Let’s face it, most contractors want big jobs. Unfortunately, that leaves the little jobs undone. Sometimes folks will turn them into DIY projects, but the results can range from OK to a very homemade look.
I like doing the big jobs too, but I also know that there is a market for smaller jobs, especially if they are done well.
My customer had a HVAC technician out to his house and discovered that the prior owner had incorrectly installed the furnace exhaust. The technician rightly noted that the current configuration was a fire hazard and installed a proper double walled vent pipe.
Unfortunately, this left a big pipe right in the middle of the customer’s basement room. The customer contracted me and I constructed a custom exclosure for him.
