The house was like a nightmare come true.
Everything about it was in a terrible state.
The only good thing was that the house had a good foundation, and the primary walls were nice and firm. It also had a beautiful view of the lake, which is one of the reasons I decided to buy it. The other reason was to make it my project; as an interior designer, I saw the potential, and it would also attract more clients once I was done with it, and I would use the before and after to boost my business. Together with two other people, we stripped it down to its primary form. We started working on it bit by bit. It finally came time to involve the home services company in installing the HVAC unit. I had gone to the HVAC company to consult with the local contractor on the best equipment for my home. At first, I had thought that we would retain the ductwork and do duct cleaning, but when a friend who is an HVAC professional inspected it, she said that the best thing to do would be to remove everything. Everything, beginning from the HVAC, would be brand new. My house in the city has a different air purification system. I did not see the need for additional air quality systems here at the lake since the air was fresher than in the city. The indoor air quality would still be high without the other equipment. According to the HVAC technician, changing the air filter and HVAC maintenance is enough to help with indoor comfort.
