Totally Inspired by the wave of people renovating seasoned dwellings, my husband and I made the decision to purchase a seasoned cabin of our own after we got married, however it needed quite a bit of work to be taken care of. This meant the property was insanely cheap and we were willing to put in the effort to turn that cabin into our first dwelling together… There were a lot of things we weren’t quite ready for, however we were entirely determined to get through these things together. The experiences only helped us to grow closer to each other. I recall one of our biggest goof ups was making the decision that the cabin was finally in great enough condition for us to transfer into it right as Winter was beginning when we had put no real thought into the dwelling’s heating appliance. When we were working in the heat before it started to get frosty, a simple window AC appliance was enough to keep us cool, however heating a cabin in the winter months is quite a bit more complicated than that. Some form of heating was totally necessary, as we soon learned after our first night in the cabin separate from it. I was up first thing in the morning hours to make a call to the HVAC provider in our section with the earliest business hours to come out and check out our basement. I knew there was a seasoned gas furnace appliance down there, and I really wanted to see if they could get it working and, if not, supply us a quote on installing a modern oil furnace at the soonest possible time. As luck would have it, the HVAC company was able to get our seasoned gas furnace up and functioning at a low cost, and we eventually were able to make plans to get an update later on when we could afford it.
