Updates: June 30 – July 6

Well, after taking a week off to host our first carnival, it’s back to the updates! We’ve been experience a heat wave in Vancouver which led to some adventures in trying to buy a tower fan. You see, Vancouver doesn’t get very hot all that often, but when it does, everyone seems to go out and buy fans or air conditioners. We’ve discovered that being on the third floor on the west side of the building, it gets pretty hot in here during the afternoons. It’s especially bad for CF to the point of affecting sleep. So, we decided to go the less expensive route and get a decent fan rather than spend over$400 on an air conditioner. I’m not even sure where we would have put it!

I had to check or call about 8 different stores before I found a place that still had one! The hope is that it’s still early in the summer so we should get lots of use out of it this year!

  1. Thank so much for the link love! I was away last weekend and came back to it being STIFLING hot in our loft bedroom. We were late to the AC train..

  2. Nice little fan, hope it chills you through the summer, Its is looking nice. Perfect frugal living and saving some bucks on AC. Keep it up

  3. It’s blinkin humid in Ontario but I’m glad we finally bought the A/C a couple of years back. It got to the point where it was too much in the house. We had fans all over the place but with too much open space in the house with high ceilings it didn’t cut it. In my house in the UK I just had fans and opened windows. Your fans looks very modern not like what we have here in our house. We still do use the fan when we don’t turn the A/C on. Have a great weekend mate.. stay cool.

  4. While it can get super cold here in Minnesota in the winter, the summers can also reach pretty high temps. Now that I’m starting allergy shots and have been made aware of how terrible my allergies are, there is no more sleeping with the windows open. Let’s just say the AC is a lifesaver for me. That tower fan looks like a pretty good one, though!
