Home Improvement

We did a little spring cleaning and home improvement this weekend to make our ghetto fabulous house a little less ghetto and a little more fabulous.

When our house was originally built, the room we use as our living room was the garage. Somewhere along the line, someone converted it to a bonus-type room. Like most garages, it was not vented with heating or air conditioning and separated from the rest of the house by a door.

When we moved in, we took out the door and opened the room up to the rest of the house. The house really doesn't have a living room, so we spend most of our time of this room. Only problem is, it is super hot in the summer time and cold in the winter (imagine that!).

So this weekend Manuel decided to run a vent into the living room. After a short jaunt to Home Depot, we -errr he- was all set. After a couple hours of body contortioning work in our not-so-tall attic, we have heat!! That makes it seem like I did anything to complete this project . . . all I did was hand stuff up to the attic and watch Tyler =)

See how pretty she is?? I am really look forward to seeing how this baby works in the dead of summer when its 100+ degrees outside!!
