Mechanics In Place

Posted on October 17, 2012 at 3:51 AM Comments comments (234)
Yesterday was very satisfying for everyone with the installation of the tankless hot water heater to compliment the new high efficiency furnace.  This brings the old girl at 95 Eagle Ave well into the 21st century with what is essentially the heart of the house.
At the same time the stairs to the lower level has been opened up which has had a big impact on the media room.  With the wiring in place the dry wall process begins.
Not to be forgotten the new main floor bath has the shower tiling in place with grouting to be done today.  Very contemporary in appearance.
Tomorrow the new appliances arrive and we are estimated to be at the halfway point in the renovation process.  Baring any surprises we are right on schedule.

Making Progress

Renovations of older houses are always filled with surprises and this property is no different.  The recent cold snap revealed that the 9-year-old furnace had issues.  In fact it required a major repair so instead we scrapped it and installed a new high efficiency Payne furnace.  At the same time we modified some ductwork and are set for winter.  In addition, the traditional hot water heater was removed and replaced with a tankless one - another nod to latest technology.  This provides an endless supply of hot water on demand.  Everything is on schedule and hopefully no more surprises.

Construction Well Underway

After just three days the renovation team has the 95 Eagle Avenue project well in hand.  The framing for the new main floor bathroom and basement bedroom is in place.  With a nod to new technology we are installing a new tankless water heater which ensures an unlimited supply of hot water for the tenants but also is 98% energy efficient.  Several new windows have been ordered.  Rogers is the new service provider for high speed internet and cable television.  An impressive electric fireplace has been obtained for the media room along with a very attractive six chair patio set.  Depending on weather we may be able to have a planned exterior deck on the back of the house completed before winter (if not first thing in spring).  So it all systems go in the process that will make this home another beauty.
