Melt down

The key to a successful remodeling project is to keep things moving forward, no matter the reason.  Which is why, despite the fact that our temps are hitting the 100’s, we pulled the A/C right on schedule and we are now sitting in a house, during a heat wave, with no air conditioning.

If we had done this project in Texas or Florida, where we formerly lived, we might have broken our own rule.  In those states, in the summer, when it goes to 98 during the day it merely drops to 97 at night.  That might be exaggerating a bit but compared to Northern CA, where the temps are dropping to comfortable temps at night (and with the help of fans) we can make it through.  In Texas or Florida we probably would have headed for the nearest Holiday Inn.

My A/C team was here at 6:30 in the morning and worked until 4:30 this afternoon.  Their hard work produced results.  They fired up the new A/C, an awesome machine, and my house has already started cooling nicely.  Better yet, it’s so much QUIETER than the stone age model that we have replaced.

In concert with the A/C team were the framers, back again to finish a number of details.  In fact we had so many workmen here at one point that my cul-de-sac was filled with those highly identifiable white pickup trucks with ladder racks.  It was a sight to behold!
