Since I wasn’t laid off when they initially closed the offices with the zone controlled office, I thought I was safe.
Actually, I absolutely wasn’t covered in sweat it all that much anyhow.
I’d been with the contractor for more than 20 years as well as was a senior member of management. I even had our own thermostat in our office. But about a year into the pandemic, our contractor was sold. The new management decided to split loose a bunch of the veteran management in a salary purge. This was pretty shocking. But at least I didn’t have to figure out how to labor from lake house in our own air conditioner. I’d been doing that for more than a year. But while I had made a good living, I was far from ready to hang up our skills as well as retire. Plus, I had more that I wanted to do in the industry. Instead of looking for a new job, I replaced the HVAC in our lake house office as well as started our own consulting contractor. The HVAC replace was a substantial necessary move. I absolutely care about to labor a crisp, cool air conditioner. This drove our partner nuts because I was yanking down the thermostat to low for her. The HVAC contractor was able to install a ductless heat pump inside our lake house office as well as that did the trick. I’m amazed with how efficient as well as powerful the ductless heat pump is. And I’m continuing the streak of having a thermostat inside our office. While I miss various of our colleagues, I have to say that doing our own thing has absolutely been quite as well as adventure thus far.
