This summer, we are going to be putting an addition on our house off of the back bedroom.
- We are actually going to be closing in our huge deck and putting windows in.
We’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time, but it’s never been the right time up until now. I think that this is going to be a great year to get it done, though. My kids are all older now and I don’t have to be with them every single second! They are able to look after themselves for a little while, so we should be able to get a lot of work done on the addition. Of course, we will be working out in the hot sun while the kids are all inside in the air conditioning. I don’t know how well that’s going to go over with my husband, since he likes to make the kids help with whatever we are doing. I think they might still be too young to help with the addition, though. We are almost through the planning stage. Tomorrow, we are supposed to meet with our HVAC contractor to figure out a good plan for the heating and cooling system for the addition. We aren’t sure yet if we want to attach the existing HVAC system to the addition with new ductwork or if we want to put in zone control heating and cooling with an additional heating and cooling system. Hopefully, the guy we talk to tomorrow will have some advice for us. I’m excited about getting it done!
