New washer water supply and drain line, 220V outlet for electric
dryer, vent for dryer, and pot light in ceiling. The holes are patched,
but obviously not painted yet.
The old oil furnace that was installed in 1969. It was still running
strong, but cost a fortune to operate. That's the electric water heater
next to it. It was only a couple years old, but it was too small.
The old fuse boxes were behind the furnace. They must have been
disconnected in '69 when the furnace was installed right in front of
them, and a new circuit breaker panel was installed in a new location.
The furnace and water heater out of the room so we could patch
holes and paint.
Looks a lot better and brighter with a fresh coat of white paint.
And a new window helps too. We decided to go with obscured glass
on this one.
And a new furnace just in time for colder weather. We had a
heating contractor do the installation and run all our gas line. I
think it was money well spent since they were done with the whole
thing in about 7 hours.
A closer look at the new furnace.
And our new water heater. The furnace contracters connected it to
the chimney for us since it was right there. We still need to put the
earthquake straps on.
