    With 3 big boilers and all that beautiful piping, I'd call it a mansion not a house

    I think the house is about 22,000 square feet. There are 12 geo thermal units, and probably 30 to 40 radiant zones but some of those are towel bars, shower walls and under tubs. The link below is a pic of the house when it was under construction and they decided they didn't like how close to the road it was so they moved it back about 100'.

    look like union work for some union compines.
    GOOD WORK IS NOT CHEAP! AND CHEAP WORK IS NOT GOOD!

    IF YOU THINK A GOOD HVAC COMPANY IS EXPENSIVE. THEN YOU SHOULD TRY A BAD ONE.

    Yeah, that's my old beater. Hitting almost 300K and still runs like a clock. (Including the ticking)

    It's an early 94 with the last of the mechanical diesels (called InDirect Injection) and a factory turbo. In mid 94, Ferd switched to the Powerstroke and retired the workhorse IDI. The Plow is an 8ft fisher commercial, the body is a Knapheide, don't remember the brand of the top boxes. and the gate is a Theiman. The ladder rack is a homebrew.

    I've put this truck thru hell over the years, but it's always been good to me. I bought it at about 5 months old with 3 or 4K on the odo, and right now it's sitting right around 290,000. It's had the usual stuff for something with this mileage, like 5 sets of tires, a radiator, injection pump, 2nd clutch, and 7 or 8 sets of brakes. (It's hilly around here and she sits at 9300lb's.) I did all sorts of mods to it, from tweaked injection pump to straight exhaust and larger turbine housing and outlet, gauges, it used to have propane on it, and a few other goodies to increase to go factor.

    Now I just mosey it along and hope it holds up. I was ready in 08 for a new one, but they had a lotta trouble with the new 6.4 and this year I'm just pinching pennies and trying to keep the bills paid. Besides, I live in a super property tax enviro and just don't want the $1600 bill for a new rig when this one works just fine and still looks OK.(The house taxes are enough to keep me sucked dry, and not in a good way.)

    That's about it. I'll keep rockin this old beast it either gives up the ghost(not likely) or something nicer comes along reasonably priced. (also not likely)

    Here's a couple pics, and sry for the threadjacking.
