I bought a legitimately awesome townbeach lake house in 1 of my favorite cities, and one of the things I loved about this townbeach lake house was the stone walls plus open ceilings with exposed pipes, but the previous owners did a beautiful job at redoing the place, however they were open about the lack of central heat plus air.
They only had a few window AC units for air plus there wasn’t any heat.
After careful consideration plus a lot of compromise, every one of us negotiated a price for the townbeach lake house that left me enough money to substitute the heat plus air, and i wanted to have central heat plus air added, however that required air duct. I hired a few contractors to come out plus give me an estimate, however there were some roadblocks that I wasn’t anticipating. In order to install air duct, I had several options. I could reroute the pipes in the ceiling to make room for the air duct, or I’d have to have custom ducts made for the space. I considered the price of each option, however sadly they were about the same. It wasn’t cheap to reroute pipes plus custom ducts weren’t inluxurious either. Although it would cost a lot of money upfront, having central heat plus air in this townbeach lake house would make me feel more comfortable plus it would increase the value of the house. After the new air duct was installed, I legitimately loved the way it looked in the exposed ceiling with the existing pipes. It made my townbeach lake house look even more industrial than before!
