I called a local HVAC contractor for the whole job – removing the old metal and replacing it with new ducts inside the walls
The housing market has been monstrous. I wonder how the Founding Fathers would feel about the cost of buying a house being so outrageous? Normal working class people can no longer afford to buy a reasonable home, and it’s a tragedy. I managed to skirt the system by looking at rural properties that I could renovate and upgrade. Most people don’t have the handyman skills I possess. I knew I could take a lump of coal and turn it into a diamond with a few months of hard work. The one area where I am clueless is with HVAC systems, because they are far too advanced for me to figure out. Thanks to my skills with renovation I was able to buy a large piece of property with a ramshackle house on it for very little money. After that I could do all the work myself except for installing a new HVAC system. The place was also going to need ductwork installed, because it was old enough that it had no air ducts in the walls. The ductwork that had been fastened to the walls and the ceiling was rusted, broken, and falling apart. I was nervous about even removing the old ductwork myself, because so much of it was jagged and sharp. I called a local HVAC contractor for the whole job – removing the old metal and replacing it with new ducts inside the walls. Once the ducts are installed and the new HVAC system is in place, the rest of the renovations will be a snap. Wish me luck.
