When it comes to DIY projects, my brother is something of a fanatic. In spite of his apprentice-level knowledge with trade skills, he actively takes on any project that professional companys deem “user friendly”. To supply him credit, he has successfully replaced toilets in both lavatories of his house, and only caused a major water leak a single time! Most recently though, he was sold on buying and installing a ductless mini-split proposal for his house. As soon as his common Heating, Ventilation and A/C repair company said it was within the realm of occasion for my brother to install it himself, he rapidly gathered the tools, bought the proposal components and got to work! Still, it was only a few minutes into his replacement that my brother called me, asking to help him with the “heavy lifting”. When I arrived, my dear brother told myself and others he wasn’t sure how sizable of a hole he needed to make in the wall to push cables through. He explained that the ductless mini-split proposal simply needed the user to bore a hole through the wall, through which the necessary cords would pass and connect to the indoor air handler. Honestly, he didn’t genuinely need my help anyway – he just wanted a fresh set of eyes to make sure he wasn’t chopping a basketball-sized hole in the wall. More often than not, my brother just wants someone to gloat to as soon as he successfully finishes another project. We’ll see how much he enjoys to gloat when he screws a single of these projects up someday!
