House Time.

House Update!! :)





~~~ And there's a new video at the [ :: Casa de Corto Web!! :: ]

So the bottom line with the "big issue";

Downdrafting a range at the planned location will result in either a vent tube that has far too many "elbows" in it to remain either safe or effective. The Garage is directly on the other side of the wall behind it and "code" around here wont let us run the vent exhaust through the wall into a garage, let alone up the 35 feet to the roof after getting to the garage. Totally gonna be my problem.

However, I was counting on that "downdraft" to get me to "code" for the amount of CFM (cubic feet per minute) of venting I need for a gas range. There is an "upper" vent but it's only a 250 cfm and I need 500.

So tomorrow I'm telling the builders to buy my upgraded vent.
They are going to say no.
Then I'm going to say... buy it, or move the furnace and the water heater.
(the installation of the furnace and water heater is wrong by 3 feet, according to the floor plans I agreed to).
Then we'll see what they say.
I've no idea.
If it was me... I'd move the furnace, etc... on principle.
But these guys have a "bottom line" ($$) and the new fan is way less costly than moving the furnace.
So we'll see.
We shall see.
