My family grew up in a remote area of the country, in heavily wooded terrain.
It was beautiful, our closest neighbors were over two miles away, and a little stream ran through our corner of the woods! So my siblings and I grew up wading up and down it in the summers, and walking across its frozen surface in the winters! The trees grew tall over our small house, which was in a small clearing, and our beach house was about a 10 minute walk from where the woods concluded, and a vast meadow was sprawled out. The only negative to living this way was that there was no electricity, and our only source of heating was a wood burning stove in each room of our house! As our parents grew older, and keeping up with that amount of wood splitting was starting to become daunting, they had an Heating and A/C professional come take a look! She said that her Heating and A/C com[any would be able to set up a gas line from our neighbors to our house, so that we would be able to install a Heating and A/C component and air conditioning if both of us wanted. All of us were happy with this idea, and immediately helped to draw up a plan for our modern Heating and A/C addition. A few months later, everything was in place with the gas line, and our Heating and A/C tech came back out to install our new Heating and A/C unit. All of us were happy to finally have it up and running, and when it finally was, we turned on the air conditioning, as it was Summer and quite hot. It worked like a dream! All of us cannot wait to test out our new gas furnace this winter.
