Mornings were chaotic! Bathroom wars ensued every day because numerous siblings, a set of triplets plus twins, had to share one bathroom, but the ladies took forever in the bathroom, and the boys had little patience.
We tried coming up with a routine, but it only worked for 2 afternoons then back to the same old chaos.
There was a time when the gas furnace broke down, plus there was no hot water in the bathroom, plus they had to shower in our bathroom. We called the HVAC company, and they responded promptly. The HVAC serviceman repaired a gas furnace/heater, replaced the gas furnace filter, plus we had hot water running again! On that day, Travis and I resolved to add another bathroom, not as a future project but one that needed to be handled urgently. After another week of bathroom wars, the addition of another bathroom was underway. The HVAC repairman that worked on our HVAC repair also did the radiant floors in the up-to-date toilet, which would help with indoor comfort. The electric heat pump upgrade that served as central heating was compatible with the heating technology we would use in the new bathroom. It would supply quality heating, so there was no need to get new HVAC equipment. We had put a condition that the only time we would build a new bathroom is if all the youngsters would implement all the energy-saving tips we had come up with, so far there had been some changes, but we still had a long way to go when it came to learning more about heating. Our routine regarding the HVAC systems would remain the same since we already had a scheduled heat pump repair that we would continue with in the future.
