I’ve been hiking since I was a teen, and my good friend and I chose to go for the first time with my parents. Mom and dad, at that time, were laboring full time and feeling tired. So, they decided to start walking and hiking in the countryside, and we’d drive to the area, park the car, and go on hikes. The best sites were within state and national parks with amazing hiking trails. At first, I complained about going with them, and wanted to stay in the motorcar to play video games. However, I saw their energy and health improve, so I chose to join them and cherish the experience. Well, I kept hiking even after joining school and even stayed in various cottages across the country. The solitude of mountains and remote landscapes was so enjoyable that I planned to one day live in a cottage. My wish came tploy a few years ago, and it’s been the best experience. I purchased this cottage that came with 10 acres of land in a semi-rural area. The first thing I had to do with the cottage was replace it, followed by figuring out the heating and cooling. There was a stove, and window A/C in the cottage when I purchased it! But, I needed more current HVAC systems, so I contacted a friend who is an HVAC tech for assistance. If I needed a central HVAC, I’d need to add air duct to the cottage which wasn’t cheap. Luckily, there was an alternative and I could use ductless cooling and heating units to keep the space comfortable. Ductless units were a life saver since I didn’t need to spend so much money on air duct upgrade.
