    Chris, just my 2 cent's worth ... I think a lot depends on whether you wish to rent or sell. If
    you want to sell, I agree with nealtw. Put a "normal" roof on it, refresh the kitchen and bath,
    landscap...

    It seems back home, they are kicking flower vases over at the cemeteries, breaking the 3/16"
    bolt that holds them to the base, then sealing them for the brass. They got my folks' vase, so
    I took some ...

    Bourbon. I like bourbon. I also like making bourbon. (yes legally) I've managed to come up with
    a pretty good mashbill. And Im within six months of my first run of it to be done aging. I also

    I thought I should add some context to my posts in this thread. My reason for needing a mini
    split solution is I live in an old, 1896, shack in the woods. I'd go broke, a short trip,
    trying to cool my...

    Once you get this unit installed you're going to be way better off than with a window unit.
    I've got a write up on this forum about my experience with an Internet, no name no blame,
    brand. I'll summar...

    So all said and done, buy it local and maybe do some of the prep work like you have done?I
    think buying it from Amazon was a good decision (it was around $600 for a 9000BTU unit, which
    had good review...

    sounds like you made a sound decision in this case.Yessir, I'll leave this one to the pros.
    :thbup:Mind you, I did not give up. It's just the realization that cheap tools would not

    Thank you to all for the advice. Lacking the expensive tools/equipment to do the job myself, I
    have decided to physically install the inside and outside units and connect the wires. I've
    found an HVAC...

    To all: Thank you for the help and advice. I decided to not invest in equipment; I would need:
    tubing flare tool (a good quality one), tubing bender, torque wrench and flare nut (crow feet)
    wrenches, ...

    I'm more worried about the shortening of the lineset. I would either leave it long or braze the

    info than wh...
