After saving for multiple years, I was finally ready to renovate my bedroom. My method was to completely gut the room down to the studs in the walls. I wanted to replace the electrical wiring, add insulation to the walls, put up modern light fixtures, & lay down hardwood flooring. I’d done a ton of research into refrigerators, ovens, microwaves & dishwashers. I had saved up enough currency to purchase all modern appliances, bedroom lodges & a granite countertop. Once I’d torn everything out, I got thinking about the opening of radiant flooring. I heat my lake house with a boiler plan linked to baseboards. The plan is lovelyly energy efficient, clean & quiet, but the baseboard heating systems detract a bit from part & aesthetics. A radiant flooring plan is installed beneath the floor, taking up no room & never drawing attention to itself. The heat is spread entirely evenly across the floor, eliminating temperature stratification, drafts, & cold spots. I liked the method of walking barefoot on a hot floor in the Wintertime. Because of already having the boiler, I didn’t know the upgrade of the piping for the radiant plan would be all that overpriced. I got an estimate from a local HVAC supplier & went ahead with the project… Unfortunately, all of us ran into all sorts of unexpected problems with the upgrade. There were rotted floor joists that needed to be replaced, plumbing pipes in the way, & delays with the component arriving. My budget for the bedroom remodel kept getting larger & larger. By the the time the radiant plan & my hardwood floor were in locale, I wasn’t sure I could even afford to purchase a microwave or dishwasher.
