One more "Mod" to add to the list.
With the brutal heat and humidity and "Heat Index" of 108 it was bring the cars into the dining room or "Chill" the garage. 12000 BTU Mini Split cools and will heat if needed.
Couple of hours to install, vacuum the evaporator and lines, release the pre charge from the outside unit and chill!.

Given the last 4 days or so with temps feeling well over 110 degrees, I bet you're loving it!!!!!!

I've been considering something like that, but we only get a few days a year of 90+. Other Michiganders melt... I'm just fine crawling under the car... it's getting heat in the winter that is the real difficulty! May one day have an electrician run a 220 line out to the garage or see if we can add on to the dryer feed on the other side of the back wall to add a heater... maybe...

I've got heat in my garage but no cooling! Looks like a good idea, Bob! Impressed you did it yourself - I've heard it isn't too bad of a job to do but not sure I'd attempt it.

My main issue with doing that is the outside unit. Right now I have nothing on that side of my house other than the dryer and fireplace exhaust vents, and the garbage/recycle can paver pad I installed with some decorative fencing. HOA hasn't said anything about that can pad and likely won't but a minisplit outside unit might raise questions, along with the large pipe that connects it. I have no shrubs to hide it and it's all shade there.

Interesting that we moved south into "Hurricane Territory" and our "old" home is directly in the area of the Ida devastation. We were on high ground but the surrounding areas get whacked big time by the big storms.
Didn't even get rain here in SC
Family all goo "up north" and I checked in with Clarence and Stephany and they are OK too.

I checked in with the Hoppes and Armentrouts, everyone is OK. I heard Flemington more than once on the news, but it was nothing like Mullica Hill. With family now near Camp David for my cousin’s wedding and my family in Watertown just had a few scares with patio furniture moving around and found a new leak in one of their windows over the upper deck of the shore house. Otherwise all good.

7 recorded tornadoes in NJ. Michigan had 3 a few weeks ago, one very close to our house, but Michigan is the top of tornado alley. Interesting weather we’re having.

Some cool stuff happens in South Carolina.
SpaceX Launch was visible as it passed over our complex.
Then a few days later this view from our back yard!

I was just thinking the other day, two years since our closing is coming up beginning of April. I'm avoiding looking at receipts to see how much we've put into updating our house and doing the maintenance the previous owners didn't do (which our neighbors shared in on Xmas eve with the large double oak between our driveways FINALLY coming down!). It was right about this time two years ago our realtor started sending us MLS listings and we started looking right after our anniversary vacation to Key West, last trip before the world upended itself.

I’m definitely still heading south, I’m just not 100% sure if it’s still going to be SC. My girlfriend’s family is in LA, so things are a bit more complicated. We’re thinking maybe somewhere in the middle, like GA.

It’s only mid January and I’m already so over the cold and snow.
