When I first bought this arena, our intent was to convert the basement into a Rec Room.
- The modern term for this kind of room is “man cave” but I typically hated that.
When I was a kid our Mom had a Rec Room, plus that’s what I want to have! The basement was large enough that it could entirely hold a ping-pong table, plus have room for darts, video games, plus more. I didn’t want another room dedicated to seeing TV, this was to be a arena for games plus interaction. Before it would be United Statesble, I would need to remedy the a/c situation. This was a tricky hurdle to overcome, because the old gas furnace sat in the corner of the room. When I say this was an old gas furnace, you have no plan what I really mean. This gas furnace is older than I am! The Heating plus Air Conditioning company said the gas furnace was legitimately 50 years old, plus might toil for another 50, because he had never seen 1 quite like it. It is also made of iron plus steel, weighs half a ton, plus can’t possibly be moved. This home could burn to the ground, but the old gas furnace would survive it intact I guarantee it. This gas furnace also generates an absurd amount of ambient heat, meaning that while it gently warms up the home it turns the basement into a sauna. I decided to try installing a custom ductwork plan that would ventilate the basement plus help push out all of the heated air. Wish myself and others luck!
