    How much is that going to run you? Are they having to run a water line? or is there one close?

    That's real cheap to replace. And seems pretty high for a repair.

    hvac place came on friday to check out my attic for a humidifier. got vetoed since the area is unconditioned. the pipes have frozen up there before so makes sense. he said he's done them on other houses in my hood with the same floorplan. difference being those peoples attic spaces with all the crap are sealed off and insulated. F'd by our builder i guess.

    lol. i talked to the guy about it a little bit. i don't think it would be too much work. more of a pain just b/c its cramped. i would also need to install a door inside b/c i have a bunch of storage up there.

    i almost wonder if it would be easier to just insulate my attic, but someone else told me not to insulate the inside of my roof. im gonna go snags some pics in a little bit.

    edit: here go...

    GD I would hate to have to do any work in there. Which is why inhate residential HVAC. And why is there insulation laying all over your furnace?

    idk. never touched that part. i did lay all the flooring where the crap in storage is. sucks b/c you gotta hop over the duct to get there :lol: i thought about doing stairs at one point b/c they would be easy but didn't want to do that if i ever had to close off the whole area.

    The only thing that bothers me is the traditional oak colored door. They just put it in a year or so ago so I didn't swap it out...yet.

    Looks good for the space. But Inwould be claustrophobic in that room. What is on the other side of that interior wall?

    It would be a pain in the ass to sand it down and stain it. I'd rather just buy a new door and stain it.

    Why claustrophobic? It's not bad at all. 2 big windows and opening to the second floor. Doesn't feel that way at all.

    Other side of the wall is a hallway to utility room, bathroom, and laundry room.
