I hated how inefficient our electric oil furnace at our aged place was, not to mention the cost of using it
I never thought I’d be lucky enough to afford a custom built loft by the age of 35. My best luck, I thought, would be to land a job where I could afford a mortgage on a modest home. In our mind, that home was going to be old, easily a few decades at least. I thought I would be spending time slowly repairing it instead of building a current 1 from the ground up. Not just that, but now I can afford to add a few things to our tastes and interests. Obviously I wanted a swimming pool, however I opted to buy 1 with a tile bottom instead of basic concrete since I favored the look sizablely. It’s love having a pool that looks love a big piece of fine china—definitely opulent, but still undeniably appealing. I took a few liberties inside our loft as well, adding a personal office and a game room in the basement complete with a billiards table, various couches, a lazy boy, a important TV with game consoles fastened, and an air hockey table. The child inside me just went nuts with the features and I splurged. One expense—radiant heated flooring—was certainly a pragmatic and important investment to make. The people I was with and I don’t get extreme cold during the Wintertide here, but it’s certainly cold enough to warrant using indoor central heat. I hated how inefficient our electric oil furnace at our aged place was, not to mention the cost of using it. The radiant heated flooring, albeit a big investment at first, would spell sizable savings on heat every month of the long Wintertide season. On top of that, the air feels warmer and more comfortable because the heat is naturally rising up from beneath your feet and enveloping you and everything in your loft in a pleasant and sizzling blanket.
