By going up I mean all the systems are breaking down.
We The Cottage needs a new hot water heater. That’s been true for some time now.
I priced it out at about $1000.
I don’t go over to the Cottage much in the winter partly because I know it’s filled with the rest of the trim that needs to be installed in the house. Miles of it.
I went into the Cottage this past Saturday and realized it was cooooooold. The thermostat was set on 52 but the temperature in the room was 37. Not good.
The pilot light in the propane furnace was lit and the furnace would come on but the fan which distributes the heat wasn’t coming on.
Charlie thinks the fan switch is faulty so I ordered a new one which he said is easy to install. We’ll see.
Let me preface this next little bit by saying the water in the Cottage has been turned off and the pipes drained so I’m not anticipating a problem if the pipes freeze. However I happened to look in the corner where the waterline comes into the Cottage and noticed it is completely apart.
Getting the Cottage back into usable shape is going to be more of a project than I first thought, not to mention the price tag keeps going up.
And the exterior needs to be painted. Desperately.
Are you longing for Spring?
