I am really beginning to regret offering to assist my Grandfather with cleaning out his beach dwelling to prep it for resale.
He basically wants to transfer down to the South to a retirement community, the sort of venue where you have your own place, however pay everything through a single check the way you might in an apartment building.
It was extravagant, however a truly easy way to live life, & my Grandpa wanting nothing more than a quiet & simple retirement. It turns out his venue is a total mess, needing a whole lot more work than I even expected. It’s really too late for me to back out. Moving the boxes was tough, cleaning it was even more challenging, & the issue with the HVAC ducts was the toughest thing of all. At some point in the last decade, squirrels had taken to living in some of the upstairs HVAC duct, and they made their way in through an exterior air vent. Because Grandpa never went upstairs he never noticed them, however you would have expected that he would notice the smell coming from the HVAC vents. It turns out he hadn’t used the central HVAC appliance in various years. He easily had a small area gas furnace he kept to warm up his feet on frosty days, & an oscillating fan for sizzling days. He basically never touched the temperature control. I told you he was an old bird, however by being so low maintenance he saved himself a great deal of trouble with the HVAC appliance & the ducts. I was unable to get the HVAC ducts completely cleaned, he needs to hire a professional.
