Re: Just hot everywhere

Chris, our whole-house A/C [Amana]--which replaced an existing system, so no new ductwork--was only $5,000. It is also a heating unit.

Deck lights sound great. I've resisted those. Don't know why.

Maybe I should get A/C after all.  For Romeo, of course.
Not even a one room wall unit for respite, Chris? Don't work on that new deck during this, you'll kill yourself.
I've never really believed in air conditioning. It's always made my bones
really sore anyhow (I don't know why).

For the few times that I'd actually use it I find the $12,000 price tag
for whole house A/C a little steep. A window unit is definitely affordable,
but it's a lot of work for just a few days a year. Again, maybe I'll do
it for Romeo if he looks sad enough. :)

I haven't done much today. Just picked up some stuff around the house and
worked on my deck lights a little. I have to admit that I'm proud of
those things, though. I took outdoor landscape lights and fashioned a
right angle out of copper tubing and welded it to a mounting plate. The
whole thing is painted to match the original lights, so nobody should be
able to tell.

The only problem was cutting the mounting plate -- I didn't have the right
tools, so they're not as perfect as I'd like. Hopefully nobody will notice,
though. :) I'll send pics when they're done.
