So last time I told you about how the progress on my home is slow. I just wanted to let you know that nothing has really changed from last time. We are still waiting on the plumbing and heating guy…except now, as of today, his unit in the National Guard was activated and he is now working there full time. This frustrates me since as you know I now live in Wyoming. I need HEAT.
I would also like hot water out of my tap…I know, I know…totally unreasonable of me. Now, the guy doing the plumbing and heating has known about his guard unit being activated for months. He just took on too many projects and didn’t really finish up any of them. So it looks like I will be figuring out how to finish his job on my house if I want hot water and HEAT before he is done in around 18 months and can get back to finish my job. Again, I live in WYOMING…it gets cold here…18 months of waiting isn’t really feasible.
One of the biggest problems with the heating system is that we chose to go with a boiler system. Now this really shouldn’t be a problem, except that it turns out the heating guy wasn’t certified. We just found this out this week. He claimed to be, but then admitted that he decided not to take his class until after he returns from his guard duty. The boiler system that he half installed is from Canada. Again not really a problem, except that all of the instructions are in French. I speak English. We found the English directions online, so that is some progress. We think that the Motherboard on the system is not functioning. Hopefully we will get that working soon.
All I can say is that I am glad that I have a smart dad who has worked around and with all of these things in his life. If it wasn’t for him, I am afraid it would be a cold and long 18 months in which I would become increasingly crabby. Dads are great!
So I guess what I am saying, is that if you want something done right, then just do it yourself. (Or have your Dad do it…)
