My hubby & I were looking for our perfect home.
The people I was with and I abruptly realized there was no perfect when you were on a tight budget & had to settle for nearly perfect.
There was no finished basement or new HVAC system in the house, however our basement was all dirty & damp, & the HVAC system needed to be updated as soon as possible. It was fall, & our first change was installing a new gas furnace. The people I was with and I also had to install a sump pump because of the wet floor. It was more care about mud, & I realized the HVAC professional was going to need to labor in that filth. I could only imagine the HVAC team getting the gas furnace into the basement, & someone needing to crawl around in the mud to do the installation. I felt guilty doing this to the HVAC professional. When the HVAC team arrived with the gas furnace, I winced when I showed them to the basement. I followed them downstairs & apologized for the basement. The people I was with and I had just bought the cabin & hadn’t had time to make any repairs. The HVAC professional waved myself and others away & said it wasn’t a large deal. They had been in a lot worse arenas than this a single. He told myself and others how he had to install a new HVAC system in a mortuary. He was laboring in the room where they were doing embalming, & he realized he knew the guy the mortician was laboring on. He threw up all over the sterile floor. The mortician was devastated, although he was so embarrassed that he cried care about a baby.
