Custom tv stand to match the look

A year ago I contacted a custom furniture builder to make me a kitchen table! I have one of those open floor plans.

So the kitchen table and the tv sit were basically side by side, however the difference in quality was night and afternoon.

My kitchen table was this class, sleek, charming, and a show worthy table. My cable sit was made of particle board, clearly purchased from a thrift store, and it didn’t match my house. I debated and debated on what to do. I tried to find cable stands that would match my custom table, but nope, nothing was the same quality. So I had to call the custom furniture builder again. The cable sit is perfect. It is about the same height and size as the table. The front of each matches one another and looks perfect. I have silver handles on the cable sit that are soft close. It has made my home office look so much more charming. Now when the table and sit are side by side, it looks amazing. I have a small end table in the home office that I think I am going to be next to. I am distraught aht once the end table is built I am going to need a custom shoe rack since it is in the same room, and once that is done I will want a desk for my study room and dresser, you see where I am going with this right? I think all my furniture will end up being custom made. You can’t beat the quality.

Trying to get more efficient heating and cooling system

I suppose I’ve lived in the dark to some degree about the various details of being a real home owner.

The entire experience has been strictly out of reach for me, until recently.

I’ve transitioned from apartment living to residing in a real house, and it has been quite a learning experience, to say the least. For instance, I had no idea how much renters insurance cost, or how many pieces of equipment we would need to care for a lawn. I also had no idea that there were so many HVAC options on the market, or how much money they could save you in the long run. For the first time in my life I’m greatly concerned about energy efficiency and operating my heating and cooling system for as little money as possible, because having a large house really eats up energy and raises monthly bills sky high. It turns out that I’ve had the most basic and least efficient heating and cooling equipment on the market for my entire life so far. We’ve always employed conventional forced air furnaces to combat the cold, which I’ve now realized are extremely inefficient for heating an entire home. I’ve also had a fair share of air conditioning units that were dramatically out of date and sucked up power like there was no tomorrow while barely managing to cool the space they were supposedly servicing. Now that I’ve learned about all the pitfalls of poor HVAC machinery, I can’t turn a blind eye to my subpar heating and cooling systems any longer!

Furnace is so loud at night

I’ve always done well when I have background noise for highly concentration dependent tasks or sleeping at night.

  • I love keeping talk radio on, and I’ve been a huge proponent of running fans at night in order to create a gentle humming sound to calm my brain; however, it turns out that box fans may be the only HVAC component that puts my mind at ease.

I say this because we recently got a new furnace which is keeping me awake at all hours of the night, and I’m at my wits end trying to deal with the insomnia it is creating. On the first night that the heater was installed, we had outdoor temperatures well below 0 degrees. We needed to run the furnace for the entire night just to keep the house in livable conditions, and the furnace didn’t let us forget about it’s hard work combatting the frigid outdoor conditions. All night I heard it banging at an unbelievable volume, and went down to investigate several times to make sure everything seemed to be in order. Each time I approached the heater closet, there were no suspicious odors or sights to be seen, only loud banging noises emitted from the metal cabinet. We called the local HVAC specialist for an inspection the next day, but they reassured us that the heating unit had been installed correctly. They recommended upgrading the furnace as soon as possible to eliminate the unpleasant noise, but our hands are tied until we save up some money for an HVAC upgrade.

AC is pretty rough, needs to be manhandled

When we moved into our new house it was clear that there were improvements to be made. There were nooks and crannies that needed attention, and plenty of yard work to be done. We needed to repaint and recarpet a few spaces, but it seemed like a manageable set of projects. What we didn’t foresee, however, was needing to replace our HVAC unit with some level of immediacy in order to survive the horrid summer. Right when we moved in we realized that the air conditioner was going to be a bit of a hurdle. We were still unpacking boxes when it became apparent that the indoor air temperature was not reaching the temperatures we hoped, and continually interrupted our work by getting up to check on the thermostat. No matter what settings we employed, the AC seemed to have a mind of its own, and did not want to cool our home to a low enough temperature. In total frustration, covered in sweat and dirt, we went outside to look at the central cooling unit and fidget around with whatever components we could get our hands on. When this still didn’t work, we ultimately got so mad that a few kicks were thrown at the troublesome air conditioner. To our amazement, this made the equipment immediately start humming a familiar tune. Now every time we can’t get the temperature low enough from the thermostat, we have to go outside and beat on the AC before it will operate appropriately. This is impractical and unsustainable, and my hands and feet hurt.

Learning to operate new thermostat

I’m a fairly intelligent human being, and I’m not just tooting my own horn.

I’m not saying that I have the IQ of a rocket scientist, but I do get along with people in the profession and that must count for something.

I’m a quick study and a rapid learner in almost all subjects, but there is one area that I fail to improve upon; I have never ending difficulty dealing with technology. I can operate a computer perfectly fine, so long as there are no bugs and everything runs according to plan. When things are acting up, however, I lose my cool and can’t usually remedy the issue. That’s why I was so nervous when we got a new thermostat installed with a fancy touch screen panel as the temperature control unit. The new temperature control mechanisms seemed pretty intuitive when I was looking through the instruction manual and I thought I was going to have no problem learning how to set temperatures, develop temperature control programs, and automatize our HVAC system for maximum efficiency. I imagined quickly learning my way around the thermostat and easily developing intricate programs for the household, but the reality has not been quite so impressive. Rather, I’ve been staring at the temperature controls for minutes on end, pressing buttons that seem to make sense, and crying in defeat when the temperature does not obey my desires. Maybe in a few months I”ll have a better grasp on this techy new thermostat and the heating and cooling system will actually do what I want.

Had to stay with mom

I’m usually pretty easy to get along with, as far as most people are concerned.

I’m relatively laid back and like to find the bright side of things, even when times are tough.

There is one person who I cannot spend much time with unless I’m looking for an argument; my mother. She’s a perfectly lovely person, except she’ll never listen to a word I say or pay me any respect as a fellow functional human being. That’s why it was so hard to swallow my pride and ask her for help last week when my HVAC system failed. I got home from work the other night to find that my apartment was well over 90 degrees inside. I had left the thermostat on its normal settings, so I was pretty confused about what had gone wrong. I checked out the AC unit as best I could, and even called an electrical engineering friend over to examine the big air conditioner. Neither one of us could find an obvious reason for the trouble, so I finally resolved myself to spending money on a professional service and called the nearest HVAC specialist to investigate. After hours of waiting for the heating and cooling repairman to arrive, he finally concluded that the AC would need to be replaced entirely. Because my landlord is a piece of crap, he took his sweet time confirming the order and installation. During this time I had no choice but to flee from the sweltering heat of my apartment and had to call my mom – I’ve been staying with her for days now.
