Renovation 2007: Air Conditioning

If I haven’t mentioned it, Phase II of my house renovations is 99.99 complete. Phase I was the kitchen, Phase II was the big monster budget killing renovation, Phase III will be the cellar. But Phase II is 99.99% complete, the .01% is some touch up painting I need to get around to doing with the doors and where the wall meets the ceiling.
Anyway, I have AC, and the system that I have is the Space Pak. We’ve had a few warm days, and so far my feelings are mixed. First off, where I work there are spots where it is 60F and I have to bundle up, so I don’t want to freeze at home. And so I’ve had the AC on and turned it off because I thought it was too chilly. The 1st floor does get nice and cool and the 2nd floor, where the heat rises, is iffy. It isn’t hot, just noticeably warmer. This can be dealt with the ceiling fans.
I do like the look of it. No boxy ducts.
When Summer comes I’ll give another review.

Fish Fry

Dear Neighbors,

I write to remind you that the Youth Services Committee of the Bates Area Civic Association, Inc. is sponsoring another Fish Fry tomorrow afternoon, from 11:00 a.m. until they are sold out of food.. The location of this event is the Ebenezer Baptist Church, 46 Q Street, N.W., Washington, DC. All proceeds from this and other YSC activities will be applied to the implementation of youth programming in the community this summer. If you get a chance and would like a delicious meal, I urge you to give these guys a try. The a reasonable facsimile of the flyer that has been circulated around the community is pasted below. Hope to see you there!
