House update

The empty breaker panel, waiting for wires and breakers

Work on the inside of the house has started, though the kind of work that’s happening now doesn’t make great photos. The electrician has started. The plumber and the heating and air conditioning people should start any day. The next stage is all about putting pipes and wires and ducts inside walls.

The attic fan, waiting to be installed. When I picked this up at Lowe’s, the salesman said, “We don’t sell many of those. Most people don’t use them anymore.” That’s a pity, because attic fans can make a house completely comfortable when it’s only moderately hot, using far less energy than the air conditioning. I don’t think I’ll need to resort to air conditioning until the temperature is above 85 degrees, or if the humidity is unbearable. I love good ventilation. Stale, dead air drives me crazy. It’s also good for the house to keep the attic as cool as possible.

    Ha! Mine didn’t have one either. I got one installed when I got the attic insulated.
