Before work even began on our son’s bedroom, we had to remove an old wall AC unit. It had been there since the house was built and had become obsolete when we upgraded all the units in the house.
We should have asked for it to be removed by the folks who installed a new unit.
But we didn’t because we like to do things ourselves. Apparently, six years was just the right amount of time to work up our nerve.
I had hoped it would only take a few hours to remove the unit and trim, take down the old panel and install a new one.
I was about an hour off.
Still, it didn’t turn out too bad. But obviously, it needs to be painted. I’m beginning to think of that as the story of this renovation. Looks okay; needs paint. And the cans need to be recycled and the site cleaned up. Sheesh. We’re getting there:D
Until next time.
I’m not a DIYer but I know a guy who used a chainsaw to cut a hole for a new attic window.
