I have lived in this house for years, but only recently did I decide to start my first home improvement project.
Mostly this came from boredom, and a desire to see if I could do it.
I am not very handy when it comes to home repair. I thought I should start off with something easy, so my target was the workshed in the backyard. It is very old and dingy, but the bones of the structure are strong, so I wanted to refurbish it and turn it into a usable space. I knew that I wanted a sturdier floor, a stronger roof, and a portable HVAC system to provide heating and cooling. I decided to start with the air conditioner, because it would help me complete the other tasks. Also it was the easier part of the renovation. This is a shed, not a mansion. It doesn’t need a central HVAC system with ductwork and air vents, it just needs a portable cooling unit. I did some comparison shopping and found the AC with the highest SEER rating for the lowest price. Once the A/C was in the shed I got to remain nice and cool while I worked on laying down a new floor, and then patching up the ceiling. Once I was done the dingy old workshed looked as good as new, and with such excellent air conditioning I decided to make it my new Man Cave. I don’t know exactly what I will do out in my Man Cave, but I know that I will enjoy excellent air quality while I do it.
