Today at my office I was soliciting opinions about things I might be forgetting with regards to options on the new house. I was looking for things like 'put an outlet in the pantry'. (That's something someone told me a few weeks ago and even though I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to plug in in the pantry (it's just a closet, not like a walk-in pantry), I feel like I WILL want to plug something in in there!) Instead I got a bunch of ideas I did not in fact agree with. Like, 'run a gas line to the patio'!
Let's be clear. That is not a bad idea. You can grill right there and not deal with the heartbreak of empty propane tanks. However, it's not an idea I'm interested in.
Also plugs in the basement (I think someone mentioned that). Also conduits for cables for wall mounted tvs. Also ... I can't remember. We talked about a lot of things. Everyone has opinions about outlet placement.
None of the non gas-line-outside things are things I haven't already considered, but when you ask for opinions, it's hard to be like 'hey here are the four hundred things I've decided I do or do not want so don't worry about those', and it's hard to be like 'nope already considered that' to the first four hundred things that are proposed.
Basically, I'm a dummy. Who knew that asking for opinions would actually get me opinions?
Oh, right. Damn.
I did stop by the model home after work, though, to check out outlet placement. So maybe I did learn something? Despite myself?
