We are expanding to the Fairfield County area and it is beautiful.
LnD Hideaway is excited to announce that we have purchased some property outside Lancaster, OH. So for those of you that have visited us in the past, we have a new destination for you all if you feel like making a road trip. A lot of thought and time went into making this decision and we finally make the move and will have more of the things you love in another area.
The reason you did not know about this sooner was we were running in to some issues with some of the buildings that we were purchasing on the property. There were different problems with some of the cabins that needed taken care of before we felt comfortable moving forward in our decision but, we loved the area so we got in touch with a certified home inspector in Lancaster OH area. Without the help from we received from them we were not going to be able to make the deal happen and move the process along. After BCE Home Inspections did their thing and giving us the once over on the different structures and make us aware of the underlying issues some of the log cabins had, we were able to revise our deal that was contingent on the inspection. Anyways, to make a long post somewhat short, the sellers of the property agreed to have the problems that we were worried about fixed. With that said, the buildings are now in top shape and look beautiful. The picture in the post is one of the new cabins that we are adding the finishing touches on and let me say, it is mesmerizing. We used the same company to do another inspection on the new construction and could not have been happier. The team behind the inspection company was more than pleasing to work with and we know who to go to when we need additional services. If you are in the Lancaster Ohio area and need any type of new home inspection or are purchasing property like we were. I definitely recommend these guys.
2017 Is going to be a big year for us as we will be focusing more on our new location in Ohio. Feel free to reach out to us if you would like additional information about the exact area. The scenery there is more amazing than we had ever hoped for. If you are looking to get away to a relaxing and peaceful place then we should definitely be on your list to stay. I wish you all the best for the new year and look forward to having you visit our new location.
So first thing is first. With the Christmas season rolling in our team at lnd wanted to get in on the action and decorate a little bit. The thing is, we ran into trouble and needed some help.
We did not have enough outdoor electrical outlets to handle the project that we were about to undergo so like anyone, we went over to the handy YouTube to start cracking at this and get more of the things we needed, which were outlets outside of the building. With a quick search we can across this video that helped us out because hey, we are somewhat handy and thought we knew what we were doing.
We started following the guide after we got all of the appropriate equipment needed for the task at hand. We did a pretty good job too if you ask me. We ended up installing a number of outdoor receptacles that all seemed to work and function properly. We tested them out and things were on the up and up. Here is what we came up with and they all looked pretty nice and clean so we were more than happy with the little project we set out to accomplish.
Once we were finish and started plugging in all of the lights we had is when we finally ran in to the issue that we were unaware that we were about to have. All in all I do not know what the total light count was and how much juice we were pulling but it was more than our panel could take. Luckily, we had an old friend in town and on location that own an electrical company in Florida called Sarasota County Electric. Kory just laughed but was more than willing to help out with the job even though this was not a working trip for him. He advised us that we needed a heavy-up.
Naturally I was like “What is a heavy-up?” and he simply replied that we needed a panel upgrade because we were tripping it from all the lights.
All homes and buildings have a limiter for safety reasons for the amount of power it can output for the building. There is a cap and we were exceeding it. Now obviously we paid for the parts and I tried to kick back Kory a little something extra for his time but being old friends he kindly rejected my offer. He said a lot of people need this kind of service around the holidays from adding more things that require more of a demand. Plugging in all the extra lights and other decorations that need electric to function add the the safety cap and its common for anyone to need a panel upgrade. Long story short, after a little time Kory had us up and running.
Now you may be wondering what the finished product looked like but that is for an in person viewing only. So come on down and take a look.
Merry Christmas everyone and remember if you are adding more things to your homes and they seem not to work, this is something that you may also need to look into having done.
