Cleaning; Top to Bottom
Here is Christian's farmhouse attic scrubbed clean with only major cooling elements left in it. The gigantic fan between two converging chimneys actually pulls enough hot air out of the brick insulated house, to ignore a large AC unit waiting to hook into new duct work someday. It has an insulating cover (right) for winter.
We have decided not to install a high velocity AC system because of the noise and invading parts. The parts here were never used and can be given away.
I have power washed the basement so that Bill and Christian can start installing a Weil-McLain boiler, indirect water heater and water tank. The base was built deeper with cement block we had and wood panels will hold seven heat zones of forced hot air, modern cast iron wall radiators, and in-floor hydronic PEX radiant heat in both full bathrooms.
The middle of the house is still being scrubbed and more old paint is being stripped!
