Returned home around the 1st of October to find several major repair projects waiting for us. The first was replacement of the AC/Heating system, which we think may have been effected by a power surge when the electricity came back on after Hurricane Irma.
The second was repair and replacement of the yards irrigation system. We have only been in the home for 3 years, but it was a model home for 5 years before that, so 8 years makes for a worn out and out of date system.
Our house looked like it was decorated for Christmas with all the different colored flags telling the irrigation crew what goes where..... The second stage of this repair starts next week!
