My wife and I tried to have a baby for 8 years, before we actually got pregnant. We thought that we were doomed to be childless, and then we got pregnant out of the blue. Since my wife and I were convinced that we would never have any children, we turned the spare room into an office. With a baby on the way, we decided to add an addition to the house instead of taking out the office. My wife drew up the plans for the nursery, while she was bedridden from work during the first few months of pregnancy. She is an architect for a prestigious building firm in our city. My wife made the room big enough for a small couch, rocking chair, and crib. There is also a small bathroom off the room, so my wife can bathe the baby. My wife wanted to do something special in the room. She wanted radiant heat for the floors. Since our baby was due in November, I gave in to the extravagant expense. The radiant heated floors required a specialty HVAC contractor. The contractor wasn’t cheap, but they did an amazing job with the installation. All of the small details are perfect. The carpet looks great and radiant heated floors feel wonderful. When our son was born, my wife and I really appreciated the extra warmth from the radiant heat. When our son isn’t wearing diapers anymore, maybe we will think about adding radiant heat to the rest of our house. Until then, it’s too expensive to think about any major house renovations.
