Bill hauled the Little House in to have some much needed repairs…among them first and fore most was a new AC unit.
The last time we took her out was sometime back in July of 2009. It was during a record breaking heat wave, and temps in the shade were hovering well above 100F. And yes, you got it, the AC went kerplunk. When we came home, we cleaned the 5’er and made a mental note to get the AC repaired.
5 years later we finally got around to it.
While it was getting recaulked, new AC, slide maintenance and some other little facelift stuff (leak in bathroom vent caused some water damage on doorframe so vent and doorframe are now new), I got out the shop vac and went to work.
Bill cleaned the outside with some bleach and now she is as good as new.
At this point we are not sure what we are going to do with her. The plan was to sell, but then Billy spent the whole day cleaning and came home saying “I think we should keep it”. A gentle probe revealed that he spent the day going through all the awesome memories he has of our time in it with the little kids and he is not sure he can part with the Little House.
Me? I waffle back and forth. One thing we have in the wings is a possible purchase of a much, much smaller unit that is uber cool. We actually have a refundable deposit on one. It would be something Bill and I can use once all the kids have flown the nest, but will also work right now for us.
Decisions, decisions. The repairs will be complete in a day or two, so things are rolling around in our little haeds.

Cleaning…Honestly, it took all of 15 minutes.
