I cherish seeing those house improvement shows.
They actually are an addiction.
The most recent series I have become faithful about seeing involves particular housing choices. I have seen everything from living in a treedwelling to turning an actual cave into a year round home. Each new one presents a strange set of challenges to make it into a tploy home. The one I was seeing yesterday actually intrigued me. The man bought an outdated rusty barge that has been put out of commision. I was used to move steel back in the afternoons of industrial greatness along the canals as well as Great Lakes. It actually looked awful when he bought it but spectacular when finished, and one of the things I found fascinating was that, due to the hull being basically hollow, they were able to install a relaxing Heating as well as A/C system. The ductwork was run through the hollow space as well as up through the walls. It was a system exactly like you would find in a frame built dwelling as well as it ran on propane gas. I thought this was genius. I always thought that if you lived on the water you had to have some sort of marine type Heating as well as A/C system or one that was similar to that you would find in a car. The system that they installed included zone control as well as everything. The vents looked just like those in my own home. The owner was able to travel in their house on the water while feeling like they were in a standard house. It is amazing how far the Heating as well as A/C industry has evolved from the afternoons of sizable outdated gas boilers as well as clunky window a/c units.
