Busy week house wise. We have had so many people in and out of the house this week! The furnace people were in for 3 days. First was getting rid of what I called the behemoth:
While it would have been nice to put off getting a new boiler for a year, this one was smelly and I was a little concerned about its safety, even though it checked out okay with the heating people. It seemed to work really hard, too. It’s probably over 50 years old. The guys said it weighed 1200 pounds and it took 4 of them taking it out in pieces to remove it.
Then the new one arrived and it took them a lot of time to set it up because they put in new water and electrical lines and made everything all new. We were without heat for a couple days, but luckily the cement walls held in enough heat so that we weren’t freezing.
We used 1-Hour Heating and I was really impressed with how professional and personable they were. Not to mention all the time they took.
The chimney people also came this week as well to get a look at what the furnace people were doing so they could get ready to put in our chimney liner next week. At least the house will be buttoned up and ready for winter and we will be safe. I just wish the money could be spent on more ‘fun’ things...
There were fun things, though – our new furniture finally arrived! We ordered from a small local shop and got a great price on these pieces, but the tradeoff was having to wait a month to get them in.
I got my fainting couch!
I was going to wait until November to do the wallpaper, but I am disliking it so much with our new furniture LOL!
Pixie approves of both pieces:
We need to do a scale model of things and play around with the layout in the living room. It feels unorganized and we can’t agree where stuff should go. I’ll have to post full pictures for some advice on placement.
Now for the pink item of the day:
After a super busy week with work and all this stuff, I want to spend some time doing fun fall things. We are hoping to get to an apple orchard or something festival-ish this weekend 😀
