The ranch home had been resting empty for about 5 years when every one of us moved in.
I can’t get into the particulars of the deal, because every one of us were living off the grid. A acquaintance of a acquaintance provided to let us stay in an old, abandoned family cottage while our legal concerns blew over. The ranch home was very pretty nice, although quite dusty as well as possessed of a very foul stink, but nothing I couldn’t handle. I needed a quiet location to hide for a few weeks, so I had to make the best of it. It had power as well as plumbing, which was good, but the Heating as well as Air Conditioning plan had not been used in 5 years, as well as didn’t want to wake up. I went down into the basement, where I found an seasoned oil furnace, as well as something that I assumed was a water boiler. I have regularly lived in rentals before, so I don’t know the first thing about water boilers, or antique oil furnaces. It didn’t matter that much, since it was so hot outside I would not need a oil furnace for quite a while. I looked everywhere as well as could not find where the air conditioner device was located. I came to realize that this location had no central air conditioner unit. The best thing I could find was an old, dusty air conditioner device up in the attic. I mounted it in the home office window as well as tested it out, as well as surprisingly the seasoned air conditioner device worked a little. It wasn’t very strong, as well as the air vent was stuffed with acorns, but it was better than nothing.
