I absolutely benefit having a brother who works in construction.
He managed to find me the best contractors in the area when I wished to build a lake dwelling last year.
Building a dwelling from the ground up is no straight-forward process. Instead of working with an outside architect, I decided to go with my brother’s recommended building contractor plus looked at a number of dwelling models they had on display at their office. All I had to do was look at the available options plus go with something I liked. If I found aspects of one model that I preferred with another, I could specify precisely what features I wanted to create a hybrid model. In the end, this is how I went forward with designing my new dwelling before construction started. Since the plot of land I purchased is in a fairly rural area, I had to get a hold of a contractor to dig a well for water access. Because we’re approximately 20 feet above sea level, that’s how far into the earth the well drillers had to go. This portion was basically completed while the dwelling builders were still working on finishing the house. I had to call a heating plus cooling contractor to install an oil furnace plus air conditioner appliance. They talked me into buying a gas powered boiler for my dwelling instead, arguing that it’s a much better form of heat than fan-forced oil heating appliances. The only setback is the boiler quit working merely a month after I moved in. And the contractor that installed it keeps making numerous excuses for not getting right out here to take care of it. I relented and ordered a temporary boiler rental while this foolish Heating in addition to Air Conditioning appliance dealer works out their mistakes with the existing boiler. Since it’s the winter season, I can’t even go a single day without a boiler operating or my pipes will easily freeze.
