was just about in tears. There were space gas furnaces everywhere, hoping to keep the water from settling into the flooring.They were trying to keep the wood floors from warping. The air conditioner was running on high, because of the heat in the house from the space heaters. My child and I took our granddaughter out for a elegant breakfast, while the women got the boiler repaired. By the time the people I was with and I got home, they fixed the boiler water tank, the space gas furnaces were gone, and they had cleaned up the mess. They moved the anniversary BBQ to the following weekend.

Why can’t I help daddy?

When our kid was only 3, all she wanted to do was toil with her daddy.

She was forever trying to figure out a way to toil with him. I caught her trying to hide in his suitcase so she could go on a single of his company trips. I have to confess that he regularly tried to let her help. He bought a small grass mower for her so she could help split grass. He bought her a rake plus shovel to toil in the garden. He even gave her her own seed packets plus a small ploy of ground that she could care for. I watched her wipe her brow with her sleeve, just appreciate he did. She would come in plus tell me that farming was tough as she pushed up her sleeves plus washed her hands in the side-by-side sink. The people I was with and I don’t just own a farm, however my spouse is the local Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company. The people I was with and I live out in the boonies plus he is the only person who is able to toil on the farmer’s heating plus a/c. Many of us have barns that have Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C. Our barn has its own ductless Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. The people I was with and I thought it would be safer for our livestock. One day, he got a call from a single of our closest neighbors. They were having some complications with the heating method in their birthing barn. He was all packed up plus ready to go when my kid grabbed her coat. He told her she wasn’t able to go with him on this toil trip. She cried until he remembered that her best friend from preschool lived there. She couldn’t help with the furnace, however she got to go with her daddy.

Upgrading some appliances to get more rent

I think there are a lot of reasons why it is a pain in the butt to be an apartment property manager.

I have been in the industry for the past 15 years and it never gets any easier.

I constantly have to deal with complaints from tenants that are upset by the conditions inside of the apartments. This week we had problems in three different apartments at the same time. The problem is due to all of the air conditioners. They were installed around the same time and they are naturally going bad at the same time. The air conditioners have been in those apartments since I was a manager and that has been a long time. I tried to talk to the owner of the property about the appliance problems. I suggested that we go with a different type of air conditioner. I even got some estimates from a local HVAC companies so I could for the owner with a few different options. The guy is a greedy miser who would rather keep the money in his pocket then upgrade any of the appliances in his apartments. I believe we could get more in rent each month if we had up-to-date heating and air conditioning appliances. Even some of the refrigerators could use an update. I know there are three different places in town where you can buy refurbished appliances and most of those items would be better than some of the machines in these old buildings. I hate to hear all of the complaints, but there isn’t anything that I can do to fix the problem without the help of the owner.

The fireplace is the focal point inside the cabin

There are a few rental properties in my portfolio that are located on the Green Mountain Ridge.

My family and I have owned the property for 50 years.

Over the last 10 years I have tried to make a lot of changes so we can rent the properties for more money. The last property to receive renovations is one of my favorite pieces of land. There is a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom cabin on the land. Inside of the cabin, there is a large stone fireplace with an old wooden heart. The heart is made from a piece of cherry wood that was hand carved by a person in town. With all of the wonderful amenities in the area, I knew I would be able to get more rent if I made a few small upgrades. I decided to make some upgrades to the living room, because I felt like the fireplace was the focal point inside of the cabin. I bought some new furniture and put a Fresh coat of paint on the walls. I added a 65 inch television to the wall adjacent to the fireplace. I also made some adjustments in the kitchen and fixed areas around the porch so everything was safe and sturdy. After everything was finished, I placed an ad in the newspaper to rent the property. I was charging $750 each month, and I decided to see if I could get $1,000 each month in rent. On the first day I placed the ad in the newspaper, I had over 70 responses from folks that wanted to come view the property.

We can't have a window A/C unit in this neighborhood

My wife and I love to paint and we have always dedicated a room in our home to our craft.

My wife prefers oil, pastels, and watercolors, but I prefer to sculpt in clay and wood.

When my wife and I moved out of our old house, we were excited to turn the new garage into a painting Studio. We had great sunlight from the North and the west, and a wonderful Breeze with the door open. Unfortunately, it was very warm and humid during the summer. We had to buy an air conditioner to help with the climate control. We purchased a small window AC unit to place in one of the garage windows. It worked extremely well until one of our neighbors complained about the AC. We received a note on our door from the homeowners association. Apparently we were not allowed to have an AC unit that can be seen from the street. My wife and I had to get rid of the window AC unit and find something else to help. We couldn’t take the window unit back to the store, so we were out $200. Luckily, we found someone on Craigslist that was willing to pay $150 for the three-day used machine. We used the money to buy a portable air conditioner that sits inside of the garage. No one will be able to complain about that machine, and hopefully our neighbors will learn to mind their own business. I can’t believe someone complained in the first place, but maybe it’s the large, blue democrat sign in the front yard.

Designing a new room without any windows

Construction projects can be a real pain, especially when you are remodeling your house. My wife and I decided to turn the garage into a mother in-law suite. It took a lot of work to get the garage ready. My wife and I spent three weeks cleaning the garage and getting rid of junk. We placed a lot of boxes in the attic and we got rid of anything that wasn’t important. My wife and I were going to attempt the construction project on our own, but we decided to hire a contractor at the last minute. We found a reputable contractor that was reasonably priced. We talked with the contractor for several hours about the project, so we were both on the same page. One thing that we talked about was climate control. Since the garage doesn’t have any windows, the contractor suggested that a mini-split HVAC unit would be best. I thought we would have to buy a portable air conditioner, but I liked the idea of a mini-split HVAC unit. The contractor gave my wife and I several different options, and he gave us a pamphlet on mini-split HVAC units. My wife and I spent a week looking at the different equipment. All of the mini-split HVAC units looked much nicer than anything that my wife and I had in mind. We chose a nice 12000 BTU Honeywell mini-split HVAC unit. We ordered the item online and the contractor installed all of the pieces and parts. The mother-in-law suite looks amazing and it’s almost like a small apartment in there.

Steam boiler needs a good repair guy

We never would have dreamed of buying a boat before we moved

Only large commercial companies use steam boilers these days. In fact, it is very rare to find an HVAC company that can service a commercial steam boiler. When my family and I moved to this area almost 10 years ago, I started working for an HVAC company that did not work on any boiler issues. I had five years of steam boiler expertise, because I learned my HVAC experience in the Navy. I joined the Navy after high school and I left for basic training three days after my graduation. I had to pick a trade and I knew that I would be able to find work in the HVAC industry when I was finished with my tour of duty. During my time in the Navy, I was in charge of the climate control for the entire Navy ship. When the HVAC company hired me, they did not have any current commercial customers for boiler repairs. I have been with the company almost a decade, and now we serve a number of commercial customers that have steam and gas boilers. I’m earning a huge salary and I am in charge of training new HVAC employees. My wife and I are very happy that we decided to move to the area, and we just bought a boat. We never would have dreamed of buying a boat before we moved. I was making $35,000 a year, and now I am close to 6 figures. I never dreamed that HVAC work and the military would give me everything I need to be successful in life.

Problems with the heat exchanger cannot be fixed

He suggested that we buy a brand new gas furnace, since ours was already more than a decade old

My wife and I have an old gas furnace that is almost 15 years old. I remember when we purchased the gas furnace. It was the middle of a cold winter season, and my wife and I thought we ran out of fuel. It started to get very cold in the middle of the night and my first thought was that the pilot light went out. Unfortunately, pilot light was not the problem. After carefully checking through the furnace, I felt that the problem was an issue with the heat exchanger. This was not an issue that I can fix at home, and I knew that I would have to contact the heating repair company. When we woke up in the morning, my wife called the heating company to request an appointment time. Luckily, they had an appointment for the same day. My wife and I had to wait until the afternoon to see the heating repair guy. He investigated the problem for several minutes before he came to tell us that the heat exchanger could not be fixed. He suggested that we buy a brand new gas furnace, since ours was already more than a decade old. Now we have another furnace that is just as old and it is starting to have problems. We have had a gas furnace for almost three decades and it might be time to pick something different. I might choose an electric furnace this time, so my wife and I don’t have to worry about running out of gas in the middle of the cold winter season.

The thermostat needed new batteries

The thermostat takes two AA batteries and we had several extra in the drawer in the kitchen

My husband and I went to visit some friends last weekend and we left our two children home by themselves. They are 15 and 17 years old, and my husband and I knew that they were responsible enough to stay home alone. We gave them some money for pizza and snacks and we gave them a list of instructions. We told the kids that they could not have any parties, but they could each invite one friend to spend the weekend. Everyone was safe and secure in the house when my husband and I left for the weekend. Bright and early on Saturday morning, I woke up to a text message from my daughter. She was frantic because the AC wasn’t working. It was only 80 degrees outside, but she was worried about the AC. My husband decided to give her a call. Since the air conditioner wasn’t working at all, it seemed like the problem could be the thermostat. The first thing my husband told my daughter to do was check to see if the thermostat was still working. There was nothing on the screen, which indicated to me that the batteries could be dead. We told the kids to change the batteries. The thermostat takes two AA batteries and we had several extra in the drawer in the kitchen. As soon as my daughter put new batteries in the thermostat, the lights came on and she could see the temperature display. When the AC automatically kept on, all of our worries and fears were gone. The kids didn’t have any other problems throughout Saturday and Sunday.
