I recently moved from New York to Indianapolis, and a new chapter in my life has begun. I am happy with the house my wife and I purchased, and I finally will undertake some do it yourself projects that I wasn’t able to do at the apartment. I’m the first to admit that I have limited handyman skills for a 27-year-old guy, but I am always willing to take on basic projects around the house for fun. One of the first things I’ll be doing is adding a fire pit in the backyard. I’m sure I’ll have help from my brother since he lives here in Indianapolis.
Having my brother nearby will be a great advantage for my wife and I. Unlike myself, my brother is handy with all sorts of things. He works for Indianapolis HVAC and has plenty of experience working with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The furnace in our house is fairly old, so one of the first things we budgeted for is a new furnace
My brother knows I’ll be giving him a call sooner or later to replace the furnace and offer suggestions for a new air conditioning unit as well. This works out great because I have someone who I know and trust to offer honest recommendations and complete the job in a fair amount of time. I also know that I don’t have to deal with someone else charging a high price for the job. I’ve always found HVAC interesting, so perhaps I can learn a bit from my brother and take on something new if my present job doesn’t work out as anticipated.
There aren’t too many other crucial repairs to make other than replacing the furnace. I would like to save up some money for a new roof, but I think that project will have to wait until next year. My neighbor has a nice looking roof, so I asked him who did the work and he was more than happy to give me the details of the contractor. The neighborhood seems great, and there are many activities nearby.
