My partner plus I moved to Birmingham, AL, right after my pal and I graduated from school, then we had certainly little currency to invest into purchasing a apartment however didn’t want to rent, then after touring the various neighborhoods, my pal and I were happy to find an affordable condo in Highland Park, and located right near downtown Birmingham, the area offers amix of historic homes, house buildings plus small businesses.
We were able to afford the apartment because it had been left vacant for quite some time plus need a great deal of renovation, however fixing up the home has taken us quite a few years.
We began with the most important troubles, such as a new roof plus bringing the electrical system up to code. We’ve installed new windows plus exterior doors, sanded plus refinished the hardwood floors plus eventually managed to remodel both powder rooms, it took us quite a while to save up the currency to replace the study room. I was happy to replace the old refrigerator, stove, linoleum floor, warped cupboards plus formica countertops. We’ve gradually torn down all of the walls plus ceilings throughout the house, added insulation plus installed new drywall, outlets plus light fixtures, but this allowed us to access the air duct, which was a mess. Whoever designed the original duct system created all sorts of sharp bends that restric airflow. There were also holes, leaks at the seams plus a tremendous amount of grime builtup inside the pipes. We hired a local Birmingham HVAC professional to truly remove the old air duct plus design a more energy efficient alternative. We took out a loan to afford a high-efficiency furnace plus air conditioning that effectively handle the demands of local weather. With temperatures in Birmingman dropping into the thirties plus climbing into the nineties, heating plus cooling is important to comfort.
