Things Have Changed........
The before photo shows an antique furnace that heated the house all these years. It must have taken up 40 square feet with all the stove and fan apparatus behind this.
This after shot shows a nice compact furnace sitting over along the wall. It has a fan system behind it too but it doesn't take up much room. The white pipe drains away moisture. Seeing all that space open now really made a difference in the looks in the basement. It made it look like I had dumped out a lot of things when really it was just the furnace that took so much space. The ductwork of the old one also made it difficult to walk around down there.
One of my friends at school had bought a house in the area and her husband demanded that all those grills be removed from the house. They were surface mounts and could be removed. Our old house needs the grills so the old house doesn't look like it had modern widows replaced and the rest of the house is still old looking. The gills help to make a design bled for the age of the house.
I will end this blog today with the birds sitting in the dining room window. I had to remove all of the plants from the area as the workmen were working on a vent that sits right below the widow. The plants are scattered all over the house in places that may not be best for them. The two wooden sculptures look lost without vegetation.
Thank you for stopping by today.
