In March of 2020, Covid was becoming more real that Timothy started to worry a bit.
There had been a SARS outbreak before that sort of didn’t entirely pan out the way they thought it would.
However, Covid was on a whole other level. Once the contractor sent them home from work to use their own air conditioning system late that Spring, Timothy this was the beginning of something bad. There was just this sense that being cooped up inside the central air conditioning system of his beach house was not going to be a short term situation. And Timothy was right. But really, he and his family had it so much easier than millions of others who dealt with far worse. Sure, Timothy had to figure out how to live inside the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C of the beach house together and take pay cuts. But he kept his job. Still, Timothy noted that finding space for himself was imperative. With the girls schooling remotely and him and his partner sharing the beach house office, Timothy was in need of some privacy. He adores his family but he also needs some quiet time for himself as well. Yet, there just wasn’t an unclaimed area that Timothy could sort of slide into for some quiet. That’s when he decided to reuse the garage. It had become such a dumping ground for junk that Timothy couldn’t park the cars in there. So he cleaned it out and organized that area officially. Then, he contacted the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C specialist plus had them add a ductless heat pump on the exterior wall of the garage. Timothy is still using the air conditioning system in the garage as his home office.
