The house we bought came with a sunroom.
I had wanted to move home for decades. But the timing just wasn’t ever quite right. Once we had kids and they were sort of entrenched where we were, I didn’t feel right about jerking them out of their comfort zone. But being a southern girl living up north for all those years wasn’t easy. I don’t care how much I tried, I just couldn’t get accustomed to the winter and all that HVAC heating. Until I moved up here, the worst that winter had to offer where I came from was having to move the thermostat to heating. The heat pump hardly even ran during the winter when I lived down south. But I took my first job offer out of college thinking I’d just live up north for a few years and then work my way back to the land of the heat pump. Of course, it didn’t work out like that. I met my husband, fell in love and we raised a wonderful family. I don’t regret that one bit. But now that I’m back in the south, I’m never leaving again. We had to wait until retirement for me to get back home. But we lucked out and were able to retire in our mid 50’s so we are getting a headstart on the next chapter of our lives. The house we bought came with a sunroom. And I just fell in love with the idea of having a sunroom. What was even better was the fact that the sunroom came complete with a ductless heat pump. This way I’d have all the HVAC cooling I would need to enjoy the sunroom during the hot, hot summer.
