I Built My Wife an HVAC Equipment Cover

My wife doesn’t ask for much.

  • As long as she has a cup of coffee and a hot shower in the morning, she’s pretty relaxed for the rest of the day.

One of the reasons I married her was because of how self sufficient she was. She’s not needy and she doesn’t constantly nag me. If she wants something, she either gets it herself or finds a way to get it. This is why, when I heard her mention something about covering up the HVAC equipment out back, my ears perked up. I’m always finding ways to do things for her, because she asks so little of me. As soon as she mentioned the HVAC equipment, I began researching ways to safely cover it. I really wanted to surprise her! I found a ton of blogs online from other homeowners who had done the same thing. I found one blog with photos of the finished covering, and I thought my wife would like it. It also didn’t seem too difficult to make. Essentially, I only needed some pieces of wood from the hardware store and a few tools. Thankfully, I already had a shed full of tools. While my wife was out running errands on the weekend, I began building the HVAC covering. It was a little more difficult than I thought it was going to be, but it still didn’t take long to make. When I finished building the HVAC equipment covering, I waited patiently for my wife. As soon as she saw what I’d done, she was thrilled!
