I had two dreams come true recently.
For the first time in my life, I am a homeowner.
On top of that, it is a house that I have admired and loved for much of my life. How’s that for hitting it big? I have spent decades in different spots. But all of them were apartments or rentals. There isn’t anything inherently wrong with renting. I just hated spending all that money every month and none of it going toward building some equity. Plus, I just hated the HVAC in just about every single place I ever lived. That is no joke. The region I call home has a very bad habit of becoming extremely hot during the summer months. That means the HVAC has to be on point. With rental homes and apartments, the HVAC is always completely overwhelmed when the temps get really scalding. But, that is a thing of the past. I am now enjoying a home of my own. It’s a house I have had my eyes on since I moved here after college. That is a long time to eye a home. But, it came up for sale at a rock bottom price due to needed renovations. I was able to get my hands on it and the first thing I did was to address the HVAC system. We ended up using a series of ductless HVAC units throughout the house. This allows every segment to be customized for comfort. Plus, they are super efficient and very powerful. The house feels incredible. Now, I just need to get it looking incredible.
